Elon Musk has revealed that he urged Kanye West to run for president in 2024. He told The New York Times, “I’ve done my best to convince him that 2024 would be better than 2020.” However, after Kanye went on a Twitter rant last week, inciting the trend, #prayforye, Musk said that he reached out to the music and fashion icon.
He said, “When he was about a third of the way through the tweet rampage, just to see if he was doing okay, I sent him a text saying, ‘You know, just checking on you, a lot of people are worried, just wondering if you’re okay.'”
He continued, “And he called me back and he actually seemed fine. He FaceTimed me and he was in Wyoming with a bunch of friends. He seemed fine on the call. But it sounds like things are, you know, not fine. There seem to be a lot of issues.”
Meanwhile, according to TMZ, the rep for the Secretary of State in Missouri says that Kanye submitted signatures to get on the ballot before the 5pm deadline yesterday (June 27th). Kanye will need 10,000 signatures from registered voters in the state.
In other news, Kim Kardashian was spotted with Kanye in Cody, Wyoming yesterday (July 27th).
