Kanye West kicks off his 2020 presidential campaign in South Carolina with his first rally. Continuing to push his presidential bid, Kanye took to the stage to discuss his beliefs and how he will push the “Birthday Party”.
In tears, Kanye revealed he stopped Kim from aborting their first child, North West, because he got a “message from god”. He then says his father wanted to abort him, but his mother insisted he survive.

More quotes from the campaign rally:
"Politics, America, Trump, Biden, nor Kanye West can free us". West told the crowd. "The only thing that can free us is obeying the rules that were given to us as a promised land".
Kanye then went on to tell a story about his wife Kim Kardashian West's pregnancy and his reaction once he found out:
"And let me go to Planned Parenthood", he said. "My girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I'm a rapper. And she said I'm pregnant. She was crying". West said he was weighing up what to do, when he received what he interpreted as a sign from God. Mr. West said that he was in Paris, working on his laptop at the time.
'My screen went black and white,' he said. "And God said, if you f*** with my b****** I f*** with yours. And I called my girlfriend and said we're going to have this child. Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to".
