Kanye West said that if he did vote in this election, he would've cast his ballot for Donald Trump.

Speaking to the crowd last night at his show in San Jose, California, West said he admired Trump's campaign, and event though he didn't vote this time around, he "would've voted for Trump."

"Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, OK? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much," he said, continuing to compliment Trump's "genius" rhetorical style. "There's nonpolitical methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic. And that style, and that method of communication, has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication -- and I fuck with that."

He later added that, "Sometimes things that you might think are bad need to happen, in order for change to fucking happen. Sometimes you might have to not get your way to really understand what to do in the future."

West also mentioned his rumored 2020 presidential campaign, saying he would use the same model as Trump.
