Kanye West for President?
It is believed that West will run for the presidency in 2020. If he will, many assume that he will run as a Democrat. He posed for a selfie with Hillary Clinton last year. The photo was taken by his wife, Kim Kardashian.
New York magazine reported that he donated $1,000 to Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign. Many believed that although he supports Trump, he will run as a Democrat should he pursue presidency in 2020.
Kanye West Vs Jay-Z
TIME notes that West?s erratic speech comes after a broadly reported feud with Jay-Z. The issue was widely talked about last month. Jay-Z and his wife Beyonc? were supporters of Hillary Clinton.
Apart from the alleged feud between West and Jay-Z which is supposedly caused by the U.S. elections, another issue involves the two. The former attacked his Watch the Throne collaborator for not following up with his family. That was specifically after Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
