Presidential candidate Kanye West no longer supports Donald Trump, “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview”
Kanye West recently had an interview with Forbes where he revealed that he no longer supports President Trump….
“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview”
Kanye also went on to reveal the following:
On His Previous Support For President Trump:
“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
On His MAGA Hat Moment:
“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.”
On Running In 2020:
“God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy. Between all of the influences and the positions that we can be put in as musicians—you go on tour, you put out all these albums, and you look up and you don’t have any money in your account. It can drive you crazy, through all of that I was looking crazy because it wasn’t the time. Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.
On His Campaign Slogan:
“Well my second album is called Late Registration. I got a rap . . . The other thing is, my campaign is Kanye West YES, not YEP, not YEAH. YES. YES. YES. . . . When I’m president, let’s also have some fun. 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.”
On His Natural Political Party:
“I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there.”
On Deciding To Run For President:
“It’s when I was being offered the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Awards at MTV. I remember being at my mom’s house, my mother-in-law, because my house was being worked on, she calls me ‘son’ and I call her ‘mom,’ I was in the shower, thinking, I write raps in the shower. It hit me to say, ‘You’re going to run for president,’ and I started laughing hysterically, I was, like, this is the best, I’m going to go out there and they’re going to think I’m going to do these songs and do this for entertainment, how rigged awards shows are, and then say I’m going to run for president. And I just laughed in the shower, I don’t know for how long, but that’s the moment it hit me.”
On Discussions On Race With The White House:
“One time I talked to Jared Kushner, who was saying, ‘We don’t have Black leaders, we just have hustlers.’ Why? Because they killed all the Black leaders.” (Requests for comment from the White House and the Kushner Cos. last night were not immediately returned.)
On How The Race Will Be Decided:
“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”
WOW!!! Are you going to vote for Kanye West?
