Though Cannon said that he doesn't know about the specifics surrounding 'Ye's campaign, he did admit (at least half-heartedly) that he'd vote for Kanye West in the upcoming election. In a new interview with Forbes magazine released on August 6, Kanye was confronted with the numbers that show he has no realistic chance of even coming close to winning.
While it remains to be seen what Kanye's attempting to accomplish with his presidential bid, some believe that the Republicans and GOP operatives are helping him qualify for the presidential ballot to draw Black votes from Joe Biden. The billionaire rapper/producer/designer said, "I'm not going to argue with you".
The unusual situation has led some to accuse Kanye as running as a "spoiler" candidate to draw voters away from Trump's Democrat rival Joe Biden in key states - an allegation the Gold Digger did not dispute when asked by Forbes magazine. A few hours after the Forbes article dropped, the Yeezy clothing designer tweeted, "THE GOAL IS TO WIN".
Kanye West has been dropped from the ballot in his home state of IL, failing to get the needed 2,500 signatures, state officials said on Friday. But in a last minute flurry, Ye's name has been added to the ballot in several key swing states like OH and possibly Wisconsin. West is getting help in the task by some GOP operatives.
"Trump is the closest president we've had in years to allowing God to still be a part of the conversation", West added.
Sean Tenner, the 46th Ward Democratic committeeperson, said he was moved to challenge West's petitions after hearing the rapper and designer tell a crowd in SC on July 19 that Harriet Tubman "never actually freed the slaves".
Kanye West's campaign has fallen short of meeting the minimum number of valid signatures needed to make the ballot in IL, local news outlet WTTW first reported Friday evening. "Just in case anyone needs some clarity around what's happening here", he wrote while sharing the article.
According to The New York Times, Republican allies and those with current and former ties to the 45th president - including those who were identified as engaging in criminality - are working feverishly to get Kanye on the ballots in several Midwestern states. That number was shrunk to 2,500 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"She just had the slaves go work for other white people", West said.
IL typically requires 25,000 signatures in order to appear on the ballot. His campaign also submitted signatures to get on the ballot Wednesday in Colorado and Ohio.
Trump replied, "I like him". [Kim's] got a good heart, very good heart. "I like him." He also praised Kim as having a "good heart".
