Earlier we reported that Ye was booed during his show in San Jose, California on Thursday after informing the crowd that the right man won the presidency on Nov. 8.
“I told you all I didn’t vote right? … But if I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump,” he said at the packed SAP Center to a mixed reaction.
Well, what’s going on is that West sees a little bit of himself in Trump — you know, a guy who stirs things up and gets people talking — and that’s supposedly why he’s confessed his admiration for the orange man’s presidential campaign, NOT necessarily his policies, according to TMZ.

Sources close to West told the site that his Thursday night confession about Trump was mainly about his (Trump’s) ability to start a movement via not so conventional or politically correct methods.
The source says Kanye’s a big-time believer in conflict bringing change, and thinks Trump’s campaign will spark conversation on both sides. As for the Donald Trump’s controversial comments about Mexicans and Muslims … West ain’t feeling any that madness, says the source.
And as for reports he rapped, “I hope they build the wall, I hope they get rid of them all” during the San Jose concert … those who know say it never happened and since no recording of him saying has popped up anywhere, it can only be chalked up as an Internet rumor.
