Kanye West Responds To Trump’s ‘Deeply Troubled Man’ Remark Against Him.
Kanye West has finally responded to former US President Donald Trump’s statement in which he described him as a ‘deeply troubled man’, saying Trump is a known liar.
The statement from Donald Trump followed their controversial Mar-a-Lago dinner which caused a backlash from the public and key politicians across the country.
Trump tried to distance himself from the meeting and said he was only ‘trying to help a seriously troubled man’ in Kanye West.
After the dinner, Trump posted on Truth Social, “So I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed ‘advice.'”
“He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn’t know, the other a political person who I haven’t seen in years. I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win. Fake News went CRAZY!”, the former president added.
But the rapper, who dined last night with another of Kim Kardashian’s exes Ray J, along with Milo Yiannopoulos, has now hit back on the Timcast IRL podcast with Tim Pool, saying, “I would have never wanted to do anything that hurt Trump.
“I’m on Trump’s side. Trump said things that hurt me. He lied about me, but I mean, he’s known for lying.
“I went into the trenches for Trump … There is no one in my position that wore that hat.”
Many senior Republicans, including ex-vice president Mike Pence, said it was ‘wrong’ of Trump to invite West and Fuentes to dinner.
“President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and Holocaust denier, a seat at the table and I think he should apologize for it,’ Pence said in an interview with NewsNation that aired last night. ‘And he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric without qualification.”
But Pence also defended his former running mate – who he had a falling out with after he refused to overturn the 2020 election results when he chaired the joint session of Congress on January 6.
“With that being said, as I point out in the book as well, I don’t believe Donald Trump is an Anti-Semite. I don’t believe he’s a racist or a bigot. I would not have been his vice president if he was,” Pence continued.
He pointed out how Trump’s daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism when she married Jared Kushner, and that their three children are Jewish.
“His grandchildren are Jewish,” Pence said of Trump.
Pence indicated that he believed the ‘broad brush of attack that media leveled at him’ was unfair.
“But I think the president demonstrated profoundly poor judgment in giving those individuals a seat at the table and as I said, I think he should apologize for it. He should denounce them without qualification,” Pence added.
