Kanye West is one of the most controversial figures in the world right now. He has been the poster child for controversy for the past several months. Whether it’s the white lives matter controversy or his comments toward Jewish people, West, just can’t seem to keep his name out of the media. Hence, it should come as no surprise that when Kanye announced he will be running for president in 2024, there were no takers.
It looks like Kanye West’s presidential campaign has yet to receive a single donation. The campaign which is officially registered as “Kanye 2020” has reportedly spent over $142,000 in expenses over the last three months.
Kanye West is yet to file his candidacy with the FEC, but he has been vocal about running for president in 2024. Ye also posted a video on Twitter back in November revealing that he asked former President Donald Trump to be his running mate.
During that time, West was working with Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannapoulos. According to a filing submitted Monday, two payments were made to Yiannopoulos for $9,955 and $40,000. West also paid Fuentes $9,026.46 and $5,693,41 in travel reimbursement. Later, Yiannopoulos, who was working as a campaign manager for the rapper, was fired.
This comes after a string of erratic behavior from West who has been in the crosshairs of several people due to his controversial statements and actions. When West ran for President in 2020, he received just 60,000 votes. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News as we keep you updated on this story.
