Kanye West is apologizing for his comments about slavery being a choice.
The rapper spoke to 107.5 WGCI Chicago on Wednesday about his remarks and opened up about how President Donald Trump views Black people, according to The Fader.
West said he was silent when asked by Jimmy Kimmel about his support for Trump because he was thinking about what he would say.

“I feel that [Trump] cares about the way Black people feel about him, and he would like for Black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs,” said West. “He will do the things that are necessary to make that happen because he’s got an ego like all the rest of us, and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the Black community. So, it’s something he’s gonna work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”
