'I Love the Way Candace Owens Thinks': Kanye Praises Black Conservative Activist


Candace Owens blasted former President Barack Obama on Sunday, saying that he caused "damage" to race relations in the United States during his two terms in office.

Owens, communications director for Turning Point USA, said that conservative African-Americans have long been ignored.

She became involved in a national political conversation after rapper Kanye West voiced his support of her in April, saying, "I love the way Candace Owens thinks."

"It’s been so black and white, the conversation, and I blame [Barack] Obama," Owens said on "Fox & Friends."

"His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country."

"Hillary [Clinton] didn't help much when she kept calling everybody racist and sexist, so the language has changed and the rhetoric has changed," Owens said.

Owens said Republicans "gave up" on African-Americans and didn't embrace the black community.

"When I met with some of them, it was like an uphill battle."

Owens added that she supports a potential White House summit on race relations to which West could be invited.

White House adviser and Pastor Dr. Darrell Scott said on Saturday that President Trump is on board to host the rapper if a summit were to take place.

"The African-American community is not against the president," Scott said. "I'm very optimistic about this leading to the healing of this racial divide."
