The now deleted tweet came the same day that West spoke in an interview with Forbes in which he not only discussed his presidential race, his opinions on Donald Trump and Joe Biden, but also targeted Planned Parenthood, accusing him to be part of a bigger plot supported by white supremacists.
The media said it believed “Planned Parenthoods were placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the work of the devil.”
West did not develop his opinions on the matter other than saying, “I am pro-life because I am the word of the Bible. ”
In a statement to TMZ on Wednesday, Nia Martin-Robinson – the director of Black Leadership and Engagement at Planned Parenthood National Headquarters – said, “Black women are free to make their own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available. ”

“Any suggestion that abortion is black genocide is offensive and infantilizing,” continued Martin-Robinson. “The real threat to the safety, health and life of black communities stems from the lack of access to affordable and quality health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care by the anti opposition -abortion. ”
Forbes spoke to West from his ranch near Cody, Wyo., In what the magazine called “four hours of rambling questioning.” West, who says he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, often referred to himself in the third person and said he was “one of the most powerful humans”, although he admitted that ‘there were’ many foreign-level superpowers’.
In the same interview, he said his tweet this weekend, in which he said he would run for president against Biden and Trump, was serious. West had previously expressed support for the current president, which led to a meeting with Trump at the Oval Office in 2018. However, he told Forbes that his support for the 45th president had ended.
He said that if he won the presidency, he would model his White House on the fictitious land of “Black Panther”, saying, “Let’s go back to Wakanda. ”
