KANYE West announced a presidential bid in 2024 in a campaign video, revealing that he had also asked former President Donald Trump to become his running mate.
A nearly two-minute video posted to his Twitter account showed Kanye discussing his relationship with Trump and ranting about his actions following the Jan. 6, 2021 US Capitol riots.
“I think what disturbed Trump the most was me asking him to be my vice president.” said Kanye.
“I think that was further down the list of things that caught him off guard. It was the fact that I came in with intelligence.”
Kanye added that Trump was “really impressed” with America First podcaster Nick Fuentes for his loyalty to the former president.
“And when all the lawyers said, ‘Forget it. Trump’s done,’ Loyalists ran to the White House,” Kanye said, referring to staunch reporters like Fuentes.
“And my question would be, why didn’t you free the January Sixes when you had the chance?” he asked.
Kanye claimed that when he approached Trump with his question, he told him a “mob-like” story about what he went through to get criminal justice reform activist Alice Johnson out of jail.
“And how he didn’t do it for Kim, he did it for me,” said Kanye, who then claimed Trump allegedly gave Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian a name to page out in the video.
“And I thought, this is the mother of my children.
“Since we know, and all Christians in America who love Trump know, that Trump is a conservative, we will require that you follow the Bible directly on all policies,” he said.
Kanye claimed Trump “basically yelled at him” that he was going to lose the election.
“I mean, has that ever worked for someone in history that I’m going to lose? I say, ‘Wait, Trump. You talk to Ye.”
The video ended with the phrase “YE24”.
