Ahead of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, Kanye West publicly expressed support for Donald Trump but Kim Kardashian stayed out of politics – for personal reasons – although she recently found a way to the president’s heart by other means.

Kim first visited the White House on behalf of Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old who got a life sentence for a non-violent drug offence, which was also her first run-in with the law.
The KUWTK star eventually got a positive result from Trump. However, this huge success from a humanitarian case she resolutely pursued, earned her a muted ovation.
Despite Mr. President’s scandals, social media gaffes and huge backlash from political opponents and disgruntled Americans, Kim says he is playing his cards – not perfectly though.
The 37-year-old reality TV star recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for an explosive discussion about Donald Trump. Eventually, Kimmel and Kimye delved into Kanye West’s opinion of Trump and she noted that there is nothing “defaming” to say about the U.S. President.
Despite the alleged pain and suffering he [Trump] has inflicted on people, particularly immigrant children and parents, Kim insisted that he has not performed “so badly” as a U.S. president. Nothing was said of xenophobia, racism, sexual misconduct, or Russia’s meddling in America’s election.
The climax of that unpredictable discussion on Jimmy Kimmel Live! came when the host asked about Kanye’s unwavering love for Trump. The question attracted uncontrollable laughter shortly before she replied, ‘Yeah—I think he really—um–yeah.”
In her awkward response, Kim clarified that Kanye does not always agree with Trump’s policies.

‘…He [Kanye] likes the President’s personality, especially how he [Trump] beat the odds during the heated 2016 presidential elections when everyone underestimated him.’
The mother-of-three described Kanye as “apolitical” and revealed he does not really enjoy digging deep into what goes on in government circles.
Well said. The rapper’s lack of interest in “digging into details” explains a lot. He’s so glued to music.
