President Donald Trump’s campaign sent out an email to supporters on Thursday following Kanye West’s tweet storm in support of Trump.

“DON’T  BE SILENCED. The American People do not want to be told what to think or who to support,” the text read. “Group think is a mandate in today’s society and when a free-thinker like Kanye West speaks truth, they attack him.”
