American rapper Kanye west called on black Americans not to vote for Democrats while attending a New York City event on Thursday.
The story: “Own your power. Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives. That’s not the power,” said the 42-year-old rapper at the WSJ. Innovator Awards, who has previously declared his support for President Donald Trump.
“The power is when I talk to my lawyer … I put on my trench coat and said, ‘We’re moving these factories to America, and that’s how it’s going to be’ — and it’s lovely,” he added, according to Page Six.

During the event, Kanye also said that he will “run for president in 2024.”
“When I run for president in 2024, we’re going to definitely- yo whatchu all laughing at?” Kanye said as the crowd laughed. “When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that, in fact, I’m going to walk.
“What I’m saying is, when y’all read the headlines, ‘Kanye’s crazy,’ this and that, this and that, it’s like one in three African Americans are in jail and all of the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing! They’ve got no opinion! They’re so scared!”
