Kanye West, an ardent supporter of President Trump, announced he is quitting politics after being “used to spread messages I don’t believe in” and denounced the president over his immigration policy.

The singer made the surprising declaration on Twitter late today.

“My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!,” he wrote.

He indicated the split came over Trump’s policies on immigration, which had seen migrant children separated from their parents who came to the country illegally and ordering troops to the border to stave off a caravan of people walking to the United States from Central America.

“I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable. I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war,” the rapper wrote.

He also denounced the ‘blexit’ movement – black people leaving the Democratic Party – and its conservative founder Candace Owens.

West said even though his name was used he “never wanted any association” and has “nothing to do with it.”

West also thanked his family for their support.

Kanye is close with Trump, having first met with him at Trump Tower shortly after Trump won the 2016 presidential election.

He’s also met with him in the Oval Office earlier this month where he went on an extended rant as he sat across from Trump at the Resolute Desk, where he dropped the F bomb, spoke about his bipolar disorder diagnosis and even shared a warm hug with the president, who concluded that his speech “pretty impressive.”

That led 50 Cent to taunt Kanye with a cartoon.

Earlier this month West left fans bewildered after he posted a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again on a private jet and called for the removal of the 13th Amendment in the caption.

The tweets left fans scratching their heads as they attempted to comprehend what exactly West was saying about the constitutional amendment, which outlawed slavery back in 1865.

Technically, abolishing that amendment would allow states to enslave people again.

Lana Del Rey ripped West, as did Captain America Chris Evans.

“The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying,” Evans tweeted.

Then “ye” as he now refers to himself, was booed by the audience while promoting Trump following a Saturday Night Live performance.
