Kanye West just announced that he’s still interested in running for president

Rapper and international embarrassment Kanye West is once again discussing his plans to be the leader of the free world. West opened up about his aspirations during a recent interview with a radio station in Chicago.

Back in 2015, during the MTV Video Music Awards, West first stated that he’s interested in becoming POTUS. At the time, he believed he was going to run in 2020.

Now, West says he decides to run, it will be in 2024.

“If I decide to do it, it will be done,” he exclaimed. “I’m not gonna try.”

On policy, Kanye seems to place healthcare at the top of his platform.

“One of my main things, once I’m president, is the medical industry,” he said. “I’m gonna make sure that the medical industry flourishes.”

However, Kanye admits that he isn’t very informed when it comes to policy.

“I don’t know all the policies,” West says. “I don’t agree with everything that any other man does, period. And I’m not particularly left or right. I thought of a name for my party I’d run with – the Birthday Party.”

In the same interview, Kanye opened up about his doctors recently diagnosing him with bipolar disorder. He notes that he hasn’t been taking his meds.

“Let me tell you, I’ve been diagnosed with bipolarity, and I haven’t taken medication in five months and I’m talking to you super calm,” he said. “I get my sleep. I don’t drink a lot of alcohol. I drink a lot of water, I work on my diet and I work on my mind. And I talk and be around people who love me (sic). You need love. The world needs love, especially sensitive people with so-called mental health issues.”

In between announcing his interest in running for president, Kanye has made other headlines in the political world. He received a lot of criticism from the left for wearing a MAGA hat and saying that slavery was a choice. He has now apologized for those antics.

“I don’t know if I properly apologized for how the slavery comment made people feel,” he said.

“I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA [Make America Great Again] hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people who felt let down by that moment.”
