When Kanye West and his white nationalist adviser Nick Fuentes dined with Donald Trump last fall, the iconic rapper and quixotic 2024 presidential candidate managed to grab all the wrong kinds of headlines. But since that Mar-a-Lago summit, Kanye West hasn’t managed to grab much attention at all.
As a result, Kanye has reportedly pulled out of the race for President and won’t be running against Biden or Trump in 2024.
“As other Republican presidential hopefuls ramp up their White House bids, West’s political team of far-right influencers has found a new foe: each other,” reports the Daily Beast. “After once working together to elect West — or at least get him more attention through media appearances on fringe outlets like InfoWars — West campaign staffers like Fuentes, Jan. 6 rally organizer Ali Alexander, and British provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos have turned on one another.”
Ye is focusing on other areas of his life per documentary filmmaker Adam Camacho, who says Ye told him: “Right now, I am living my life — like I’m concentrating on the school, The Donda Academy, and my new wife, and my kids, and that’s it. I just want to be left alone.”
Ye recently married Bianca Censori and have been blacklisted by some major industry heads following a number of antisemitic rants.
