Ye steals Donald Trump in first video of 2024 presidential campaign

Ye, the rap musician formerly known as Kanye West, released his first campaign video Thursday for an unlikely presidential nomination in 2024, slamming at former President Donald Trump in the process.

In the video posted to Twitter, Ye shared that he had previously offered Trump a position as his vice presidential nominee, a comment Ye made in confusion and frustration.

“I think that’s what Trump was most concerned about [was] I asked him to be my vice president,” Ye said in the video. “I think that was further down the list of things that surprised him.”

In Thursday’s campaign video, Ye also challenged Trump not to act to legally protect those who trespassed on the US Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, while he was in office.

The owner of clothing brand Yeezy said he “came in with intelligence” during the meeting as “someone who loves Trump,” urging him to listen more to his loyalists.

“He’s basically telling me this wannabe mob-ish kind of story about everything he went through to get Alice Johnson out of jail and how he didn’t do it for Kim [Kardashian] but he did it for me,” Ye recalled in the video.
