During the 44th Season Premiere of Saturday Night Live, Kanye West made impromptu pro-Trump comments which garnered a round of boos from the audience.  After performing "Ghost Town" and the new "We Got Love," West addressed the audience donning a custom red MAGA Hat.

Comedian Chris Rock captured segments of West's remarks via his Instagram stories after NBC cut the public broadcast short. “The blacks want always Democrats … you know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare… does anybody know about that?" West said.

"That’s a Democratic plan," he continued. “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.” In the additional footage captured below, West speaks on his 2020 presidential candidacy, being bullied and coming out of the "sunken place."

Following his appearance, West shared a picture of himself in said MAGA hat on Twitter, writing, “This represents good and America becoming whole again." Adding, “We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”

He followed up with a tweet that revealed his visit to TMZ on Monday. In May, West took to the publication's headquarters where he announced that "slavery was a choice."

Prior to his appearance on 'SNL,' West announced he now wants to be called "Ye."
