Rap artist Kanye West stated that he’s praying for a full recovery for President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump after testing positive for coronavirus last week.
Not many folks out there in the entertainment industry are doing such a noble thing, so this makes West stand out far and above others who have actually wished for the president’s death.
In a tweet on Saturday, West called for “civility across the board” and urged everyone to join hands in Jesus’ name.
“There’s a crying need for civility across the board. We need to and will come together in the name of Jesus,” West wrote. “I’m praying for President Trump’s and Melania’s full recovery, just as I would for Joe and Jill Biden if they were stricken, as well as everyone else with COVID-19.”

Kanye West’s has made Christianity the animating force behind much of his rhetoric lately, spurring him to become an outspoken pro-life advocate against abortion’s devastating effects on the black American community.
West spoke with Nick Cannon his his show, “Cannon Class” back in September, where he alleged that the leading provider of abortions in the country, Planned Parenthood, “strategically and on purpose” kills black people.
“In 50 years, there’s been 22 million — over 22,500,000 — black people aborted strategically and on purpose. Planned Parenthood was set up and placed in minority communities to kill black people,” the rapper said.
He’s definitely not wrong on either account.
When someone has this awful virus, it’s a time for prayer and coming together to wish those folks well and to do our best to help care for them and their families. Instead, the left has used Trump’s illness as an excuse to attack him. It’s vile to say the least.
Is there any reason that exists where we could set aside our politics and just come together as human beings?
