Former interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile tweeted Thursday that Kanye West has "set us back 155 years" in response to his exuberant praise of President TrumpDonald John TrumpProsecutors investigating Trump inaugural fund, pro-Trump super PAC for possible illegal foreign donations: NY Times George Conway: Why take Trump's word over prosecutors' if he 'lies about virtually everything' Federal judge says lawsuit over Trump travel ban waivers will proceed MORE while meeting at the White House.

Brazile expressed frustration with West, who has voiced skepticism of the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery, as well as told reporters in the Oval Office that "Trump is on his hero's journey right now."

Brazile's tweet was quoting a thread from NBC News's Geoff Bennett that said inaccuracies about African-Americans and welfare in West's comments perpetuate false, dangerous stereotypes. 


West has recently made several false historical statements.

In May, he said that slavery "sounds like a choice." 

In September, West claimed that there were only 800 slaves in the 1800s, while in reality there were closer to 4 million

This month, he told TMZ that he was not sure if Abraham Lincoln was really black or white.
