Kanye West Shows Support for Trump by Bringing His Shoe Factories 'Back to America'
Sing plans of moving his factories back to United States
Hip Hop star Kanye West opened up about his support for President Donald Trump in an interview where he vowed to relocate his Yeezy shoe factories back to the United States.
West said he plans on moving his shoe factories within the next couple of years, helping bring jobs back to America.
In an interview on Thursday, the singer explained why he supports Trump and wears a MAGA hat:
"Give me some other examples where someone is saying what isn’t culturally what you're supposed to say," he said.
"Give me an example where someone is saying what you're not supposed to say. You don’t want to say it, do you, liberal?"
"For me, as a founder, it’s really important to bring these jobs back to America," he added.
West said he plans to hire U.S. workers in prison reform systems for the production of his Yeezy shoes.
The news comes hours before West's new album, Jesus is King is set to be relased.
Earlier this month, West defended his support of Trump, asserting that making decisions or votes based on race was "mental slavery."

West spoke during his Sunday Service session in Salt Lake City, and pointed out that slavery was abolished when former Republican President Abraham Lincoln was in office.
"That's the Republican Party that freed the slaves," West said.
West added that he faces criticism because he "chose my right."
"And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right?" he asked.
"You black, so you can't like Trump?" he continued.
"I ain't never made a decision only based on my color. That's a form of slavery, mental slavery."
