    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US President Donald Trump has expressed hope that famous rapper Kanye West, who had earlier announced plans to run for president, would support him in the race.

    "I like his voice being heard but he has always been for us, he is going to be with us and his wife [Kim Kardashian West] is going to be with us ... He is a very good guy, a person that I get along with very well, and in the end, I think he will support us", Trump told Fox News late Thursday.

    Last week, West surprisingly voiced his intention to enter the presidential race, just five months before the November 3rd election. West also posted a video, showing him registering to vote, and explaining it is an easy procedure.

    ​The rapper previously expressed support for Trump and met the president in the Oval Office in October 2018. West has also reportedly worked on prison reform with his wife.
