Rapper Kanye West is sounding off on politics once again, but this time he's not promoting his own 2020 presidential run — he's showing support for the 2016 victor.

As CNN reports, West gave a late endorsement of Donald Trump at a California concert Thursday, saying:

“I told ya'll I didn't vote, right? But I didn't tell you...I guess I told you that if I would have voted, I would've voted for Trump.”

Though the majority of the crowd booed West for his candid admission, there is at least one person heard in the video clapping.

And West didn't stop there. According to Mashable, a lengthy political rant ensued, in which the artist did bring up his plans for 2020:

He also touched on the issue of racism, telling African Americans to “stop focusing” on it so much:

“This world is racist, okay? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It's just a f*****g fact. We are in a racist country, period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so f*****g long.”

While both Mashable and Twitter user John Grey reported that West also said, “I hope they build a wall, I hope they get rid of them all,” in a freestyle, that claim is being disputed.

Needless to say, Kanye West fans are not happy about his latest political stunt:

Apparently, West also called Trump a “genius,” adding that as a black man and a celebrity, he felt “persecuted for supporting Trump.”
