“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump,” he said. “I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country.”
John Legend has described Kanye West’s assembly with with US President-elect Donald Trump as “a publicity stunt”.
The rapper visited Trump Tower earlier this week. Mr Trump stated they’d mentioned “life”.
“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” the rapper tweeted before the meeting.
Legend, who has worked together with West in the past and has associations with his record label, said he sees the meeting as a “publicity stunt”.
“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to him about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt,” he said. “I think Kanye was a publicity stunt. Whatever’s in his mind, I disagree with him”.
Talking after their meeting, Mr Trump said the two were “just friends” and that they examined “life”, depicting the performer as a “good man”.
