Twitter – In the ongoing saga of Kanye West and Twitter, the G.O.O.D. Music mastermind has now set his sights on former NFL player Colin Kaepernick. On Wednesday (October 3), YE tweeted he wants Kaepernick to have a discussion with Donald Trump.
“Reaching out to Colin Kaepernick,” he wrote. “I would like you to speak with the president to tell him your experience directly. Let’s have a dialogue not a diatribe.”

YE’s alignment with 45 has caused a slew of controversy over the past couple of years. Most recently, Kanye donned the infamous MAGA hat during his appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and went on a pro-Trump rant following the show.
Kaepernick, who has become a symbol of social justice since he first kneeled during the National Anthem, has yet to respond publicly to YE’s request.
