Washington D.C.: Kanye West, who has been vocal about his support for US President Donald Trump, delivered a pro-Trump speech on the premiere of the 44th season of 'Saturday Night Live'. Despite his speech not being aired, the 41-year-old received applauds from Trump.

''Like many, I don`t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told "no"), was great. He`s leading the charge!'' tweeted Trump.

West gave the lengthy speech about his support of Trump wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) cap. "There are so many times I talked to a white person about this and they`re like, `How can you like Trump, he`s racist?' Well, if I was concerned about racism I would have moved out of America a long time ago', West said to the crowd," he said.

"You`ve got a situation where you need to have a dialogue and not a diatribe...It`s easy to make it seem like it`s so, so, so one-sided," West said in his speech. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rapper received 'several claps and a number of boos' for his rant.
