Kanye West Backtracks From Controversial Tweets — 'I Haven't Done Enough Research'
After Kanye West went on an epic Twitter rant, during which he endorsed President Donald Trump and the "Make America Great Again" movement, he's now backtracking on a lot of things he said. Click through to find out what he regrets!
"I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one," Kanye tweeted today. "I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought."
He then went on to promote his new song, "with a verse that will bring Ebro the closure he's been seeking," the rapper tweeted.
Kanye previously tweeted that he supported Trump and that his "MAGA hat is signed." The president even retweeted the rapper. Yeezy's outburst online followed a breakdown he had in the studio. He also abruptly fired his manager, Scooter Braun.

Ye's friend John Legend tried to reason with Kanye, and asked him to reconsider aligning with Trump, but the "Jesus Walks" rapper refused, accusing him of trying to "manipulate" his free thought.
Now it sounds like Kanye is rethinking his position on things. While he said he wasn't a "conservative," he didn't expand much further. His wife Kim Kardashian has been trying to get through to him, tweeting support for him on twitter. "He never said he agrees with Trump's politics," she wrote.
