Supporters of President Trump, when confronted with accusations of racism within their Commander in Chief, often cite his support from Kanye West as a surefire sign that President Trump couldn’t be a bigot. After all, the two have partnered on several criminal reform projects that have been lauded by the right and left alike.
But now there seems to be an issue, as West begins to claim that his support from Trump was all some sort of Andy Kaufman-esque ruse to have his cake and eat it too.
First, there’s his poignant donation.
Music and fashion mogul Kanye West has stepped up with a $2 million donation to support George Floyd’s family members, as well as those of Ahmaud Arbrery, and Breonna Taylor and businesses.
The fund will include a 529 education plan to cover college tuition for George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna Floyd. West’s fund is also set to help pay legal fees for the Arbery and Taylor families, as well as black-owned businesses in Chicago and other cities, Fox 10 reported. Arbery was shot to death near Brunswick, GA., in February. Three white men have been arrested and charged. The FBI is investigating the death of Taylor, a Kentucky EMT, who was shot and killed in March after three officers forced their way into her Apartment.
But there’s more…
