Kanye West has previously been named one of the five most likely independent candidates to run in 2024. Ye, the rapper also known as Kanye West, said in a video released Sunday that he will run for president in 2024. According to him, Milo Yiannopoulos, a far-right commentator who was recently Marjorie Taylor Greene's intern, is "working on his campaign." The video shows Kanye along with Yiannopoulos walking through the rapper's office.
“Is that an announcement?” one of them asks. “I guess it is,” Mr Yiannopoulos said. “Thanks, I accept”. “So you are running?” the cameraman asks the men. “Yes,” Ye replies.
“It’s simple ’cause ain’t nobody can tell me, you know, ‘you should say this, you shouldn’t say By the way, the rapper tested his Twitter profile yesterday. In a tweet that attracted a lot of attention, he marked his return to the mentioned social network, which caused numerous comments, both positive and negative.
2024 campaign news quickly went viral on Twitter.
“Kanye West announced that he’s running for president in 2024. Can it get any crazier?” Paul van der Meer wrote. “Kanye West meeting with misogynistic antisemitic white nationalist Christian fascist Nick Fuentes to plot running for president in 2024 seems like a solid career move,” Right Wing Watch tweeted.
“Kanye West just said he’ll run for president in 2024. A bit of a problem for Trump. They’ll compete over the same bigots and morons,” the account Republicans against Trumpism added. “He said that Milo Yiannopoulos, a notorious white supremacist, is working on his campaign.
Just like with Trump, the fact that so many white supremacist bigots love Kanye West tells you everything you need to know”. Twitter's new boss, Elon Musk, responded to Kanye's latest tweet, saying, "Don't kill what you hate, save what you love." Musk also brought another 2024 presidential candidate back to the platform, former President Donald Trump.
Namely, Musk polled Twitter users asking them if the former president should be allowed to return to the platform. The majority of voters answered "Yes". Kanye's 2024 presidential announcement was expected after he failed to garner support in the 2020 race.
Also, The Hill listed Kanye as one of the five most likely independent candidates to run in 2024, along with Liz Cheney, Howard Stern and Andrew Yang.
