In a Rolling Stone interview published in the latter part of December 2016, John talks about his friend Kanye West and the coming Donald Trump Presidency.
Rolling Stone: You were outspoken in your opposition to Trump. What are your thoughts in the wake of his victory?
John Legend: It’s a bit of a challenge ’cause we don’t know who he is all the time. He’s been consistent about being a racist and about a couple of other things, but he’s also been wildly inconsistent and lied a lot. So we truly don’t know how he’s gonna govern. We haven’t seen anyone like him before. It’s a very kind of different world now, knowing that someone’s going to possibly dismantle a lot of what Obama accomplished. I don’t know where we’re going to go.
