Kanye West Announces His Presidential Running Mate


Kanye is really serious about running for president. He did a interview with Forbes and announced his running mate as well as his campaign slogan. Here are some key points from the Forbes interview:

  • he Birthday Party—with guidance from Elon Musk and an obscure vice presidential candidate he’s already chosen. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life,” says West, “I’m doing to win.”
  • That he no longer supports President Trump. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.”

He has chosen his running mate – a preacher that no one has ever heard of before. In a complete Forbes profile, the 'Stronger' singer and acclaimed rapper revealed that he had chosen Michelle Tidball, an unknown preacher from Wyoming, as his running mate.

Tidball teaches an online bible (Abundant Ministries) school near Kanye's ranch. She shares his religious views. In her bio, she says she has several degrees including Mental Health and Criminal Justice.

In addition, West said in the interview that his 2020 election campaign slogan would be “YES!”

“Well, my second album is called Late Registration. I got a rap … The other thing is, my campaign is Kanye West YES, not YEP, not YEAH. YES. YES. YES... When I’m president, let’s also have some fun. Let’s get past all the racism conversation, let’s empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let’s give some land, that’s the plan," West said.
