Kanye West opened up about his life and presidential plans during an appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.
In the nearly three-hour episode, Kanye said his renewed Christian faith and current run for president were inspired by God.
The rapper said, “It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower. When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul.”
He admitted that famous friends and colleagues either thought he was joking or tried to convince him to not kick off his campaign.
Kanye said he believes his creativity and goal-setting personality makes him a strong contender compared to President Trump and Joe Biden.
If he doesn't win, Kanye’s open to running for governor of California.
Kanye said, “If it's in God's plan that part of my path is to be the governor then that's fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world.”
Kanye plans to run again in 2024. He said,“I'm definitely 100% winning in 2024. I was thinking I would possibly be the Democrat.”
