FACT CHECK: Did John Legend End His Friendship With Kanye West With Trump Support?

Former President Donald Trump and Kanye West’s support for the 2020 White House bid cut John Legend’s connection.

“Because we didn’t openly agree on his running for government and supporting Trump,” Legend could no longer give a “green light” to the friendship.

On CNN’s “The Ax Files” podcast, singer-songwriter David Axelrod admitted that “we’re not as friends as we used to be.”

West gave a lot of support during Trump’s presidency, including wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and visiting the White House.

According to Hill, the rapper declared his 2020 presidential campaign on Twitter in the name of a birthday party and said he would lead American politics by believing in God.

West didn’t appreciate the lack of encouragement she received from loved ones during her campaign.

According to Legend, for reasonable reasons, I did not support his candidacy for president of the United States, and he was outraged about it.

John Legend could no longer enjoy the political turmoil of the West.

Brotherhood struggled for him. He honestly said, “I think it’s too hard to keep a friendship.”

“For example, he was really honest about his opinions, his difficulties and everything he was going through. And with him, I believe you can get pretty much what you see.” Legend spoke of his old friend.

The father of two believes Kanye has grown “too much” for him since he announced his run for president in 2020.

Legend admitted on CNN’s “The Ax Files” podcast with David Axelrod that they weren’t “friends as before.”

We openly clashed with him running for office and supporting Trump, Legend continued.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, the “All of Me” singer gave public speeches and took the stage at the inauguration, actively supporting President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The father of two has a third child on the way with his wife Chrissy Teigen. She is often in trouble.

The artist has no plans to enter politics right away, but is actively expressing her political opinions.

I am not interested in running for office. Undoubtedly, I don’t want to do it now. “I don’t think I want to do it in the future,” he said.
