Unlike the internet, ASAP Ferg isn’t mad about the Kanye West and Donald Trump meeting. In fact, he insists it was the right thing to do.
On Tuesday morning, West visited Trump Tower to reportedly discuss “life,” “'multicultural issues,” and Chicago violence with the president-elect. The news, though unsurprising, upset a good chunk of the Twittershpere, with many claiming it was a stunt to distract from several Trump controversies: The recent allegations that Russia interfered with the presidential election and Trump’s decision to name Exxon Mobile CEO Rex Tillerson as the Secretary of State. A number of people also condemned West for continuing a supposed friendship with Trump, who has been accused of racism and bigotry throughout the presidential race; however, Ferg isn’t one of those critics.
Hours after the meeting took place, Ferg went to Twitter to share his thoughts on the matter, explaining it was a “smart” move for West.
During a Saint Pablo show in November, West announced he did not vote in the 2016 presidential election, but if he had, he would've voted for Trump. Days after the controversial statement, West was admitted into UCLA Medical Center for observation; one source said he was hospitalized for "exhaustion," while another claimed he had suffered a "mental breakdown."
