Kanye West said that he no longer supports President Trump, that Joe Biden is missing the “special” factor, and that he plans to run for President in 2020. West gave an extensive interview to Forbes magazine.
He said his support for the president diminished when he “caught wind that he hid in the bunker” during protests near the White House last month.
“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,” West, said.
West told the magazine that he is pro-life, pro-school prayer, against the death penalty and will run as an Independent. In the interview he also mentioned the “Birthday Party.” “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday,” West told Forbes. He also told the magazine that his campaign slogan will be “YES!”
‘I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party. And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.’ — Kanye West to Forbes on Joe Biden’s interview with Charlamagne Tha God.
West has not officially registered as a candidate, created a campaign committee nor taken any traditional steps involved with a run for office, Fox Business reported.
