Kanye West who has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump for years has stated that he no longer supports the Republican President.
This is coming after the billionaire rapper announced he is running for president himself, despite having missed deadlines in several states to actually get on the ballot.
In a recent interview with Forbes, Kanye revealed that he has lost confidence in the commander in chief.
Referring to reports that Trump was briefly moved to an underground bunker during protests at the White House over racial injustice and police brutality.
“It looks like one big mess to me,” West said. “I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
Many have claimed that West’s move is only a publicity stunt, a claim he dismissed during the interview.
Kanye said he had no issue with the idea that his planned run could potentially take votes away from presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and aid in the reelection of Trump.
“I’m not denying it, I just told you,” West said. “To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
“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,” the publication also quoted West as saying. “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.”
