John Legend Claims Kanye West’s Meeting With Donald Trump Was a Publicity Stunt
"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," Legend says in the above clip. "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. 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."
The French reporter follows up by asking, "Do you think that [Kanye] had other stuff in his mind?" Legend simply replies, "Whatever's in his mind, I disagree with him."
It's clear that Legend does not agree with West's actions as of late. Of course, these two have collaborated on a number of songs over the years, including "Used to Love U," "Blame Game," "Christian Dior Denim Flow," "They Say," "Number One," "One Man Can Change the World" and more.
John Legend isn't the only major artist who reacted to the news of Kanye's meeting with Trump. West Coast rapper YG, who famously made the anti-Trump song "FDT," made his opinion clear on Twitter with a bunch of furious-faced emojis.
Meanwhile, A$AP Ferg had a completely different reaction. The A$AP Mob member took to Twitter and wrote, “I think @kanyewest was right today for meeting up with trump !!! You need to know where this man head is at !!! He rules your nation. I think @kanyewest is smarter than we think he is, he’s getting closer to trump so he can get more insight on his plans!!!"
