Kanye is anti-abortion and against vaccines even after contracting Covid-19 as they are 'mark of the beast'
In an interview with Forbes, the musician laid out a blueprint of what a presidency under him would look like
On the Fourth of July, Kanye West announced his run for president of America in 2020. “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION,” the 43-year-old wrote on Twitter. His announcement lit the internet on fire, with many of his supporters including his wife Kim Kardashian and friend Elon Musk supporting him. “You have my full support!” tweeted Musk after West announced his candidacy for the 2020 presidential elections.
However, the fashion designer was criticized for announcing a candidacy this late. Experts also claimed that West's attempt to run for office did not appear to be serious and might be a mere publicity stunt. But on Tuesday, July 8, in an interview with Forbes, West confirmed that he was indeed running for president. In the wide-ranging interview, the ‘Jesus is King’ singer also shared his views on the Covid-19 vaccine and his stand on abortion.
During the four hour interview, West claimed that he contracted coronavirus in February. “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I'm supposed to do to get over it,” he described his experience with the deadly virus. “I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”
In the interview, the rapper also clarified that his Covid-19 illness had nothing to do with his run for the presidency. “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I'm not crazy. Between all of the influences and the positions that we can be put in as musicians… It can drive you crazy, through all of that I was looking crazy because it wasn’t the time. Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.”
But, West revealed his doubts over the coronavirus vaccine as he called it the “mark of the beast”. “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast,” the composer said.
He added: “They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I'm sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it.”
Along with these, West also opened up about his view on another important topic - abortion - and it seemed he is very much like his opponent, Donald Trump. “I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the bible,” he told Forbes.
