Kanye West claims that Former President Donald Trump trashed Kim Kardashian in a since-deleted video on Twitter per The New York Post. In the video, West said that supposedly asked Trump to run as his vice-president; West plans to run for president in 2024.
Trump, who announced his 2024 bid earlier this month, dismissed the idea of running alongside West.
“I think the thing Trump was most perturbed about [was] me asking him to be my vice president. I think that was lower on the list of things that caught him off guard,” Ye allegedly said in the video, per TMZ.
The former president then brought up Alice Johnson, the woman whose prison sentence was commuted in 2016 due to lobbying from Kardashian.
“He basically gave me this would-be mob-esque kinda story, [like he was] talking to some kid from the South Side of Chicago trying to sound mobby or whatever,” Ye said in the video. “He goes into the story about all that he went through to get Alice Johnson out of jail but he didn’t do it for Kim but he did for me,” West says in the video.
“But then he goes on to say that Kim is a [expletive] ‘and you can tell her I said that.’ And I was thinking, like, ‘That’s the mother of my children.'”
The conversation between Ye and Trump reportedly occurred recently at Mar-a-Lago where the former president has resided since his loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election. West was accompanied by Nick Fuentes, a well-known white supremecist and antisemite. According to multiple news sources, Trump claimed he didn’t know who Fuentes is.
This will be Kanye West’s second time running for President. He ran in 2020 under the “Birthday Party” and collected just 60,000 votes out of an estimated total of 160 million.
