"Let me clarify the click bait", the rapper tweeted on Saturday. Kimmel asks him "Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter". Kimmel threw to commercial break, and the rapper never ended up answering the question.
He added: "The question was so important I took time to think".
The move created a bit of a media storm, and Kanye has since taken to social media to claim he was simply not given enough time to answer, and needed more time to think. During the interview, Kimmel and West touched on a number of topics, including fashion, music, married life, and of course, Donald Trump. Record producer DJ Clarke Kent actually tweeted the news saying he had been in the studio with West when the artist said to "let that new "XTCY' joint go!"
Taliban launch attack on Afghan city, casualties
Meanwhile, the bodies of three Czech soldiers killed in a suicide bombing claimed by the Taliban in Afghanistan arrived in Prague. Police special forces have also been deployed to help block the Taleban advance on the city, an Afghan security official said.
West upset people this year by declaring support for Trump, and, separately, suggesting that slavery was "a choice".
Kanye considered the question without answering before Kimmel took a commercial break.
Kimmel tested that theory Thursday when he asked West - who said that critics of Trump should "try love", and end divisiveness "by thinking of everyone as our family" - about the president's actual policies. (The two famously feuded over Twitter in 2013.) "He lead with love".
US Market Indexes Close With Losses on Friday
Shares of trade-sensitive companies also declined, including Boeing, 3M and Caterpillar, which were all down at least 1 per cent. Rite Aid fell 11.5 per cent after the drug store chain and USA grocer Albertsons Cos agreed to terminate their merger agreement.
West tilted his head to think, said nothing and the show then went to break. "I got four of them" (at press time, even the analysts at the lyric site Genius hadn't touched that one yet). And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's'.
"Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me", the Chicago rapper told Kimmel.
