Kanye West took his support for President Donald Trump to the next level over the weekend.

On Saturday, the outspoken 41-year-old rapper revealed he has designed t-shirts that read “Blexit” and strive to convince African-American Democrats to abandon the party.

The shirts were reportedly unveiled Saturday at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit, a conference of young, African-American conservatives in Washington, D.C.

“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,” said the group’s spokeswoman Candace Owens, according to Page Six. 

Another version of the shirts — which come in three different colors and cost between $25 and $28 — reportedly includes the phrase “We Free.”


“BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy,” reads a post about the shirts on their website. “It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear.”

Earlier this month, West famously met with Trump in the Oval Office in an encounter that was highly publicized and mocked by many late-night comedy shows. West wore his red “Make America Great Again” hat for the meeting, something he said made him feel “like Superman.”

West also criticized Democrats in an off-the-air rant on Saturday Night Live last month after serving as the musical guest for the show’s season premiere.

There was a wide range of reactions on social media to West’s new fashion venture:
