Rapper Kanye West, an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, has announced he is quitting politics after being ‘used to spread messages I don’t believe in’ and denounced the president over his immigration policy.The singer made the surprising declaration on Twitter on Tuesday. ‘My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!,’ he wrote. In an extended Twitter rant, he criticised Trump’s immigration policy, denounced the ‘blexit’ movement, and thanked his family. I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable. I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war,’ the rapper wrote.He also denounced the ‘blexit’ movement – black people leaving the Democratic Party – and its conservative founder Candace Owens. West said even though his name was used he ‘never wanted any association’ and has ‘nothing to do with it.’ ‘I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it,’ he tweeted.Owens has urged Black voters to leave Democrats as part of her ‘blexit’ campaign. ‘Blexit is a Renaissance,’ Owens told Fox News on Monday. ‘Blexit is the black exit from the Democratic Party. It’s the black exit from permanent victimhood, the black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.’ Her movement got national attention after she said West helped her design its logo. ‘Kanye saw my original design, and said, ‘I can do it better,’ Owens said. ‘It certainly was. He redesigned the logo with vibrant colors inspired by his trip to Uganda.’Photo Credit: Getty
