INDIO, CALIFORNIA - APRIL 21: Chance The Rapper performs at Sunday Service during the 2019 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival on April 21, 2019 in Indio, California.

Chance The Rapper wants to know if his 8.3 million Twitter followers “are more pro [Joe Biden] or anti [Kanye West] and why?”

“Are u more pro Biden or anti ye and why?” the Chicago native tweeted on Monday (July 13), during a rant about politics.

“I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna ‘get trump out’ but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??”

A myriad of Chance’s fans replied to the rapper. “It’s not just trust (even though that’s definitely part of it – how can we trust someone’s judgment if he endorsed Trump?). It’s a lack of qualifications,” one person replied to the rapper.

“Kanye has no extended experience in government, local or otherwise. We gotta stop endorsing celebs just because we like them.”

“because we should not have to teach a millionaire the ins and outs of presidency just because he decided he wanted to run,” another fan said to Chance.

“Can you give me one solid platform he has? One thing he’s actively looking to improve that he can only do so as president? or does he just want to?”

“Reparations. Prison Abolition. Universal Basic Housing. Education Reform. Universal Basic Income,” Chance The Rapper replied.

“There’s more but ion work for folks so ill let him do his job. Just saying we been doing this thing the same way for a long time. Can a blck man get a chance.”

Apparently, eventually Chance felt like he got “the answer.” “I finally got the answer now. I understand. Yall trust Biden more than yall trust Ye. I think I understand why I just don’t feel the same way,” he tweeted.
