Never one to miss a business opportunity, President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Thursday sent out an alert to supporters that is meant to fundraise off of rapper Kanye West’s tweets endorsing him.
“Group think is a mandate in today’s society and when a free thinker like Kanye West speaks truth, they attack him” the text alert, as posted on Twitter by the Wall Street Journal‘s Julie Kykowicz, read.
“We support Kanye speaking his mind, even if sometimes we do not agree on the issues,” the alert continued. “Do not let them silence you. Get your red MAGA hat today.”
Presto! Trump campaign now fundraising off the Kanye tweets. This text to supporters links to campaign MAGA hats for sale. pic.twitter.com/BNnmdD7paZ
