This is just one of the revelations from a four-hour Forbes interview with rapper / tycoon / political aspirant on Tuesday that was published on Wednesday.
West, who has been widely criticized for supporting President Donald Trump, reportedly said in the publication that he had lost confidence in the commander-in-chief.
“It sounds like a big mess to me,” said West. “I don’t like taking the wind he hid in the bunker. ”
The blacksmith “Closed Sunday” was referring to reports in June that Trump was briefly transferred to an underground bunker during protests at the White House for racial injustice and police brutality.
West’s comments come after he announced he was running for president, although he did not meet the deadlines in several states for participating in the ballot.
He stressed to Forbes that his candidacy is not a publicity stunt and said that he had no problem with the idea that his proposed candidacy could potentially remove votes from the alleged Democratic candidate Joe Biden and assist in the re-election of Trump.
“I’m not denying it, I just told you,” said West. “To say that the black vote is democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy. ”
“I’m not saying that Trump is on my way, he can be part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on, man, please, ”said West. ” You know? Obama’s special. Special from Trump. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people to lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden is not special. ”
One of the reasons the star thinks he will be able to participate in the polls after missing the deadline is because of the coronavirus – a disease he says he contracted in February.
“Chills, tremors in bed, hot showers, videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it,” West explained at the time.
It is not known if West has ever been tested for the virus or antibodies and he said he is praying for a cure, although he is wary of a possible vaccine.
” We pray. We pray for freedom, ”said West, who released his album“ Jesus Is King ”last year and talked about his spiritual awakening. “It’s about God. We have to stop doing things that make God crazy. ”
CNN has contacted West representatives for further comments.
