Donald Trump recently admitted feeling disappointed by Kim Kardashian after she celebrated Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election. In a recent interview with author Ramin Setoodeh, reported by the Washington Post, the former president opened up about his feelings when Kim posted three blue heart emojis on social media following the election results.

“I was disappointed in Kim,” Trump confessed. “I get along with her fine. I got along with her then-husband — in fact, he endorsed me and all that stuff.” Trump was referring to Kim’s ex-husband, Kanye West, who had been a vocal supporter of Trump during his presidency. However, West did not vote in the 2020 election. He teased a presidential run himself, which was overshadowed by his highly publicized mental health struggles and controversial anti-Semitic remarks that led to widespread backlash.

Trump highlighted his administration’s efforts on prison reform—an issue Kim has been actively advocating for. “With Kim, I did a lot of prison reform that she couldn’t get done with anyone else. Then, wanting to be accepted by Hollywood, she didn’t endorse me,” Trump claimed. He quickly backtracked, suggesting that ‘someone’ had told him that Kim never actually endorsed him, implying he may have been misinformed about her stance, according to the Washington Post.

Trump also has a strained relationship with Kim’s sister, Khloe Kardashian. During the 2009 season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” Trump made derogatory comments about her appearance, referring to her as “the ugly Kardashian” and a “piglet,” according to the Huffington Post. The show’s editor alleged that Trump was furious and asked, “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one (Kim)?” Khloe was eventually fired from the show. A source confirmed, “He said, ‘Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?’”

Another insider added, “When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit. It was on him not liking her.” In the interview, Trump acknowledged the tension with Khloe. He stated, “We never got along great,” and cited “little chemistry.” He couldn’t resist commenting on her appearance, saying, “She looks so much different today. I saw her fairly recently. Better! She looks better,” as per The Daily Guardian.

The most significant point of contention between Trump and the Kardashians arose from West’s association with the former president after his split from Kim. West, who had developed a close relationship with Trump, sparked outrage when he brought white supremacist podcaster Nick Fuentes to a dinner with the former president. Trump promptly claimed he had no prior knowledge of who Fuentes was and subsequently distanced himself from the Donda rapper, deeming West a “seriously troubled man.”
