Kanye West Launches Unconventional Bid For Presidency
People Are Questioning Kanye West's Election Campaign
2020 is full of surprises. In a bizarre turn of events, entertainment mogul and rapper Kanye West announced that he is running for President of the United States of America. The rapper announced that he is a Presidential candidate, just four months before the Presidential Elections.
It is being reported that Kanye West has not even filed his candidature papers with the Federal Election Commission or created a campaign committee.
The 43-year-old rapper has now officially launched his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, with an unorthodox rally in Charleston, South Carolina.
The name of Kanye West's political party is weird enough, "Birthday Party". The former Trump supporter launched his campaign with a rambling and emotional speech.
Kanye West revealed how he had wanted his wife, Kim Kardashian, to get an abortion when she was pregnant with North, their oldest daughter. He then revealed his father also wanted to abort him.
"My dad wanted to abort me. My mum saved my life. There would've been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,"
He then proceeded to shout:
"I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter! Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn't want to."

People have questioned Kanye West's last-minute Presidential bid and labeled it as a promotional stunt by the rapper.
Kanye West has missed the deadline in several ket states to be listed on the presidential ballot, although his name has been listed on the ballot in Oklahoma and he needs 10,000 signatures before Monday to be eligible.
