Last night, Kanye West‘s “Drink Champs” podcast interview was released, and it was definitely attention-grabbing for sure. Ye spoke on his ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian, his former G.O.O.D. Music artists Big Sean and John Legend, and even his support for Donald Trump.
Kanye West Still Supports Donald Trump
One of the surprising segments that is coming from this new Kanye Drink Champs interview, is that he is still supporting former US President, Donald Trump. Back in 2018, Kanye was constantly seen wearing the notorious red Trump “MAGA” hats, and that caused a lot of people to cancel him, due to the questionable things that Trump believes in.
Ye eventually met with Trump at the White House, and has since become a supporter of him. That is still standing to this day, as in this Drink Champs interview, Ye says that he still has this red Trump MAGA hat, and still wears it, as well. This was revealed after being asked if Ye spoke to Joe Biden or Trump, during the 2020 presidential election.
“You know, it was really hard for me to get in contact with both of them. In all actuality I had to tweet at them. This was after I had the red hat, but I still have the red hat on today. I still got a red hat on today I’ll let y’all know that. I might not got it on but I’ll let y’all know where I stand.”
“I’ve still got a red hat on today.”

Kanye Ran Unsuccessful Presidential Campaign, In 2020
While Joe Biden went on to comfortably defeat Trump in the 2020 presidential election, Kanye also made headlines, for also being a candidate. He ended up receiving over 60,000 votes, and many voters were criticized, due to them wasting their votes, on a candidate like Ye.
Kanye initially announced his presidency on the Fourth of July, and had some issues doing so, at first. This was due to missing deadlines to register as a presidential candidate, in many states. Ye went on to fix these issues in some states, but in others, his name was removed. This was due to Kanye reporting having invalid signatures, that would’ve gotten him on ballots.
When the November 2020 election came, and Ye saw his results, he immediately started looking forward to 2024, in a tweet. The photo he posted, was his shadow, in front of the election results, in each state.
Kanye Also Claims He Still Wants To Be With Kim Kardashian
Kanye is also trending heavily this year, due to his ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian. This was announced in January, and Kim ended up filing the paperwork in mid-February. She also recently received their Hidden Hills home, in a $20 million buyout. In Kanye’s Drink Champs interview though, he claimed that he’s never seen the divorce paperwork, and still wants to be with Kim.
“SNL making my wife say ‘I divorced him’ on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off. And I ain’t never even seen the papers, we’re not even divorced. That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together.”
