He wants to make America, uh, great again? Despite the fact that his wife Kim Kardashian supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, Kanye West revealed that he would've voted for Donald Trump. At a concert on Thursday, Kanye told fans that he didn't cast a ballot this year, but if he did, he was with Trump. Um, what?

Never one to shy away from controversy, Kanye stopped his concert in San Jose to go on a lengthy political rant, where he said he "loved" Trump's approach and called him a "f-cking genius." "I told y'all I didn't vote, right?" the rapper said. "What I didn't tell you ... if I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump." His comments were met with a few cheers, and, not surprisingly, a lot of boos.

The father of two then went on to talk about racism in America and urged African-Americans to "stop focusing" on it. "Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism," Kanye told the audience. "This world is racist, okay .... It's just a f-cking fact. We are a racist country."

People began live-tweeting from the show, and one concertgoer said that someone in the audience threw something at Kanye at one point, and Kanye threatened to cancel the show, saying, "Am I not allowed to have an opinion?"

He also expressed a few more interesting views.

Needless to say, people were both shocked and not shocked at all, because #kanye. And, for what it's worth, Kanye still maintains that he's running for president in 2020. "I will be a different kind of president," he told fans. 

It's never easy to take the things Kanye says at face-value, because he obviously gets a thrill out of shocking people -- so, who knows if he really would've voted for Trump. But that said, it'll be interesting to see if Kanye still supports Trump when he's a few months into office.
