Kanye West announces 2024 presidential bid amid far-right ties | Kanye West

The rapper and designer formerly known as Kanye West has said he plans to run for president in 2024, which would make him the second announced candidate after Donald Trump.

The announcement follows a series of scandals and far-right associations for the 45-year-old star, who now goes to Ye. The day before, sportswear giant Adidas had announced that it had launched an investigation into allegations that he had harassed former employees. Rolling Stone magazine reported allegations by Adidas employees working on the rapper’s Yeezy shoe line that he used “pornography, bullying and mental games” to create a “toxic environment” at the company.

The revelation came on the heels of several fashion brands, including Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga, bringing down the 45-year-old star over anti-Semitic comments he made online.

He was also dropped by a talent agent, lawyers, and record company. Yi later said he lost “two billion dollars in one day”.

The presidential race is his second. During his first participation, in 2020, he qualified for ballot access in only 12 states, unsuccessfully sued for access to five more, and forfeited four times and missed registration deadlines in 29 other states.

He held a highly emotional rally in South Carolina speaking out for his anti-abortion views, financed two television commercials, and eventually received only 70,000 votes across the United States.

Ye was announced as a second run for the White House through a video of his campaign slogan on social media titled “Ye24”. In it, he claimed to have asked Donald Trump to be his running mate, a proposal that “bothered” the former president the most.

The thing that worried Trump the most [is] Kanye said in a video posted to his recently opened Twitter account. “I think that was, like, at the bottom of his list of things that amazed him.”

“It was the fact that I entered cleverly,” Ye added.

In a “Ye24” Twitter post, the rapper said he advised Trump to “go and get these people the media tried to take down,” with flashes of Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Roger Stone and InfoWars supporter Alex Jones.

Several days earlier, Yi was seen in the company of white nationalist Nick Fuentes at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and country club.

Yee recently told far-right British commentator Milo Yiannopoulos that he was “working on the campaign,” which Yiannopoulos said he saw as a campaign advertisement. On Thursday, Yee indicated that he had named Yiannopoulos as his 2024 campaign manager.
