A new report by theNew York Timesconfirmed what some already suspected -- Kanye’s presidential campaign has some ties to the Republican Party.
Even though Yeezy would be running as an independent on the “Birthday Party” ticket, allegedly there's key “Republican operatives” linked to Donald Trump who're working to support Kanye’s campaign. The idea is that running Kanye would help split the potential Democratic vote and give Trump a better chance at winning reelection.
Trump spoke on Kanye’s candidacy at a press briefing yesterday (Wednesday), “I like Kanye very much… I have nothing to do with him being on the ballot. I'm not involved.“
John Legend called attention to what was going on behind the scenes at the Yeezy 2020 campaign, telling his Twitter followers, “Just in case anyone needs some clarity around what’s happening here… Anyone reckless and/or misinformed enough to fall for the okey doke probably wasn’t voting for [Joe]Biden(or voting at all).” (NY Times)
