Kanye West has officially announced plans for a 2024 presidential run and has hired Milo Yiannopolous as his campaign manager.
In a video posted to Twitter Sunday, West confirmed that Yiannopoulos is working on his campaign.
“This is Milo right here, working on the campaign,” West said in the video posted by “PatriotTakes” Twitter account.
Nypost.com reports: “Is that an announcement?” one of the men asks as they both laugh.
“I guess it is,” Yiannopoulos — who most recently worked as an unpaid intern for right-wing firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene — replied chuckling. “Thanks, I accept.”
The cameraman then asked West, “So you are running?”
“Yes,” Ye answered with a laugh. “It’s simple ’cause ain’t nobody can tell me, you know, ‘you should say this, you shouldn’t say that,’ you know? It’s just we’re moving towards the future.”
West and Yiannopoulos have a shared experience of making horrific remarks and quickly being slammed by the public.
West, who changed his legal name to Ye, tweeted about going “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” in early October and was subsequently banned from the social media platform.
Earlier Sunday, the musician-turned-designer posted a message to his Twitter profile to see if his account was reinstated since Elon Musk took over the company.
