GOP presidential candidate Donald TrumpDonald TrumpOhio Republican who voted to impeach Trump says he won't seek reelection Youngkin breaks with Trump on whether Democrats will cheat in the Virginia governor's race Trump endorses challenger in Michigan AG race MORE’s list of friends who are famous rappers is growing: P. Diddy is the latest to count himself among them.
“Donald Trump is a friend of mine, and he works very hard,” the “Last Night” rapper and record label founder says in an interview published Friday in The Washington Post.
But Diddy (who was born Sean Combs) says Trump is just one good example of a high-profile businessman.
“Donald Trump is not the only person who is a model mogul. That doesn’t need to be, like, the only picture of what an American mogul looks like.”
Diddy isn’t the only entertainer Trump has in his friend zone. The former reality TV personality told “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon in an interview last month that he and Kanye West are practically buddies.
“Kanye has been so nice to me,” Trump said of West, who announced last month that he intended to make a White House in 2020.
Saying he knows the “Yeezus” rapper “a little bit” and calling him “a much better person than some people would think,” Trump added, “He always says great things about me, so I love Kanye.”
Trump, 69, claimed in a September news conference that West “goes around saying 'Trump is my all-time hero.'”
The White House hopeful also heaped praise on another rapper in an interview earlier this year with The Hill.
While playing Mac Miller’s song called “Donald Trump” on the computer, Trump winked and pointed his finger, calling it a “great song.”
