Soledad O'Brien didn't hold back and slammed West: "The 13th amendment abolished slavery".

"None of which would be a talking point if we weren't speaking about the man leading our country". We build factories here in America to create jobs.

The amendment, which was passed in the 1860s, abolishes slavery.

"Message sent with concern that will never be addressed", she added.

The assumption is that West wants to abolish the ability of prisons to be used for free labor.

The recording artist, known as one of the few A-list celebrities to rally behind US President Donald Trump, has caused much bewilderment Sunday, sparking a guessing game among his fans when he suggested that it's time to abolish the 13th amendment.

The 13th Amendment was a fierce battle for former President Abraham Lincoln as the Civil War raged on.

West recently made a stir - one that got actor Chris Evans to clap back at him - when he took to Twitter on September 30 to share a photo to his fans.

Maybe referring to the amendment's exemption for punishment for a crime, West later attempted to explain.

Ye is now backtracking on his 13th Amendment comments by taking to Twitter to say "The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended".

Wearing a Make America Great Again hat, he then delivered an unexpected speech in front of "Saturday Night Live' performers like Colin Jost and host Adam Driver".

Some high-profile people responded, including "Captain America" Chris Evans.

The tweet sparked outrage among his followers, and West later tried to clarify his position on the issue.

"I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level", she wrote, alleging that both share narcissistic traits and are in need of an intervention. "Message sent with distaste for idiocy".
