Jimmy Kimmel shuts down Kanye West's love for Donald Trump

Yahoo Entertainment

Kanye West visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he continued to defend his support for President Donald Trump. West famously announced his support for Trump by tweeting a photo of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

And even though he received a lot of blowback from his peers, West continued to support the president and his "dragon energy." In fact, West thought it was a shame that there are not more people who love Trump.

West said, "When I see people just even like go at the president, it's like, why not try love?"

In response to West's comments about giving Trump a chance and being kind to one another, Kimmel said, "That's a beautiful thought but in literal terms there are families being torn apart at the border of this country."

Kimmel then asked West a pointed question, "You 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 did not respond to Kimmel's question. After a few seconds, Kimmel threw to a commercial break. When the show returned, the two were discussing another topic. West did not discuss Trump again.
