Kanye West Asks Trump to Be His Running Mate in 2024

Could Kanye West and Donald Trump be on the Republican ticket together? Kanye West said he asked former president Donald Trump to be his running mate in the 2024 presidential election.  

Ye, the controversial rapper formerly known as Kanye West, says he met Trump at his Florida estate Mar-a-Lago this week. 

West’s Twitter account was restored this week after new Twitter owner Elon Musk began reinstating people who were suspended from the social media platform. The suspensions of accounts occur after violating the platform’s terms of usage, especially against its violence clauses. 

West had been suspended over antiseptic content. He had threatened to go “death con 3 on the Jews”. The rapper’s Twitter rant was posted just days after he wore a shirt emblazoned with the words “White Lives Matter” to his Yeezy fashion show. 

Restored back on Twitter, West tweeted about visiting Mar-a-Lago to pitch Trump on joining his ticket. 

“First time at Mar-a-Lago. Rain and traffic. Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting. And I had on jeans. Yikes,” West tweeted.

He then polled his followers what they think Trump’s response was when he asked him to be his running mate in 2024: ‘That’s very Ye’ or “That’s very Nay’. 

West was spotted at Mar-a-Lago with alt-right figure and white nationalist Nick Fuentes. 

Fuentes is well-known for being a participant at the 2017 white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. This rally turned violent when an avowed neo-Nazi drove his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring 35 people. 

Fuentes also hosts an online show during which he is known to make anti-Semitic comments. Ye, too, has flirted with anti-Semitism and far-right ideas.

It is not the first time Trump and West have met. The two have been together several times, including in October 2018, when they also met with Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
