Kanye West may have met with Donald Trump and shown the president public support, but Trump’s recent actions have shaken their relationship.

West has deleted all mentions of Trump from his Twitter account and is reportedly now anti-Trump, according to TMZ sources. In December, the two reportedly discussed issues of importance to West, such as “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”

The Trump administration also did not invite West to perform at Trump’s inauguration, citing their goal to provide “typically and traditionally American” entertainment.

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has in recent weeks tweeted against Trump’s travel restrictions for seven Muslim-majority countries.

But according to TMZ, West’s decision to abandon public Trump support was his alone.
