UPDATE: Someone has compiled Kanye's speeches on politics and racism from the show into one video. Watch above.
Taking the stage in California during the second leg of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West spoke about Donald Trump's election win for the first time on Thursday night.
Speaking for nearly 25 minutes (according to some fans), Kanye expressed his dissatisfaction with American politics and spoke approvingly of Donald Trump's campaign. Even though he admitted that he didn't vote, he said, "If I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump."
The crowd responded with boos, but that didn't slow him down (even though he later admitted that his management team warned him against telling anyone this). According to several Twitter users, West continued to call out the media and said that the internet might be "tampered with." He explained that he enjoyed Trump's style and was entertained by the debates.
"Rappers are philosophers of our now," he continued. "Celebrities are the influencers of our now, just look at the president, he wasn't in politics and won."
After admitting that he wanted to vote for Trump, West did clarify, "That don't mean that I don't think that black lives matter. That don't mean that I don't believe in women's rights. That don't mean that I don't mean in gay marriage. That don't mean that I don't believe in these things because that's the guy that I wanted to vote for."
"Not one or the other candidate was going to instantly be able to change [racism] because of their views," he said at the end of the show after telling fans: "Stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay? Lets stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It's just a fucking fact. We are in a racist country. Period."
He also confirmed his plans of running for president in 2020 by referring to a political model "that [he'll] take when [he] runs in 2020."
Watch video clips and tweets about his speech above and below. We'll update this post when more complete video becomes available.
