John Legend Speaks On Kanye West Meeting With Donald Trump

“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt,” the “Love Me Now” singer, 37, told reports in a new interview while talking about West’s Monday, December 12, meeting with the controversial businessman.
“I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country,” Legend told Clique. “I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing. Whatever’s in his mind, I disagree with him.”

The singer then expressed his disappointment for West’s earlier comments — pre-mental breakdown — in which the rapper stated that he would have voted for Trump in the general elections.
“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country,” the singer, who has been a vocal protester of many of the president-elect’s policies, said.
While others have reacted similarly to West’s disturbingly new “friendship,” A$AP Ferg seems to be holding on to the hope that the old Ye is still somewhere deeply embedded in the new, blonde version of the hip hop icon.
Ferg took to Twitter yesterday (Dec. 14), to suggest that Yeezy’s meeting was “strategic” and something big was in the works.
According to the “Famous” rapper, he went to the Trump Tower in order to keep a “direct line” to the future president so that real change could come.
If Trump and West are the new leaders of the change this country is going to see, it may really be time to see how many Americans Canada will grant full residency to.
