John Legend Thinks Kanye West’s Photo-Op With Donald Trump Was A Publicity Stunt

That's an understatement.

Legend, who just released his album Darkness & Light, opened up about Kanye's head-scratching meeting with Donald Trump, labeling the moment a publicity stunt and is left "disappointed."

“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to [Trump] about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt," Legend said.

For the first time in several months, Kanye logged onto Twitter to explain his reasoning behind the encounter. “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” he said. These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”

He added: “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

He also threw in "#2024" at the end, as if to suggest he'll run for President then.

Legend, like the rest of us, was disheartened.

“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country,” Legend continued.

“I think the things he has promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing.”

He added: “Whatever’s in his mind, I disagree with him.”
