Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, announced on Twitter this Thursday his possible candidacy for the 2024 presidential election. He used the platform back in 2020 to announce his first candidacy.
In the video, he explained that he had previously offered Trump a position to be his vice presidential candidate, something that confused and frustrated the former president, the rapper claimed.
"I think the thing Trump was most perturbed about was me asking him to be my vice president," Ye said in the video. "I think that was lower on the list of things that caught him off guard."
In the video, released Thursday, Ye recalls his visit to the White House and his meeting with the former president in 2018. The rapper took advantage of the opportunity to criticize Trump for not legally protecting those who invaded the Capitol on January 6, 2021, while he was in office.
The rapper and owner of the brand Yeezy said he "walked in with intelligence" to the meeting as "someone who loves Trump" and only advised him to "listen more to his loyalists."
Argument with Donald Trump
The rapper reveals in the video that he and Donald Trump got into an argument during his visit to the White House. Ye claims that Trump shouted on more than one occasion to his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
During the video, Ye explained that Trump "started basically screaming at me at the table, telling me I am going to lose" to which the rapper responded "That I am going to lose? Hold on, you're talking to Ye."

Although Ye has not yet officially filed the paperwork for his candidacy, he has already mentioned on numerous occasions that he would run for president in 2024. Trump filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission formalizing his candidacy for the 2024 election a week after the midterm elections, promising to "make America great and glorious again."
