In a surprising political development, Kanye West's attitude towards U.S. President Donald Trump has shifted. It seems that the Make America Great Again has is coming off and the Birthday Party banner is going up.
Over the course of a 4-hour interview with Forbes magazine that was released on Wednesday, Kanye West opened up about numerous subjects including his the withdrawal of his support for the president, the fact that he's never voted in his life and is distrust in the potential vaccine for coronavirus.
During the interview, he mentioned that he contracted the virus back in February, stating he had displayed some key symptoms of the virus:
Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I'm supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!
The 'Good Life' rapper certainly lives it from his multi-platinum selling records to a tremendously successful apparel company. In recent years he has been more and more vocal about his desire to take the White House and run for President of the United States of America.
Over the course of the interview, he confessed that he has lost confidence in the president and commented on the fact that it was reported that Trump was moved to a secret bunker for a period of time during some of the Black Lives Matter protests:
It looks like one big mess to me... I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.
When the interviewer asked about his political policies Kanye stated:
I don’t know if I would use the word policy for the way I would approach things. I don’t have a policy when I went to Nike and designed Yeezy and went to Louis and designed a Louis Vuitton at the same time. It wasn’t a policy, it was a design. We need to innovate the design to be able to free the mind at this time.
He continued to state that he plans to run the White House like the fictional country of Wakanda from the movie Black Panther which is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While some of the contents of his statement regarding this don't make too much sense:
… like in the movie in Wakanda when the king went to visit that lead scientist to have the shoes wrap around her shoes
He does make a broader more positive statement that we could definitely see ourselves getting behind:
We are going to work, innovate, together.
Kanye has already garnered support in his decision to run for president by his wife Kim Kardashian as well as Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Time will tell whether his 2020 candidacy becomes a reality or not, as he has already missed the deadlines to get his name on the ballots for most stated, however, he confident he can find a way on.
