Kanye West reveals himself as Trump supporter in biggest ever political rant

17 November 2016, 17:56 | Written by Laurence Day

During his Saint Pablo tour stop-off in San Jose, Kanye West went on arguably his biggest political rant ever.

Recognising his audience in the Californian city, he went off on everything from the media to the Internet to politics and philosophy - frequently cutting songs part-way through to talk at length. He did make some effort to bridge the evident political divides, saying that his shows were open to all, but then decided to let his fans know where he stood on the recent election... which didn't go down too well.

As well as praising Trump and his anti-PC style, Kanye revealed that he's planning to follow through with his idea of running for President in 2020.

Fan @RaptorJesuss livetweeted the bizarre-sounding concert. Check out a selection of his tweets below, and view the whole thing on his feed.

Maybe Kanye's political leanings are part of the reason why Jay Z, an avid Clinton supporter, "can't stand" his old friend?
