Rapper Kanye West, who has been open about his support for the current sitting president, is now using merchandise to help encourage black Americans to leave the Democratic Party.
The artist designed a series of "Blexit" ("black exit") merchandise that was revealed at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.
West himself was not at the event, but Turning Point's communications director, Candace Owens, who has grown friendly with West, praised him for it there.
"Blexit is a renaissance, and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West," Owens is quoted as saying the D.C. summit.
West "has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have," Owens said, according to LifeZette.
