Trump makes his admiration public.
President Donald Trump has been rocking with Kanye West for a minute. He has also had the opportunity to spend some time with the rapper's wife. In his latest speech, the president had some edifying words for Kim Kardashian.
First, Trump addressed Yeezy. He acknowledged how his success has been boosted thanks to the music icon.
“All of a sudden those numbers started going up, up, up, and we did great,” Trump explained. “Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me. And that really lifted my [numbers] Kanye West has some real power!"
Then, the praise was directed to the female party of the West couple. Trump insisted upon just how good of a spouse Kim is.
“And he’s got a good wife too in Kim, I’ll tell ya. She really is. She did a great thing, a great thing.”
The "great thing" the president mentioned isn't clarified. It could involve anything from her building a whole empire on the foundation of an infamous sex tape to her meeting with the president about prison reform. Or maybe he just meant that her choosing Ye as a husband was a good call. Who knows? Trump quickly changed the subject.
This praise is significant considering the fact that the speech completely ignored the John McCain in the wake of his death.
