January 1, Kanye West Says He’s Running For President in 2024



Rapper Kanye West announced that he’s running for president in 2024.

West, who now goes by Ye, also shared that he asked former President Donald Trump to be his running mate.

“First time at Mar-a-Lago Rain and traffic,” Ye tweeted. “Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting And I had on jeans Yikes What you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?”

The rapper’s tweet included a poll with two options for what Twitter users thought Trump’s response was: “That’s very Ye” or “That’s very Nay.”

Ye has been the subject of recent controversy over antisemitic remarks. Trump addressed Ye during a recent interview with podcast host Chris Stigall. The host suggested Ye was a “marked man” after aligning with the former president, and questioned whether the rapper was getting a “fair shake.”

“I was very honored, in a sense, because he said all those great things about me on Tucker Carlson. He made statements, rough statements, on Jewish [people],” Trump said. “You’ve heard them and you know them well, and they’re saying that was the reason. So then you ask, well, would it have been the same thing if he didn’t say all those good things about Trump? You know, you just don’t know.”

West previously ran for president as an independent in 2020. He received roughly 60,000 votes after only being placed on the ballot in 12 states.

Ye has yet to file the paperwork required to be a federal candidate, according to Insider. It is likely that the rapper and fashion designer would face an uphill battle if he does officially enter the 2024 race.

A Morning Consult poll conducted shortly after his antisemitic remarks found that 60% of U.S. adults hold an unfavorable opinion of West — up 10% from a survey conducted in Dec. 2021.
