Billionaire rapper and sneaker mogul Kanye West is dumping Trump and is vying for his position in the White House. He recently spoke with Forbes about his aspirations to lead the free world.
“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” West told Forbes in reference to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats.
“It looks like one big mess to me,” he said. “One of the main reasons I wore the red hat as a protest to the segregation of votes in the black community. Also, other than the fact that I like Trump hotels and the saxophones in the lobby.”
West said Saturday he was running for president in the 2020 election, but with Election Day just four months away, he has yet to register with the Federal Election Commission and has missed the deadline to file in many states.
The rapper said he’s “speaking with experts” about how to get on the ballot and floated using the coronavirus pandemic to bolster his efforts.
“I’m going to speak with Jared Kushner, the White House, with [Joe] Biden,” he said.
“I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there,” he said, adding that he’s “pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible” and he supports prayer in schools.
West is going to run under the “Birthday Party” and seems to be taking more aim at Biden than Trump. I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
Kanye West let it be known that he is weary about the possible vaccines for covid-19 and believes it may very well be the “Mark Of The Beast”. “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I’m sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it. Next question.”
Kanye West envisions the United States to be a Wakanda like country under his rule. “A lot of Africans do not like the movie [Black Panther] and representation of themselves in…Wakanda. But I’m gonna use the framework of Wakanda right now because it’s the best explanation of what our design group is going to feel like in the White House…That is a positive idea: you got Kanye West, one of the most powerful humans—I’m not saying the most because you got a lot of alien level superpowers and it’s only collectively that we can set it free. Let’s get back to Wakanda.”
West also believes in giving racism and end by stating, “Let’s get past all the racism conversation, let’s empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let’s give some land, that’s the plan.”
