Trump shared with the Keeping Up With The Kardashian Star that she and her hip-hop mogul husband Kanye West were helping him boost his popularity with the African-Americans. POTUS shared the information with Kim at the Oval Table, and it was revealed by two sources who are very familiar with the matter.

Just a month ago, Kanye West praised Trump in his tweet and also wrote that they ‘are both dragon energy.’ The tweet was even credited by Trump himself later on, for raising his approval rate among the group.
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.

Trump has been shown scant support by the African Americans in the past, and Trump himself spoke out about the West duo’s contribution to his support. During the National Rifle Association’s annual conference in Texas, Trump said:
Kanye West must have some power because you probably saw I doubled my African American poll numbers. We went from 11 to 22 in one week.
