Previously during the interview, West had talked about his decision to support Trump, when Kimmel asked whether he thought he was a good president. I wouldn't really pass any of the things that you have to pass, but I guess Trump did it.

West, who is 41, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live just over a week after his wife, Kim Kardashian, appeared on the show and told the host that her husband was nearly a billionaire.

"As a musician, an African American, a guy out in Hollywood, all these different things - everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me", he told Kimmel.

West explained that wearing the Make America Great Again hat in public wasn't necessarily about supporting Trump and his policies but about overcoming fear and the negative backlash he knew would follow. At that point, if I'm afraid to be me, I'm no longer Ye.

Kimmel then asked if West was anxious about his wife privately meeting with Trump in the Oval Office to which West jokingly replied, "Well, he is a player". Trump commuted Johnson's sentence in June after Kardashian West pleaded her case.

In a recent interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood show, as reported by People Magazine, the 37-year-old recalled how she thought of doing that because she knew the rapper was in love with her.

And in response to this, Kanye remained dead silent - so much so that Kimmel had to cut to commercial. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

The rapper appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", where he talked about everything from POTUS to his porn habits in a 20-minute interview that was all over the place.

Jimmy Kimmel asked Ye if his attitudes towards women had changed drastically since having his daughter, North West.

The hip-hop star has previously called Trump "my brother" and said they shared the same "dragon energy".

Tell us what you think!

One answer that didn't fall under those parameters was the one he gave when Jimmy Kimmel asked him if President Donald Trump, whom West supports, cares about black people. He continued, "We never approach taking medication". We look back now, and I guess him and his best friend had a convo and he was like, 'Dude.

Another Twitter user put it best, writing, "This is your "I have one black friend" tweet".

"And you can be president of the United States", Kimmel piped in, to West's agreement.
