Of course Donald Trump wants to weigh in on Kanye West‘s odd VMA announcement…
Because presidential rumors have been flying, a market research firm even got a head start on polling for West’s 2020 bid, and found that Trump would beat West in a hypothetical election held today, according to Rolling Stone. You know, because this kind of thing is definitely worth our time to think about.
Rolling Stone also had a chance to ask his what he thought of Yeezy 4 Prez at the Trump Tower Tuesday. It turns out Trump is a big Kanye fan (these days, at least), and believes the feeling is mutual:
“He’s said very nice things about me in the past… extremely positive things,” said the candidate, noting that he doesn’t “quite get” the comparisons between the two of them.
He also thinks he might’ve inspired West: “I was actually watching, I saw him [announce his candidacy on the VMAs], and I said, ‘That’s very interesting. I wonder who gave him that idea?'”
“He’s actually a different kind of person than people think. He’s a nice guy,” Trump said of West. “I hope to run against him someday.”
