  • Rap star who wants to be U.S. president













    Why do you think a rap star thinks they can be president?

    Would you vote for an entertainer? Why or why not?


    The rapper Kayne West wants to be the president of the U.S.A.

    He s"extremely cautious" about a coronavirus vaccine.

    He said they want to put computer chips inside of us. They want to do many things so we can’t go to heaven."

    If he wins he said it will be a birthday party. "Because that will be everybody's birthday," he said.

    When I'm president, let's also have some fun. Let's stop all the racism talking. Let's empower people.

    He also said he wants to end bad police actions, and he is against the death punishment.

    He also wants to "clean up the chemicals - in our deodorant, in our toothpaste". He hasn't developed his foreign plans but is "focused on protecting America, first, with our great military".

    What about his approach to taxes? He said he hadn't done the research yet. "I will research that with the strongest experts that serve God."

    He believes he got coronavirus in February, but said a vaccine was "the mark of the beast".

    He said he loves China. “coronavirus is not China's blame. It's not the Chinese people's fault. They're God's people also. I love China. It changed my life. It changed my perspective, it gave me such a wide perspective."

    But he would take a radical approach to being a president.

     I didn’t have a policy when I went to Nike and designed Yeezy. And also 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."




    His running mate for vice president would be Michelle Tidball, who is an obscure church preacher.
