American rapper and husband of TV star Kim Kardashian Kanye West, who registered as a presidential candidate in the Oklahoma State Election Commission, held his first meeting with the public. The recording of his speech was published on YouTube by the WCBD television company.
The meeting took place at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, South Carolina. The performer was wearing a bulletproof vest with the word Security, and the number 2020 was shaved on the back of his head. During his speech, he touched upon several different topics, including international trade, licensing rights, and abortion.
Talking about the topic of abortion, West talked about how his father was against his birth, but his mother saved his life.
“There would be no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,” he said. After these words, the musician burst into tears.
According to West, those who give birth should receive financial support.
“Everyone who has a child receives a million dollars. I don’t have the funding to do this, but I have a platform to come up with an idea, ”West said.
He also supported the idea of the country’s powerful potential.
Kanye West announced his intention to run for the US presidency in early July. Prior to that, he also spoke about his intention to run for the US leadership in 2015 at the MTV Video Music Awards.
On July 15, the US Federal Election Commission accepted West’s application for registration as a presidential candidate from the The Birthday Party, which he created.
The current American President Donald Trump approved the musician’s desire to run for president.
