West, who is on a campaign run in hopes to become the next president of the United States, said he is interested in meeting up with other candidates despite their political parties. As of now, he said he is willing to have a sit down with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. He even had wishes to talk to Bernie Sanders, but was allegedly rejected.
One of the meetings that drew fans’ attention was his encounter with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. When the two met in Colorado last month, people questioned the intention behind the “secret” meeting.
West said that he met with Kushner after he was unable to get his hands on Dr. Claud Anderson’s “Powernomics,” a book about Black empowerment, but made it clear he owes no explanation.
“I don’t care if we got ice cream, I can meet with whoever I want,” he said. “You know why? Because I’m free, so many people are just not free. I have the freedom to vote for whoever I want. I have the freedom to meet with whoever I want.”
When asked whether he thinks becoming the president is a “realistic goal,” West told Cannon, “God has made unreal things happen.”
Big Sean also believes it is possible for his mentor to win the election. In an interview with Vulture, he said, “There have been so many times where he [West] says something people may have thought was crazy, and I’ve seen him execute it,” he said. “I was there when he was in debt for millions. He believed in himself, and now he’s out of debt.”
