“When asked by the passenger if he was backing Hillary, West made it clear he was all for Trump, but a source close to West says the Grammy Award winner supporting Trump is ‘totally untrue,'” the report said.

In September, Trump said that West “loved” him.

“You know what?” Trump said. “I will never say bad about him, you know why? Because he loves Trump! Kanye West has been so great.”

“He goes around saying ‘Trump is my all-time hero,'” Trump said. “He says it to everybody. So, Kanye West, I love him.” (RELATED: Here’s How Ben Carson Feels About Kanye Calling Him ‘Brilliant’)
