Kanye West has doubled down on his support of Donald Trump, albeit with a caveat Kim Kardashian made him add.

The US president responded on social media by calling West "very cool".

The 'Gold Digger' rapper caused controversy in 2016 by saying he would've voted for the Celebrity Apprentice star in the US presidential election, before being photographed with him at Trump Tower.

West published dozens of tweets on Thursday morning (NZ time) on a number of varied topics, including his love of Trump.

"You don't have to agree with Trump, but the mob can't make me not love him," said West.

"We are both dragon energy. He is my brother."

However, Kardashian appears to have forced West to make it clear to fans that he doesn't support all of Trump's controversial policies.

A later tweet reads: "My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100 percent with anyone but myself."

It's not the only thing from his latest tweet storm Kardashian has pulled West up on. He also posted photos from inside their home - triggering her to respond with a message starting "ummm babe".

Other messages West tweeted on Thursday morning included him claiming yet again to be "this generation's Henry Ford / Howard Hughes / Steve Jobs / Walt Disney", and also "nice at ping pong".
