Kanye West has announced his intention to run for the US presidential elections scheduled to hold in 2024. In a recent video, reporters can be seen asking the rapper-singer if he will run for the presidency again. To this, Ye answered in the affirmative. "It’s simple…. It’s just we’re moving toward the future,” he replied.
Donald Trump might be Kanye West's running mate for 2024 elections
Kanye West has declared his intention to run for US President in 2024, and as of right now, he has reportedly requested former President Donald Trump to serve as his running partner.
Pointing to political figure Milo Yiannopoulos, who was also in the video, the rapper and business tycoon said, "This is Milo right here, working on the campaign."
Since this revelation, West has been keeping people in the loop about his bid. Today, November 23, 2022, the musician revealed that he had met with former president Donald Trump to discuss the forthcoming elections
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "First time at Mar-a-Lago. Rain and traffic can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting. And I had on jeans. Yikes."
Post a poll for his fans, he added: “What you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?"
This is his second go at the presidency. In 2020, West tried to become president under the "Birthday Party" banner, which was unsuccessful as he eventually conceded after appearing on the ballot in only 12 of the 50 states and not getting enough votes.
Prior to his presidential bid, the rapper publicly supported Trump and visited the White House wearing his infamous "Make America Great Again" cap.
Like West, Trump, is also running for President in 2024 after serving one term as the 45th president of the United States between 2017 and 2021. Both of them recently returned to Twitter. Trump was banned from the platform after the January 6th US Capitol riots last year while West was removed for his anti-Semitic views.
It is unclear what the response will be from the former president judging by his recent statement about the rapper where he tagged him as "acting too crazy." The former president, who had previously boasted that West was a longtime buddy of his, denounced their relationship in the wake of the rapper's most recent anti-Semitic outbursts and public meltdowns.
