He says his eyes are now 'wide open'

Kanye West says he's distancing himself from politics - less than three weeks after meeting the US president at the White House.

The rapper's tweeted "My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in".

The pair discussed gun violence and Kanye voiced his support for Donald Trump when they met earlier this month.

Kanye now says he believes in tighter gun laws and compassion for asylum seekers.
