Trump did not, however, criticize West in his interview with Hannity and maintained that he thinks West will support him in his reelection bid. 

“[He’s a] very good guy. He is a person that I get along with very well,” Trump said. “At the end I think he would support us over anyone else, we have to stop the radical left from taking over our country.” 

West tweeted last week that he would be running for president in November’s election, despite having missed the filing deadline to get on the ballot in most states. 

The rapper told Forbes he thinks he can argue that he should be allowed extra time due the coronavirus pandemic.
