Kanye West told a crowd that if he had voted, he would have voted for Trump at a San Jose concert Thursday night. Concert-goers responded with boos. Yeezy ranted for almost half an hour, commented that black people need to "stop focusing on racism," and said (again) that he was going to run for president in 2020.

“I told you all I didn’t vote right? … But if I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump,”Kanye said.  Twitter users had mixed reactions Friday when the news spread about Kanye's statements. Most were left rethinking their 2020 Kanye vote.
