Kanye Says He Loves Trump Because They "Are Both Dragon Energy." So, Yes. OK Then.

West's tweets in recent days have caused some to think he's been radicalized by the alt-right, but the rapper said Wednesday he's not scared of "the mob."

If it wasn't clear given the past few days of increasingly bizarre tweets, Kanye West on Wednesday made it official: he loves President Trump.

"You don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him," the rapper tweeted Wednesday. "We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

Since he reactivated his Twitter account earlier this month, Kanye has tweeted that he has a new album coming, but he's also retweeted posts that have caused some to think he's being swayed by alt-right ideology.

On Monday, he retweeted nine clips of a livestream from controversial Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, who is popular among men's rights activists, has appeared on Infowars, and enthusiastically supports Trump.

On Saturday, he also said he loves the thinking of Candace Owens, a far-right YouTuber.

It was Kim, you may remember, who once took a selfie during the election with Hillary Clinton and Kanye with the caption, "#HillaryForPresident."

But then after Trump won, Kanye turned up randomly at Trump Tower during the transition to meet the then president-elect.

So after the recent days of controversy, Monday's series of tweets began with Kanye saying he was used to taking heat for his independent thinking.
