Kanye West just can't stop tweeting, and this time, the president is involved. Welcome to 2018, everyone.

West recently returned (opens in new tab) to Twitter and he doesn't seem to be holding anything back, including sharing his support for Trump and posting a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

Despite the backlash, West posted another photo of the hat, showing off Donald Trump's signature on the front. He also shared that Peter Theil had reached out to him for a meeting. He also recently retweeted various videos (opens in new tab) by conservative cartoonist Scott Adams.

Trump may have liked the rapper's tweets, but many fans of Kanye did not—and they didn't hold back when it came to photos of the hat and Trump's response.
