Kanye West reveals his intention to run for president in 2024, following his failed 2020 campaign.


Kanye West has revealed his intention to run for President of the United States in 2024, following his last unsuccessful bid.

In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, the musician, legally known as Ye, revealed his plans. He claims to have enlisted the assistance of far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos in his effort.

Kanye, 45, claims in the video that the former Breitbart News editor has already begun work on the ideas.

Ye can be heard saying, “This is Milo right here, working on the campaign,” in the video, which was shared on Twitter by PatriotTakes. One of the males in the video enquired as to if the statement was official.

Milo responded, “I think it is,” and then added, “Thanks, I accept.”


After that, when the cameraman asked Kanye if he would be running, Kanye responded, “Yes. It’s straightforward since nobody can advise me on what to say or not say, you know?

We’re just moving forward, that’s all.

The 2020 presidential campaign of the Gold Digger hitmaker is well-known, but he ultimately withdrew after receiving only 50,000 votes.

Kanye conceded his 2020 presidential bid

After returning to Twitter over the weekend, which sparked outrage right away, Kanye released his most recent video.

The musician tweeted “Shalom,” a reference to the racist incident that led to his initial suspension from the social media platform as if to test the waters.

Due to his vile anti-Semitic remarks, Kanye was initially banned from Twitter on October 9. However, since billionaire Elon Musk took control of the company, Ye has had his account reinstated.
