Kanye West says he is "distancing" from politics.

On Twitter, the rapper says he is being "used to spread messages that I do not believe in."

He has been a vocal supporter of President Trump, but this decision seems to focus on a campaign to which he was linked, known as Blexit.

Led by conservative commentator Candace Owens, he encourages black Americans to renounce the Democratic party.

He said the musician had designed clothes for the campaign, something that the rapper has now denied.

The rapper tweeted: "My eyes are now wide open, I'm moving away from politics and I'm focusing completely on being creative."

It seems that Kanye West intends to move away from politics altogether now.

Writing to his 28.7 million followers, the musician said: "I support the creation of jobs and opportunities for the people who need them most.

"I support the reform of the prison, I support the laws of common sense weapons that will make our world safer".

"I support those who risk their lives to serve us and protect us, and I support that people who misuse their power are responsible."

Kanye West used one of the Trump hats "Make America Great Again" on Saturday Night Live

It is not the first time that the rapper, who wants to be called Ye, has had to clarify his political beliefs.

Earlier this year he was criticized for saying that Amendment 13 of the United States Constitution, which put an end to slavery, should be abolished, a statement he then clarified. Apparently he wanted to write "amend".

And his performance on the American comedy show Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago provoked outrage and fun in equal measure.

The 49-year-old, who is married to Kim Kardashian, wore a hat with Donald Trump's slogan "Make America big again" and apparently gave a rant without scripts to support the president.

The extracts filmed by the audience and shared on social networks show the rapper who discusses his support for President Trump, his promise to run for president in 2020 and the need for a "dialogue not a diatribe."

"So many times I talk to a white person and [they] Say: & # 39; How would you like Trump, is it racist? & # 39; ", He said.

"Well, if I was worried about racism, I would have moved from the United States a long time ago."
