On Thursday night, West made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, about five years after he criticized the titular host for mocking him.

The two talked about a range of issues, from Kanye's support of Trump to mental health. "Just as a musician, African American, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me that I couldn't say that I like Trump," Kanye remarked. Kimmel later brought up Trump's immigration policy and particularly the separation of children from their parents. "There are families being torn apart at the border of this country. There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing [...] We cannot forget that. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter," he said. Things got quiet and Kimmel cut to commercial break. Speaking on his 2016 hospitalization, Kanye said that the experience made him lose "his confidence."

Here’s a little refresher of the what previously went down between Kimmel and Kanye: In 2013, Kimmel parodied Kanye’s BBC Radio 1 interview in which the rapper claimed to be “No. 1 rock star on the planet.”
To absolutely no one’s surprise, Ye wasn’t amused.
“JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” the rapper wrote in a series of tweets.
Shortly after the mild Twitter feud, Kanye appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he seemingly buried the hatchet. Though Ye didn’t apologize for his criticism of Kimmel, he made sure to defend his self-aggrandizing comments.
“I’m a creative genius, and there’s no other way to word it. I know you’re not supposed to say that about yourself. I say things the wrong way a lot of times, but the intention is always positive.”
