However, US-netizens questioned the decision and expressed anger at West as he may help get Trump re-elected by ‘pulling away’ votes from Joe Biden.
Do you guys think this is all a joke? That potentially pulling votes away from the only nominee who can defeat Donald Trump is cute or funny? This is the height of privilege, ultimately it won’t hurt you, you’re wealthy enough to survive 4 more years of Trump! Come the fuck on!

This is a ploy by Kanye to get Trump re-elected, Do NOT fall for it!!!! This is just to steal votes from Biden which only helps Trump

I know that Melania has lowered the bar for First Lady but I don’t think Kim can slither under it.
