    The rapper suggested that he now intends to perform while wearing his MAGA hat, and that one of the thing he likes most about the piece of headwear is that people can’t tell him what to do because he is black.

    About two months after he announced his intention to distance himself from politics, American rap star Kanye West has once again declared his support for US President Donald Trump via social media.

    "Trump all day," the celebrity tweeted on January 1, adding in a follow-up post that he wanted to make it clear where his sympathies lie.

    Ye further stated that from now on, he intends to perform in his "mutherf*cking hat" – an apparent reference to his Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat – and that one of the thing he likes most about the piece of headwear is that people can’t tell him what to do because he is black.

    Many Twitter users however appeared unamused by the rapper’s declaration and didn’t wait long to voice their opinion.

    Some, however, chose to praise the rapper.

    And, another tweet, which simply reads “2024”, left a number of people wondering whether Ye harbours presidential ambitions.
