Kanye West denies being ‘stumped’ over Donald Trump question

2 min


Kanye West has denied being “stumped” when asked what made him think Donald Trump cares about black people.

The rapper, who paused when asked the question on US talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week, said he simply “wasn’t given a chance to answer”.

Kimmel challenged him over separated immigrant families, asking: “You’ve so famously and so powerfully said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people,’ it makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?”

West considered the question, sitting silently without answering before the programme cut to an advert break.

But the 41-year-old said he was “hit” with a commercial break before being able to deliver his answer.

West did not respond to the question when the show resumed.

He wrote on Twitter: “On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue. I’m reading that I was stumped by a question. Let me clarify the click bait.

“I wasn’t stumped. I wasn’t given a chance to answer the question.

“The question was so important I took time to think. And then I was hit with the let’s go to commercial break.

“That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation.”

West is a fervent supporter of the US president, and owns a “Make America Great Again” hat signed by Mr Trump.

Mr Trump tweeted after the interview: “Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH. It is making a big difference.”
