President Donald Trump hailed Kanye West's vocal support after Fox News reported the rapper's tweets.

West lost millions of Twitter followers by sharing a photo of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and saying Trump was his brother -- and the president thanked the rapper and producer again.

"Kanye West has performed a great service to the Black Community - Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in Decades - Legacy Stuff!" Trump tweeted.

He also celebrated Chance the Rapper for saying that black Americans did not have to vote Democrat, and he name-checked a black Ohio pastor who's been a longtime supporter.

"Thank you also to Chance and Dr. Darrell Scott, they really get it (lowest Black & Hispanic unemployment in history)," the president tweeted.
