After previously saying he would have voted for Donald Trump in the presidential election, Kanye West has now deleted all of his tweets supportive of the new president, according to TMZ.
“I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” the rapper wrote in the deleted series of tweets. “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums [sic], and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”
The tweets came in December after West stopped by for a surprise meeting with the then-president elect at Trump Tower.
“We’ve been friends for a long time,” Trump told reporters while posing with West for a photo in the lobby following their meeting. “We discussed life.”
West had also made his friendly relationship with Trump clear during his Saint Pablo tour, which was cut short when he was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation.
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” West told the assembled crowd, per Pitchfork. “But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.”
“There’s nonpolitical methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic,” West continued. “And that style, and that method of communication, has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication. And I f— with that.”
