“I’m not running for President I’m walking for President,” said Kanye West.
So far no one has been taking him seriously but in recent days, he has liberals on full alert being he has enlisted on eight official ballots.
The Dems are furious about his decision to run and falsely claim he is being used by the Trump campaign to steal votes away from Biden.
NEW: Kanye West indicates, in a Forbes interview via text, that he is in fact running to siphon votes from the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden.https://t.co/qVfrH8GtTl

Kanye West was reluctant to attack Trump (who won't attack him), eager to criticize Biden, and all but confirmed his run is designed to harm Biden. So rarely does the quiet part get said out loud as it does in 2020. https://t.co/hHt9YXt2c9

Fox News exclaimed this about Kanye running for President:
Kanye West hinted that his presidential campaign is designed to spoil former Vice President Joe Biden’s bid to unseat President Trump this November, according to a new report.
West and a Forbes editor were exchanging messages Thursday following reports that Republican activists were helping get the billionaire hip-hop star on the ballot in multiple states to help Trump’s reelection and siphon votes away from Biden.
When asked about the motivation for his 2020 ambitions, West replied that he was “walking,” rather than running.
West filed paperwork to appear on the ballot in eight states, which alone are not enough to meet the Electoral College threshold of 270 votes.
When confronted with those numbers and the idea that his effort would serve as a Biden spoiler, West reportedly texted back, “I’m not going to argue with you.”
When again asked about hurting Biden’s campaign, “I’m not denying it; I just told you,” he replied, according to the report.
He also tweeted in late July that he could “beat Biden off of write-ins,” although historically that would be unprecedented.
At least four GOP-linked campaign operatives have made efforts to help get West onto the ballots in multiple states, including in potential battlegrounds like Wisconsin and Ohio, the New York Times reported Monday.
Trump spoke about Kanye West running for President in his press conference:
So far, Kanye has had no animosity towards Trump, let’s hope Kanye does take some votes away from Biden. Anyone who receives a lot of hate and backlash from the Democratic Party is probably doing something right.
