West was speechless, however, when Kimmel asked him if he thought Mr Trump cared about black people.

"I'll murder these n**gas on that lyrical shit/ Mayonnaise colored Benz, I push Miracle Whips/ I copped a new set of rims, nubuck Timmies/ I wear a size 12, my vehicle wear 20s/Momma, why they won't just let me live my life?" That's what makes us individuals.

Kardashian West visited the White House earlier this year to urge Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson.

The late-night host then transitioned to this: "You so famously and so powerfully said, 'George [W.] Bush doesn't care about black people.' It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does or any people at all".

But the jokes stopped when West brought up the backlash he faced when he threw his support behind Trump a few months ago.

When Kimmel joked that "all people need to do is get on TV", West responded with a serious answer.
