Kanye West is planning on reinventing the presidential campaign. With Elon Musk by his side, West is ready to claim his seat at the White House. In a new interview with Forbes, Kanye West reveals his plans on why exactly he’s running for president, what his campaign will look like, and the role Elon Musk plays.
In the interview Kanye West says he’s running for president under a new banner – the “Birthday Party”. Elon Musk will provide guidance with the campaign, but he’s not exactly the vice-presidential candidate. The vice-presidential candidates are “obscure”, and already chosen. While he’ll be competing against Donald Trump, a man he openly supported throughout the last couple of years, he says he no longer supports Trump. He says, “I am taking the red hat off with this interview”. For readers who might be confused on as to why he supported Trump in the first place, Kanye says “one of the main reasons I wore the red hat as a protest to the segregation of votes in the Black community”. Also, because he likes Trump hotels and the saxophones in the lobby.
Much like he previously stated before, Kanye once again admitted he never voted in his life. He then reveals that he was sick with COVID-19 in February, and he’s suspicious of a coronavirus vaccine. He noted on the effects of the virus revealing he had “chills”, was “shaking in bed”, and says he even had to compete with Drake: “I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me”
All in all, Kanye West promises he’s going to win, and the White House organizational model will be based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther.
