Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Supports Trump Because He Doesn't Understand His Policies

Kim Kardashian-West spoke with CNN's Van Jones Wednesday and addressed her husband's controversial support of President Trump.

Once again standing by Kanye West, Kardashian explains that her husband doesn't support the "politics," but simply enjoys Trump's "personality."

"He just happens to like Donald Trump's personality — but doesn't know about the politics," said Kardashian during the Criminal Justice Reform Summit.

"I know it's very confusing because when you see someone wearing a red ["Make America Great Again"] hat, you would think that they are supporting that. But he's just fighting for free thought and for the freedom to like a person, even if it's not the popular decision," she added.

West's support of the President came under fire after the rapper appeared at the White House last month and called Trump "a hero."

Many have questioned the rapper's support of a President whose policies are polarizing and anti-minority. However, Kardashian told Jones that his views have been "misconstrued" and "he's not the best communicator."

"He definitely needs a translator," Kardashian said. "I know his heart, and I know that one day what he's been trying to say will come out."

After his wife's appearance, West took to Twitter Thursday and expressed interest in an interview with Jones "within the next 7 days."

I’d like to do an interview with Van Jones within the next 7 days 🙌🏿

This tweet comes shy of a month after West told the world that he would be stepping away from politics.

"My eyes are now wide open and now realize I've been used to spread messages I don't believe in," the rapper tweeted. "I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!!!"
