Paris Hilton voted for Donald Trump

Paris Hilton has revealed she voted for Donald Trump in the recent US presidential election.

The 35-year-old socialite-and-businesswomen has shared her political views in the wake of the America election result earlier last week which saw controversial Republican candidate Trump win the race to the White House against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Whilst many celebrities have rallied for Clinton since the result, the blonde beauty has said she backed Trump, 70, because he's a family friend to the Hiltons.

Speaking on Australian television show 'The Project', Paris said: "My mother always told me not to talk about politics or money.

"I've known him (Trump) since I was a little girl, so, yes [I voted for him]."

And she's not the only celebrity to publicly speak about Trump's presidency, as rapper Kanye West said at a show he "would have voted for Trump" if he had cast a vote on November 8.

He said on stage in San Jose: "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted for Trump.

"I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y'all sang it at the top of your lungs. That doesn't mean that you're a Trump supporter. That just means you OK with a celebrity having their own opinion. Or that someone else is OK to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion but you can still like that person or still like that person's music."

Meanwhile, Paris claimed she wouldn't rule out running for office herself one day.

Asked if she'd ever consider running for President, she said: "Sounds good. I like the ring to that. President Paris. I like that."
