Kanye West who has recently changed his name to ‘Ye’ went on a pro-Trump rant after he performed his song “Ghost Town” on SNL saying
“The blacks want always Democrats…you know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare…does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” West said. “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
adding, “we need to have a dialogue, not a diatribe.”
Comedian Chris Rock, who was in attendance, posted an Instagram Story after the show with video snippets of West’s meandering speech.

In another clip, the only part that was clear was the audience booing and Rock laughing and whispering “Oh, my God” as he recorded; West then hinted again that he was running for president in 2020.
Mike Dean, a record producer for West, later posted what appeared to be more video of the rapper’s unaired speech.
