Kanye West will cast his first presidential vote ever for Donald Trump

After admitting that he’s never voted before, musician Kanye West is certain that he’ll be casting his first ballot in the 2020 presidential election for none other than 45 himself, President Donald Trump.

In a new GQ cover story, the “Jesus Is King” artist, 42, said that he won’t allow his past fear of criticism keep him from casting his vote this time around.

“I will not be told who I’m gonna vote on because of my color,” West told the magazine. “I’m definitely voting this time. And we know who I’m voting on.”

He added, “Both my parents were freedom fighters, and they used to drink from fountains they were told they couldn’t drink from, and they used to sit in restaurants where they were told they couldn’t eat from. They didn’t fight for me to be told by white people which white person I can vote on.”

The rapper went on to respond to those who thought his career would crash-and-burn after coming out as a Trump supporter.

“I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over. Because guess what: I’m still here! ‘Jesus Is King’ was No. 1!”

“I was told my career would end if I wasn’t with [Hillary Clinton],” he continued. “What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That’s like if Obama’s campaign was ‘I’m with black.’ What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?”

West most recently spoke of his admiration for Trump to the Wall Street Journal, telling the magazine that he refuses to vote Democrat simply because it is expected of him as a black man.

“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine?” West told WSJ. “It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.’”

The “Yeezy” founder came out in support of Trump in 2018, calling the leader his “brother.” The pair famously met at the White House in October of the same year to discuss prison reform, mental health and racism in the US.

“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” Kanye tweeted. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Last summer, West told talk show host David Letterman that he “never voted in my life.”
