"I love when people have their own ideas," he tweeted. "You don't have to be allowed anymore. Just be. Love who you want to love. That's free thought. I'm not even political. I'm not a democrat or a republican."
Regardless of his political affiliation, Chance appeared to support his friend’s tweets.
"Talked to him two days ago. He's in a great space and not affected by folk tryna question his mental or physical health," Chance tweeted, according to The Washington Post. "Black people don't have to be democrats."
Chance’s tweet was met with more criticism from fans who had a problem with West, a black rapper, supporting Trump, who has put in place policies that many argue disproportionately affect people of color and the LGBTQ community. Both are groups West has expressed support for in the past.
Trump, for his part, was appreciative of West's tweets.
West may clarify his support for Trump and his other tweets in an upcoming interview with radio personality Charlamagne tha God. The date for the interview has not been announced.
