Kanye West hits Trump in first video of 2024 presidential campaign
Ye, the rap musician formerly known as Kanye West, released his first campaign video Thursday for an unlikely presidential nomination in 2024, slamming at former President Donald Trump in the process.
In the video posted to Twitter, Ye shared that he had previously offered Trump a position as his vice presidential nominee, a comment Ye made in confusion and frustration.
“I think that’s what Trump was most concerned about [was] I asked him to be my vice president,” Ye said in the video. “I think that was further down the list of things that caught him off guard.”
The comments were made during a “debriefing” of Yes’s visit to the White House and meeting with then-President Trump in October 2018.
In Thursday’s campaign video, Ye also challenged Trump not to act to legally protect those who trespassed on the US Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, while he was in office.
The owner of clothing brand Yeezy said he “came in with intelligence” during the meeting as “someone who loves Trump,” urging him to listen more to his loyalists.
“He’s basically telling me this wannabe mob-ish kind of story about everything he went through to get Alice Johnson out of jail and how he didn’t do it for Kim [Kardashian] but he did it for me,” Ye recalled in the video.
Johnson was a 63-year-old whom Trump pardoned in 2018.
The music mogul also claimed the former president yelled at him and insulted his then-wife Kim Kardashian. The two split in March 2022.
Ye then claimed Trump “basically started yelling at me at the table and telling me I’m going to lose.”
“Did that work for anyone in the story?” You joked.
He added: “That I’m going to lose? Wait, you’re talking to Ye.”
Ye has not officially announced his intention to run, although he previously commented that he would seek the presidency in 2024.
Trump officially attended the 2024 presidential election a week after the midterm elections and vowed to “make America great and glorious again.”
“I’m running because I believe the world hasn’t seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We haven’t reached that peak yet, believe it or not,” Trump said Nov. 15.
He added: “As I promised in 2016, I am your voice. i am your voice The Washington establishment wants to silence us, but we won’t let them. What we’ve built together over the past six years is the biggest movement in history because it’s not about politics. This is about our love for this great country, America, and we will not let it fail us.”
