Trump went on to say that he has a strong personal relationship with Ye.
“Well, I haven’t really seen the statements. I did watch the Tucker Carlson interview and he was really nice to me beyond anybody. He was great to me and he was great really, to the MAGA movement which was very impressive,” Trump said. “I think that you know. I was, I was certainly very, you know, what I’m talking about.
