LOS ANGELES — Kanye West was silent when it comes to whether he thinks President Donald Trump cares for black people.

West appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live " on Thursday.

West discussed his support for Trump and questioned why people go after the president instead of trying "love."

Kimmel pointed to the policy that separated immigrant families and asked: "You've so famously and so powerfully said 'George Bush doesn't care about black people,' it makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?"

Kanye considered the question without answering before Kimmel took a commercial break.

Kimmel earlier asked West if he was worried about his wife, Kim Kardashian West, being alone with the president in the Oval Office. The rapper replied Trump "is a player."
