You, the rap music artist formerly known as Kanye West, on Thursday released his first campaign video for an unlikely presidential bid in 2024, criticizing former President Donald Trump.
In a video posted to Twitter, Ye shared that he had previously offered Trump to be his vice presidential running mate, a comment Ye said left Trump confused and disappointed.
“I think that’s what Trump was most worried about. [was] I’m asking him to be my vice president,” you said in the video. “I think that was low on the list of things that made him wary.”
The comments were made during a “debrief” session about a White House visit and meeting with then-President Trump in October 2018.

In Thursday’s campaign video, Ye also challenged Trump for not acting to legally protect those who attacked the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, while he was in office.
The owner of the “Yeezy” clothing brand said he “proceeded intelligently” during the meeting “as someone who loves Trump” and urged him to listen more to his loyalists.
“He basically gives me the story of everything he did to get Alice Johnson out of prison and how he didn’t do it for Kim. [Kardashian] But he did it for me,” you recall in the video.
Johnson, 63, was pardoned by Trump in 2018.
The music mogul also claimed the former president yelled at him and insulted his then-wife Kim Kardashian. The two separated in March 2022.

“Has he worked for anyone in history?” you joked

He has not formally announced his intention to run, although he has previously commented that he would seek to run for president in 2024.

He added: “Just as I promised in 2016, I am your voice. I am your voice. The establishment in Washington wants to silence us, but we will not let them do that.
