Kanye West Still Believes He Will Be President One Day
Kanye West believes he will one day be the President of the United States.
Yeezy sat down with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio for an interview that aired on Thursday (Oct. 24). Amid talks of his new album Jesus Is King (and how he asked contributors to the project to abstain from premarital sex during the recording process), Kanye revealed that he has plans to run for President.
"There will be a time when I will be the President of the U.S. and I will remember...any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing," Kanye said.
The rapper has been open about his relationship with and support of the current POTUS Donald Trump, which recently caused an Atlanta church to decide to redirect the money that Kanye donated to them because they do not support Trump. Instead, the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church opted to give the money to Morris Brown College—the HBCU where Kanye’s mom, the late Dr. Donda West, taught at as a professor.
“To say that you unashamedly support Donald Trump...he called the mother continent of Africa a collection of s-hole nations. Smacking the entire diaspora in the year of the anniversary of the year of the return," the church's pastor Jamal Bryant said. "I don’t align with the statements of Kanye West. I don’t endorse it, nor do I subscribe to it. And I am not a runaway slave. To that end, Mr. West made a significant donation to New Birth Cathedral. But I do not want to be guilty of double speech. I met with my team today and the donation that he made to our church, I am now redirecting. I’m going to be giving that donation he gave to Morris Brown College.”
Jesus Is King is set to be released on Friday (Oct. 25).
