Despite being embroiled in a number of issues due to his recent behavior, rapper Kanye West has declared his intention to run for US president in 2024.
The celebrity, whose name is now Ye legally, released a video of his campaign logo on social media with the comment Ye 24.
Additionally, he asserted that he asked Donald Trump to serve as his running mate.
West attempted to run for president in 2020, but that effort failed, garnering only 70,000 votes.
His most recent assertions were made in a video that was published after West and renowned white nationalist Nick Fuentes were sighted at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club earlier this week.
West claimed that the former president, having just started his own reelection campaign, was “very agitated” by his request for a running mate.
West stated: “Trump started really yelling at me at the table, telling me I’m going to lose,” in a video dubbed Mar-A-Lago Debrief. Has anyone in history ever had success with that?
West’s campaign has begun while the rapper deals with a lot of negative controversies.
After visiting Paris Fashion Week wearing a T-shirt with the slogan “White Lives Matter,” which white nationalists started using in 2015 as a retort to the Black Lives Matter campaign, he sparked a firestorm of outrage.
West then made the stereotypical antisemitic accusation that his detractors were being funded by a hidden Jewish cabal.
