West - who stirred controversy earlier his year when he praised Trump for his "dragon energy", called him his "brother" and shared a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat - said he had previously been afraid to endorse Trump.

Here are a few interesting takes from the 20-minute-plus "Jimmy Kimmel Live" interview which can be seen on YouTube.

Rapper Kayne West described what it was like for him to be a supporter of President Trump in Hollywood Thursday night, but struggled to answer why he believed Mr. Trump cared about black people.

"Sorry, I know you guys wanted to clap, but everything I say is gonna be fantastic", is something Kanye West said during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday.

"It represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said", West said.

But there was one moment of the interview when the loquacious hip-hop superstar clammed up, and that was during a discussion of West's support for Trump. At one point during the long interview, West went on a tear about why he supports the president. "That's what makes Ye".

That comment even put Kimmel on alert that West might still be experiencing some mental health issues that he's previous talked about.

"She's super passionate about it, and it was wonderful for her to see that dream come true", said West. Kimmel then asked a rather awkward question: "Were you ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?" We never approached taking a medication.

"I knew I wanted to stay in a calm state because by the time I got to TMZ, I was ramped up", he went on. "And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's", West said.
