Rapper Kanye West showed President Donald Trump some love once more prompting an appreciative tweet from the Commander-In-Chief.

West returned as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday where he reiterated anew his support for Trump, especially with the host’s insinuation that he could just be trying to appear conservative to stir publicity and attention for his latest album.

The Chicago rapper doubled down on his support for Trump. The celebrity told Kimmel: “Just as a musician, African-American, a guy living out in Hollywood, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. And then told me every time that I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say that out loud or my career would be over. It took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat, no matter what the consequences.”

Kimmel tried to corner West and asked a complex question by bringing up the recent family separations at the border and asking: “You famously said George Bush doesn’t care about black people, it makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?”

West refused to take the bait and opted to ignore the question, and not give an answer at all, forcing Kimmel to cut to a commercial break.

The expression of support did not escape Trump’s attention, and he even showed his appreciation with a tweet especially dedicated to his rapper-supporter. Trump posted: “Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH. One new and great FACT - African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!”

Trump’s appreciation tweet to West comes hours after he ranted against NFL players. In contrast to his message for West, Trump didn’t hold back in slamming the athletes and urging that they are suspended without pay for refusing to stand up for the anthem.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love……</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1027892043908046849?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 10, 2018</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">…..Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!</p>&mdash; Donald J.

People don't give a crap about nfl players political views, that's not at all why they watch or use to anyway! I'm a vet and I'll never support or watch any sport where the players don't respect their countries anthem! They need to just stay on their damn knees until they have no job, if you could call it that left! BOYCOTT THE NFL RIGHT OUT OF EXISTENCE!
