Kanye West continued to spread his "Make America Great Again" support, this time posting a tweet of himself wearing the red MAGA hat and calling for the abolition of the 13th Amendment on Sunday.

"This represents good and America becoming whole again," he wrote in the post. "We will no longer outsource to other countries. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love."

Many were confused about the context of the post, and West attempted to clarify in a follow-up tweet.

"The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise . . . meaning it never ended . . . We are the solution that heals," he said.

Some speculated that West was referring to a section of the amendment that permitted slavery and involuntary servitude to continue across the country, The Washington Times reported.

West's latest tweet comes on the heels of his controversial appearance on the 44th season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

He closed the show wearing a MAGA cap and delivering a speech about politics, again voicing his support for the president.

"So many times I talk to a white person about this and they say, 'How could you like Trump? He's racist,'" West said, according to footage posted on Instagram by comedian Chris Rock and shared by CNN reporter Frank Pallotta. "Well, if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago."

Earlier this year, West also vocally expressed his opinions on slavery, noting it was a choice, while sporting his MAGA hat in an appearance on "TMZ Live."

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice," he said, according to TMZ.
