Kanye West took to Twitter on New Year's Day to make it clear where he stands politically in 2019.

"Trump all day," he wrote, followed by dragon emojis -- likely calling back to tweets from April in which he said he and Donald Trump share "dragon energy," which he defined as "natural born leaders," "very instinctive" and "great foresight."

"They will not program me. Blacks are 90% Democrats," West tweeted. "That sounds like control to me."

"One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black," he said. "From now on I’m performing with my mutherfucking hat on."

The rapper also shared brief thoughts about changing the world and having free thought, and he tweeted "2024," in reference to a future presidential election. (He's previously discussed his intentions to run for president that year.)

"Love everyone," West tweeted -- and, for good measure, in a separate message he added, "I love Drake 2019 we will all heal."
