“Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me and that really lifted my- Kanye West has some real power!” Trump said.
Kanye has met the President before and has occasionally taken to Twitter, where he has more than 28 million followers, to voice support for him, while the U.S. leader has praised him back online. He talked about his support for Trump in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month.
“He’s got a good wife too, in Kim, I’ll tell ya. She really is,” Trump continued in his speech on Friday.
