Caldwell: Kanye’s Trump Support Could Initiate 'Competition' Among Celebrities
Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said Saturday that rapper Kanye West's show of support for President Donald Trump could initiate a movement of celebrities opening up about their political beliefs and values.
West voiced his support for the president on Twitter after last week tweeting in support of conservative commentator Candace Owens.
I love the way Candace Owens thinks

His comments have drawn reaction from other celebrities like John Legend and Chance The Rapper.
"People like Chance The Rapper, Kanye West ... especially if it becomes a trend is going to become competition in the marketplace when it comes to Democrats and Republicans," Caldwell said.

Caldwell said on "Cavuto Live" that he loves the independent-thought "dynamic" displayed by West and that it could have an effect on those who follow him to do the same.
"This is an interesting time," he said. "I'm really, really excited about it."
West on Friday tweeted that he is "refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought," and that he hasn't "done enough research on conservatives" to call himself as such.
I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one. I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought.
