Hip hop icon Kanye West posted pictures of him wearing President Trump’s MAGA hat. Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again”, reverberated throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.

Kanye and record executive Lyor Cohen posed together recently. Kanye was wearing a MAGA hat, which was bound to get his fans, the media and the hip hop community stirred up. The Twitter community got its dander up, which appeared to what West wanted all along:

Kanye had taken a Twitter hiatus for over a year. He returned to Twitter in April and immediately started tweeting about Trump, his love for Trump and the republican party. Usually artists and entertainers purposely stir up controversy just before dropping an album. 50 Cent and Kanye got into a public beef prior to both dropping albums a few years ago. Kaney outsold 50 Cent, but both got great publicity and album sales.
Live Stream: Trump And The Global Economy Town Hall, May 8th At 7PM
Most of Kanye’s tweets have been on a surface level. He and Trump have “Dragon Energy” and “All blacks don’t have to be democrats.” Ralph Baker, Author of Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead, started a Trump town hall to inform people.
Trump And The Global Economy town hall is set for May 8th at 7PM in Fort Greene Brooklyn. The event will take place at South Oxford Space, 138 South Oxford Street, Brooklyn NY 11217. The town hall is a quarterly speaker series. We bring together professionals and local entrepreneurs to discuss President Trump’s policies and how they impact the local and global economy. The town hall brings the public real information on what’s going on with the economy and how it impacts them.
The May event will include Wuyi Jacobs (WBAI), John McLaughlin (pollster), economics professor Lance Brofman and Ralph Baker, author of Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead. McLaughlin did the polling for Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign and is widely-considered the top political pollster in the country. He will update us on the mid-term elections and which politicians are vulnerable during the mid-term elections.
If people want to “stunt for the ‘gram” or stunt on Twitter then they should keep doing what they’re doing. If they want to discuss real issues and how President Trump’s policies impact the economy and the community they should show up in Brooklyn on May 8th.
