During his appearance on the show, the "Ye vs. the People" rapper, 40, made a comment that suggested that slavery in the United States had been a "choice" made by African-Americans.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years, that sounds like choice", he said on "TMZ Live" after questions on his pro-President Donald Trump posts and pictures that caused a dust-up last week.

"No matter what, Kanye is my brother".

On the campaign itself, Trump referred to his former manager Paul Manafort as "a nice guy" with whom he rarely interacted.

During an NRA convention speech given on Friday (May 4) in Dallas, Trump thanked Kanye for doubling his approval numbers with African-Americans, NBC News reports.

On Thursday the rapper took to Instagram to express his thoughts and shared a photoshopped image of Kanye with his skin significantly lightened. The poll shows Trump with a 71 percent disapproval rating among African American men, with a 22 percent approval rating.




In a series of tweets that were later deleted, he said he was talking mental slavery.

His comment has had mixed reviews, with Will.i.am claiming to be heartbroken by what he'd said, whereas Justin Bieber showered the rapper with love and support. "I just love Trump, that's my boy". According to US Weekly, Kim didn't know about Kanye's plan to head to the headquarters and share his thoughts until after the fact when everyone was watching it online.

That makes sense considering all that we already know about the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

After realising what he'd just said, he quickly added: 'It's like we're mentally in prison. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter to not support Hillary.

In an interview Tuesday with TMZ, McGraw said West's tweets in support of President Donald Trump and his endorsement of conservative commentator Candace Owens shows "a lack of impulse control" and "dysregulated thought".
