Kanye West has expounded on the policy platform he will use in his bid to become the 47th president of the United States come November.
Kanye has retaliated his skepticism for the COVID-19 vaccine and has affirmed that he will return the “Fear and Love of God” in the education system.
Speaking to Forbes, Kanye announced that he would run for president under the birthday party banner, “because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.” His campaign slogan is seen as a shorter version of Obama’s “Yes We Can,” with his reading “YES.”
Kanye has missed deadlines to appear as a candidate in the election in several states. Nonetheless, he said he should be added as a latecomer, arguing that the coronavirus pandemic was the reason for his late submission to appear on the ballot.
He added that he was going to speak with the Whitehouse, Jared Kushner, and Joe Biden to make his candidature a reality. However, he somewhat critical about Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee.
According to him, Obama, Bill Clinton, and Trump are special in their own way, and America needs leaders who are special. He, nevertheless, said that Joe Biden is not special.
Kanye’s campaign has a number of well-known advisers. They include Tesla Founder Elon Musk, and his wife, the music icon and TV star Kim Kardashian-West. Speaking about Musk, Kanye said that he would appoint him to head the country’s space program.
Kanye said that his win as president, whether in 2020 or 2024, would be “God’s appointment.” He praised Trump, saying, “Trump is one of the closest presidents we have had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
Previously, West voiced his support for President Trump, and even wore his (Trump’s) Make America Great Again hats. According to Kanye, he wore a red hat as a gripe to the segregation of votes in African-American communities. However, he also criticized Trump recently.
When asked about the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, Kanye said that many children across the United States were vaccinated and paralyzed. Therefore, he is cautious when it comes to fixing the virus with a vaccine. He went ahead to term a vaccine as “the mark of the beast.”
He added that vaccines were meant to insert chips inside people to make it impossible for them to cross the gates of heaven.
“COVID-19 is all about God. We should stop doing things that make God angry.” He added.
Kanye also confirmed that he might have contracted the virus in February. “I had chills and was shaking in bed. I had to take hot showers and watch videos that would tell me what to do to get over it.” He said.
Police Brutality has been rampant throughout the United States, especially towards the black community. Kanye said that he intended to end police brutality, but he was quick to add that “police are people too.” he also said he was pro-life and opposed death penalties because he was following Bible teachings.
On education, Kanye said he would restore the fear of God in school and organizations.
Distracting Biden’s Bid?
Different quotas have criticized Kanye’s bid as a strategy to distract Biden’s campaign. When asked about this, Kanye said that it was a form of white supremacy and racism to say that blacks should be democrats. He also termed the sentiments that he was trying to split the vote as a form of white control.
Kanye’s presidential bid comes when he is preparing to release his 10th studio album, dubbed Gods Country. Last week, he released the first single from this album called Wash Us in the Blood.
