And he’s back.

Kanye West started his new year off by clearing up any doubts about where he stands on supporting President Donald Trump.

A few short months after announcing he was “distancing” himself from politics, the rap star took to Twitter in a series of declarations about the president, his faith and politics.

“Trump all day,” West tweeted on Tuesday afternoon, following that with another tweet of emoji dragons.

“They will not program me,” West continued his tweetstorm. “Blacks are 90% Democrats That sounds like control to me.”

He also tweeted about “what the Trump hat represents,” referring to the red “Make America Great Again” hat that he told Trump in the Oval Office meeting “made me feel like Superman.”

West’s tweets on the first day of the year seemed to put an end to his announced departure from politics following October’s meeting with the president. The outspoken Trump fan had spent time in the Oval Office speaking on a wide range of issues, and sparking a collective gasp for using profanity.

But shortly after the meeting, the rapper who is married to reality-TV star Kim Kardashian, his 29 million Twitter followers: “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in.”

“I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative,” he declared.

His announcement came as he took issue with conservative activist Candace Owens claiming that he had designed the “Blexit” logo and supported the movement about the mass exodus of blacks from the Democrat Party.

In Tuesday’s tweetstorm, the 41-year-old Grammy Award-winning artist simply stated “2024” in one tweet – likely referring to that year’s presidential election – and declared that “God is on my side” in another.

He also gave his followers some advice for the new year.

West added that he had done an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan which would be released soon.

While there were some on Twitter who predictably slammed West for his support of the president, many tipped their hat to the rapper for speaking up for what he believes.
