LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Despite his unsuccessful 2020 presidential campaign, Kanye West has hinted that he is open to entering politics again in a recent interview. The rapper, however, didn't reveal when he plans to run for the president again. 

Talking about his future political aspirations, Kanye, who self-funded his political run in 2020, told ABC News: “Yes, absolutely. You know, that time wasn't in God's time. I'm sure there are lives that were saved. I'm sure God had me fall on the sword and say this is not the time. But he's a redeemer. He's given me this oxygen, he's given me this platform, he's put amazing people around me. He's given me new purposes. A new lease on life. New air to breathe. And a new respect.”

Kanye, whose father struggled with stomach cancer in 2018, declared his intention to strive for a cure as well. He pledged to endeavor and promote "fresh air and food." In October 2018, Kanye declared that in order to commemorate his father Ray's cancer being in remission, he was starting a peculiar diet. “Overcome fear,” Kanye captioned an Instagram photo showing the insects. “My dad and I are going to eat this plate of bugs to celebrate him beating cancer. No more fear.”

He also talked about co-parenting with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian in the extensive interview, admitting that they had disagreements on certain topics but managed to find solutions.

On being asked if social media is helpful or harmful, the rapper had a well-thought answer to it. “That's one of my favorite questions of this interview,” he said. “We can use a car to rush somebody to the hospital. Or we could use a car and accidentally hit somebody while we're rushing somebody to the hospital. It's all about how we use it.”

Kanye has always been vocal about his professional issues or family troubles on social media. Talking about it, he said, “People will call me and say hey, are you OK? And I'm like, well I'm OK now because I said something. But I wasn't OK before with the situation, and that's why I said something. And there are little nuances of what was happening before at Gap. What was happening at Adidas. And what was happening at home. It was all something of a disregard for what I co-created. I co-created the children. I co-created the product at Adidas. I co-created the product at Gap. And I let everyone know that there is actually a through-line, a parallel. And that does touch on discrimination.”
