Kanye Wests tweet storm about the Democratic Partys dark past showed no signs of slowing down Monday following a series of posts in support of President Donald Trump last week.

The 40-year-old rapper posted a screenshot of a message he received on his phone arguing that Republicans, not Democrats, should properly be credited with helping black Americans.

In the screenshot West tweeted from the person identified as Steve, the message read that “Radical Republicans in Congress” at the time of President Abraham Lincoln and President Andrew Johnson “sought stronger measures to upgrade the rights of African Americans, including the fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

At the bottom of the message he included two pictures, one that read, “First Black Democrat Senator 1993” and the other that read, “First Black Republican Senator 1870.”

West said the tweet wasnt in response to the ones he shared from a person identified as Kweli, who claimed that Lincoln Republicans were not the same ones that are now part of the GOP.

this next text is not directly at Kweli. It just came to my phone at the same time.

Before that, West shared a conversation he was having with a person identified as Tmills, who quoted a series of comments credited to conservative economist and political philosopher Thomas Sowell.

Last week, West tweeted that Trump was his “brother” and said that the “mob cant make me not love him.”

You dont have to agree with trump but the mob cant make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I dont agree with everything anyone does. Thats what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.

Trump noticed the comments and responded with “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”
