You’re allowed to change your mind. And even though Kanye has finally dumped Trump we can’t bash the man… too hard.
He’s doubled down on his own presidential campaign but pulled support from Trump. No longer donning the MAGA hat, he has lost faith in him, calling the presidency “one big mess.”
Kanye dumps Trump to run for president (LOL)
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

While many have been concerned with President West, others have speculated how serious he is. It’s not unlike him to make ridiculous claims for attention. What we more likely have here is what he wishes would manifest.
Telling Forbes Magazine that he will run under “The Birthday Party,” his stances tend to be Christian in base. “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday,” he says, but would it be?
It’s always your Birthday Party Ye
Claiming Planned Parenthoods “have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work,” there might be an underlying agenda.
Should he actually run, his votes would take away from the front-running candidates. “I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
Kanye is right, in that people of any color or background can choose how to vote. Relying on any one party is to set oneself up for false hope.
He is right about one thing: the candidate needs star power, which he thinks he can bring. “Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
With Ye’s level of charisma, it’s possible.
But again, how serious is this?
Kanye is yet to register with the Federal Elections Commission and has missed the deadline in four states. Even with endorsements from his wife Kim Kardashian and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, it will likely be Wacka Flocka part two.

We all know Kanye to make bold claims that land him in hot water. Usually, these claims don’t fall too far from a release of some kind.
Ye insists that none of this is publicity for a new album. Whether there’s a surprise project in the works is to be revealed.
Keeping being Kanye, Kanye.
