Trump thinks Kanye West acting too ‘crazy’ after anti-semitic outbursts

Even Donald Trump thinks Kanye West should dial it back.

The former president believes the rapper is acting too “crazy” in the wake of his recent anti-semitic outbursts and public meltdowns, according to a new report.

Trump, who has previously boasted that West has been “a friend of mine for a long time,” has told multiple people in recent days that he thinks the songwriter needs professional “help,” sources told Rolling Stone.

Despite regularly sharing his unsolicited opinions about others online, Trump is now intentionally trying to keep his public distance from West — now known legally as Ye — following his recent tirades, the sources added.

West has sparked outrage over a series of anti-semitic posts in recent weeks, which led to him being booted from both Instagram and Twitter.

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” West had written in an Oct. 9 tweet — making an erroneous reference to the military term “defcon.”

Donald Trump, who has previously boasted of his friendship with Kanye West, has reportedly said he believes the rapper is acting too “crazy.”

He had earlier shared a since-deleted screenshot on Instagram of an iMessage exchange in which he accused Sean Combs, aka Diddy, of being controlled by Jews.

West’s online posts came less than a week after he created a firestorm for donning a “White Lives Matter’’ t-shirt during Paris Fashion Week.

Despite West’s recent string of outbursts, Trump has been noticeably quiet about the 45-year-old rapper on his Truth Social platform.

The former commander-in-chief did, however, lash out at American Jewish voters in a Truth Social post on Sunday, saying: “No President has done more for Israel than I have.”

He added: “Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciated of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the US.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if there has been any private communication between Trump and West in recent days.

Earlier this month, West had referred to Trump as his friend and “my boy” during a wide-ranging interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

He also revealed he had been “threatened” over his support of the 45th president.

“My so-called friends-slash-handlers around me told me if I said that I liked Trump that my career would be over, that my life would be over,” West said.

“They said stuff like, ‘People get killed for wearing a hat like that,’” he added, referring to his infamous White House visit in 2018 where he wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat. They threatened my life. They basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat.”
