Kanye West Confirms 2024 U.S Presidential Run: Look + Listen

On Sunday (11.20,) Kanye West was approached by a Los Angeles photographer working for X17 Online Crenshaw when he introduced far-right political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos as his campaign manager. 

“This is Milo right here, working on the campaign,” he said in the video, which was posted on YouTube. When asked if that was an announcement, they both laughed and Milo confirmed, “I guess it is. Thanks, I accept.” 

Ye invited the photographer to his workspace and showed off merchandise bearing the slogan “YE24”.  The cameraman then asked Kanye, “So you are running?” and he replied, “Yes. It’s simple ’cause ain’t nobody can tell me, you know, ‘You should say this, you shouldn’t say that,’ you know? It’s just we’re moving towards the future.”

West, who recently lost several key business partnerships after making antisemitic remarks in October, ran for U.S. president as an independent candidate in 2020, and after receiving some 70,000 votes, ultimately lost to Joe Biden. 

Yiannopoulos disappeared from the spotlight in 2017 after he seemingly advocated for paedophilia but returned to the public eye in the summer when he served as an intern for right-wing politician Marjorie Taylor Greene. 

Kanye will be running against former U.S. President Donald Trump, who announced his 2024 presidential bid last week.
