Ye hopped on Twitter on August 14 and shared a touching congratulatory message to Kamala Harris, who was recently selected by Joe Biden as his running mate for the 2020 presidential election.
I know my mom and Kamala Harris would have been friends … congratulations on being the democratic Vice President nominee. … all love and respect from the future president. It’s an honor to run against you.Kanye West
This is the first time West has publicly commented on Biden’s pick for VP, which marks the first Black, Asian American woman on a major party presidential ticket.
Yeezy himself announced his plans to run for president on July 4 and has appeared on ballots in numerous states ever since.
There are rumors that West, who once supported President Donald Trump, entered the presidential race to thwart Biden’s chances of winning the White House.
Trump is denying any involvement.
I like Kanye very much. No, I have nothing to do with him getting on the ballot. We’ll have to see what happens.Kanye West
