Kanye West is still insisting that he is going to run for US President in this year’s elections, despite missing the deadline to stand in at least some states. Yesterday Forbes published an interview in which the rapper outlined some of his political plans – noting that he is currently being advised on such matters by his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, and Elon Musk.

Here are ten things he says in the interview:

“I am taking the red hat off”.

“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation”.

“We need to stop doing things that make God mad”.

“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of Heaven”.

“The Pope, I hope, can only be scared by God”.

“It hit me to say, ‘you’re going to run for president’, and I started laughing hysterically”.

“I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”

“I don’t know if I would use the word ‘policy’ for the way I would approach things”.

“One of my to-do lists is to end police brutality”.

“Clean up the chemicals. In our deodorant, in our toothpaste, there are chemicals that affect our ability to be of service to God”.

Actually, one of those wasn’t a Kanye quote, it was a Donald Trump quote. If you can guess which one, then you win the opportunity to be the first person to say “well, of course, we all thought Trump was a joke candidate” when West wins in November.
