Kanye West Had Coronavirus & Disavows Support For Trump!
Everyone is asking if Kanye West was serious when he announced his run for President in 2020. He has missed the registration deadlines of some states. Moreover, he has to take some quick steps to make sure he registers on time for key states like Florida and Michigan. But, it looks like Kanye is serious about his Presidential bid. And in the process, he discloses that he had Coronavirus and disavows his support for Donald Trump!
Kanye admits he had the Coronavirus!
One major revelation that Kanye West made was that he had the Coronavirus back in February. And by the looks of it, his symptoms were pretty bad. However, Kanye reveals that the Coronavirus had nothing to do with his decision of running for the President. He recalls:
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!
Kanye did recover completely from the Coronavirus, but he did not like what the virus did to the United States at all. And it may have to do with the guy that Kanye supported before running for the White House himself. That man is Donald Trump.
Kanye loses faith in Donald Trump
At first, Kanye West reveals that he followed Trump because he brought God back in the conversation of American politics:
Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.
Coronavirus did not force Kanye’s hand to try his bid for the White House. But, Kanye was unsettled and disheartened by what he saw Trump did with the Black Lives Matter protests. Especially when he hid in the bunker. That is what made him stop supporting Trump:
It looks like one big mess to me. I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.
He dislikes Joe Biden a lot more
But, Kanye West was a lot more vocal about his dislike for Joe Biden. A lot more than Donald Trump, in fact. He said in the interview how he believes Biden is not a special man at all:
I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.
Moreover, Kanye also mentioned how displeased he was when he heard Joe Biden say “you don’t vote for me, then you are not Black”:
A lot of times just like political parties they feel all Blacks have to be Democrat. This man, Joe Biden, said if you don’t vote for me, then you are not Black. Well, act like we didn’t hear that? We act like we didn’t hear that man say that.
So, these are the reasons why Kanye West wants to run as the President in the 2020 elections. He has lost faith in Donald Trump and does not like the Democrats or Joe Biden at all. Moreover, he reveals that he would have run as a Republican if it wasn’t for Trump.
I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there.
And here we have it. After successfully recovering from the Coronavirus and being disappointed from Trump and Biden, Kanye West decides to run for the President. You can read the whole of his interview with Forbes here.
