The two talked about a range of issues, from Kanye’s love for President Donald Trump to mental health. “Just as a musician, African American, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me that I couldn’t say that I like Trump,” Kanye remarked. Kimmel later brought up Trump’s immigration policy and particularly the separation of children from their parents. “There are families being torn apart at the border of this country. There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing […] We cannot forget that. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter,” he said. Things got quiet and Kimmel cut to commercial break. Speaking on his 2016 hospitalization, Kanye said that the experience made him lose “his confidence.”
