Despite of all Hollywood's criticism, Donald Trump has found a friend in Kanye West.

Trump took to Twitter on Friday (Aug. 10) to thank the rapper for his undying support following West's comments on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

"Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH," the President wrote, before unveiling a new statistic. "One new and great FACT - African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!"   

When Kimmel asked West about his presidential candidate of choice, West disclosed how difficult it was to share his feelings, especially being a black man who is naturally expected to join the Democratic political party. "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," he said.

"And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over. I'd get kicked out of the black community because blacks, we are supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats and all," he continued.
