Amber Rose: Trump ‘is Kanye in a White Man’s Body…They Have the Same Personality’

Kanye West‘s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose says the rapper’s love of President Donald Trump stems from the fact that they are basically the same person.

The model gave an interview to The Fallen State last week, and was asked about Yeezy’s recent pro-Trump statements and remarks about slavery being a “choice” for African Americans. In terms of why West is drawn to Trump, Rose explained “When I first seen Trump on the podium and just kind of like running for president, I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is Kanye in a white man’s body.’”

“I really felt like they have the same personality. Like, completely the same personality…I would like to think that…Kanye met with Trump, and Trump said, ‘Look, I seen these people, I knew they were gonna vote for me and I used them to get elected and I can’t tell nobody that because I want to get a second term, but now that I’m in office I really want to make a change.'”

Rose continued to say that West can’t “snitch” on Trump now because “he can’t snitch on himself. Maybe he’s thinking of the greater good of what Trump can do for the country.”

The actress also opined that West likes Trump because of his personal style, rather than any substantial political belief.

“I think that he appreciates the politics that Trump used in order to get in office, ’cause Trump was a Democrat for like 30 years I heard, or something like that. So I could only hope that Trump kind of used the white people, seemingly like racist white people, to get in office maybe for the greater good. I don’t know. I think he’s a sexual predator. I feel bad for Melania. I want her to get a divorce and become an activist, but that’s what I can only assume.”
