According to several outlets, celebrity rapper Kanye West announced that he would make a bid in the 2024 presidential elections. Earlier Ye, as he is now known as, had dropped out of the 2020 race as he had received not enough votes. In a video posted on social media, on Sunday the rapper mentioned his plan and named far-right Milo Yiannopoulous, to run his campaign. Former president Donald Trump has already announced his presidential bid, from his residence Mar-A-Lago and President Joe Biden is expected to announce his bid, early next year.
In a video posted by the “PatriotTakes” Twitter account, the 45-year old celebrity says, “This is Milo right here, working on the campaign”, according to an article in the New York Post.
It continues, “Is that an announcement?” one of the men questions as both of them laugh.
“I guess it is.”
“Yiannopoulous replies, “Thanks, I accept.”
Yiannopoulous recently worked for Majorie Taylor Green, a Republican representative from Georgia, who is known to be both controversial as well as proficient in spreading conspiracy theories.
According to the outlet, the cameraman asks Ye, “So you are running?”
