"Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH", Trump said in a tweet from his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf course Friday evening.

A number of people believed West had been stumped by a particular question having to do with one US President Donald Trump. "'Clark, let that new "XTCY" joint go!'" he tweeted along with a WeTransfer download link, later retweeted by West himself, according to Pitchfork.

Kimmel asked the rapper if he thought Trump cared about black people or indeed "any people at all", during his Thursday-night appearance.

On Twitter, West explained "The question was so important I took time to think".

He still hasn't answered Kimmel's question.

West has maintained his vocal support for Trump since the 2016 presidential election. "That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation". The sisters get a mention in the song's semi-pornographic lyrics: "You got sick thoughts?"

In this December 13, 2016, file photo, then-President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for a picture in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY. We are all left to wonder why Kimmel and his staff didn't let Kanye answer the question, and instead opted to edit the interview to make it look like Kanye was stumped.

The father-of-three went on to address his now infamous TMZ Live interview from May in which he said slavery "sounds like a choice".

"Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things - you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. I got four of them", the husband of Kim Kardashian raps in the first verse.

Tatum praised West on "Fox & Friends" for not backing away from his Trump support.
