    Kanye West was silent Thursday night during an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in which Kimmel asked about President Donald Trump, NBC News reported

    Kimmel pressed West, who has called the president his "brother," about Trump, pointing to his administration's now-defunct family separation policy on the southern border while discussing his character. 

    "I mean, you’ve so famously and so powerfully said George [W.] Bush doesn’t care about black people," Kimmel said. "It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does -- or any people at all?"

    West became silent and Kimmel suggest taking a break. He nixed the Trump talk afterward, moving onto fashion choices West has made for his children. The meandering interview touched on a number of subjects, including how having bipolar disorder affects West's creativity.
