The normally chatty rapper seemed lost for words when TV host Jimmy Kimmel asked him whether he thought Mr Trump cared about black people, “or any people at all”.
His silence on Thursday’s show prompted Kimmel to cut to a commercial break.
But West tweeted on Saturday that he “wasn’t given a chance to answer”.
The 41-year-old hip-hop star has previously referred to Mr Trump as “my brother” and said they shared the same “dragon energy”.
In Thursday’s late-night chat show, Kimmel referred to West’s famous claim from 2005 that President George W Bush “doesn’t care about black people”, and asked the superstar: “What makes you think that Donald Trump does – or any people at all?”
