No matter what

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if the expression "no matter what"(in any event; without regard to what happens) sounds idiomatic/correct in the examples below. Please, take a look.

1. - We are friends, no matter what. --> In this sentence, the question is: can I use "are" and "no matter what" in the same sentence?

2. - I am here for you, no matter what. -->In this sentence, the question is: can I use "am" and "no matter what" in the same sentence?



Thank you very much in advance!

    Yes both sound good. XX, no matter what could be completed to mean no matter what happens, XX will still be true. Written like this it is clear that pretty much any (grammatically correct!) statement can be used in place of XX.

    Donkeys will always have silly ears, no matter what (happens).
