A speech difficult to follow
He said he wanted his wife Kim Kardashian, then pregnant with their daughter North, to have an abortion, then spoke about his father. “My father wanted my mother to abort me. My mother saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West because my father was too busy, “said the rapper, starting to cry. He then spoke unintelligibly for a minute and then shouted, ” I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter! ».
Elsewhere in his speech, he argued that the famous American abolitionist ” Harriet Tubman never really freed slaves, she just made slaves work for other white people ” Portions of this speech went viral on social media, and caused turmoil, anger and concerns about the singer’s mental health.
Kanye West announced his candidacy on Twitter on July 4. He wore a red “Make America Great Again” cap during a meeting with Donald Trump at the White House in 2018, but has since assured that he no longer supported the president. The rapper has passed the deadline to be on the official list of candidates in several states, but he is on that of Oklahoma.
