American rapper Kanye West has come forth to open up about how God was the inspiration behind his presidential bid.
The White House hopeful, 43, gave an interview on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast the place he detailed his political aspirations and the place the concept for him to run for president stemmed from.
“It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV Awards it hit me in the shower. When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul. I felt that energy. I felt that spirit,” he stated.
He went on to say that whereas individuals round him had their reservations concerning the concept, he was undeterred in his ambition and remained focus, with the surety in his thoughts that by the point he joins the race, he can be a billionaire.
“Not that that’s a reason why someone should become president, but it’s to say, you know, at that time I was around 50 million dollars in debt, and I knew I had the confidence that I would be able to turn that around,” stated West.
“When I saw Trump win, [I could see] that you can win if you come from outside of politics,” he added.
“If it’s in God’s plan that part of my path is to be the governor then that’s fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world,” he stated.
