Kanye West revealed that he has asked former US president Donald Trump to be his “running mate” for the 2024 presidential elections.
“I think the thing that Trump was most perturbed about – me asking him to be my vice president,” the rapper, who now goes by Ye, said in a video uploaded to Twitter Thursday night.
The video coincides with multiple outlets reporting that Ye had met with the former president earlier this week at Trump’s Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, but the former president has yet to publicly comment on whether the meeting happened.
The video tagged the location of the Ye interview as “YEEZY HQ” in Los Angeles, California, and served as a debrief from the rapper’s alleged meeting with Trump.
“I think that was like lower on the list of things that caught him off-guard,” Ye said of his request for Trump to be his vice president. “It was the fact that I walked in with intelligence.”
