Popular American rapper, kanye West has announced that he has plans to run for president come 2024, and he says he is not just going to run, but going to win.
He stated this to Power 92 saying the medical industry is one of the main things he would be looking at as President. He said.
“If I decide to do it, it will be done,” he promised in a new hour-long interview with Chicago’s Power 92 radio station Thursday (Aug. 30). “I’m not gonna try.”
“One of my main things, once I’m president, is the medical industry. I’m gonna make sure that the medical industry flourishes.”
West first announced his interest in the presidential bid three years ago, at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, where he originally named the year 2020 as his goal.
In April, the rapper reportedly tweeted (and deleted) a photo of posters reading “Keep America Great Again,” a nod to current president Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, along with the hashtag #Kanye2024.
“Trump ain’t fucking up the paper,” he noted in his latest interview. “Those jobs are up … I don’t know all the policies. I don’t agree with everything that any other man does, period.”
“And I’m not particularly left or right. I thought of a name for my party I’d run with: the Birthday Party,” he joked.
During the lengthy conversation, he also discussed dealing with his bipolar disorder. He said;
“Let me tell you,” he said, “I’ve been diagnosed with bipolarity, and I haven’t taken medication in five months and I’m talking to you super calm. I get my sleep. I don’t drink a lot of alcohol. I drink a lot of water, I work on my diet and I work on my mind.
And I talk and be around people who love me. You need love. The world needs love, especially sensitive people with so-called mental health issues.”
