Kanye West’s presidential campaign received no contributions
Despite the high stakes of Kanye West’s presidential campaign, no one is willing to take any chances.
Ye became a potential political force after appearing to announce his intention to run for the White House in 2024 in a video posted last November. The since-deleted clip featured the “Ye 24” logo, hinting at his intention to become the next president of the United States.
The rapper followed it up with another video detailing his dinner with former President Donald Trump and white supremacist Nick Fuentes at the former’s Mar-a-Lago club. Unfortunately, West’s association with these two men appears to be doing more harm than good to his campaign.
Kanye West is yet to receive a dime in donations to his ‘Kanye 2020’ presidential campaign
Since his first announcement for the 2020 presidency, Ye has continued to double down on his intentions. But his plan was immediately fraught with challenges, including one campaign event in which he confessed deeply personal details about his family.
Also, a new update from here The Daily Beast revealed that the rapper’s problems include a lack of money from supporters. Simply put, the father of four he didn’t get a cent from anyone to help him with his campaign work over the past year.
According to a campaign finance report obtained after the store filed Monday, Ye spent out of pocket, racking up more than $142,000 in expenses.
One itemized release showed the “Jesus Walks” rapper paid Fuentes more than $9,000 in “travel expenses” on the same day he and Trump dined with a fourth guest, Milo Yiannopoulos. The political commentator and his team reportedly covered travel expenses when he “moved to Los Angeles in November to work on Kanye 2020.”
The presidential candidate then sent Yiannopoulos $40,000 for “campaign summary services” in mid-December after he was fired from Yeezy. The far-right extremist also received roughly $10,000 for a “domain transfer” on the same day as the infamous Mar-a-Lago dinner.
Shortly after he was fired, Yiannopoulos claimed that he and Ye had come to a “mutual conclusion” that he was “going to step down” amid tensions between them. The fashion designer then hired “Sneako,” a YouTuber known for his racist comments and behavior.
The move came as no surprise as the ‘Flashing Lights’ hitmaker had just days earlier pledged his support and praised Adolf Hitler. “Well, I see good things about Hitler. Every man has a value that he brought to the table, especially Hitler,” he praised on GMA’s Dove Award winner Alex Jones.
Still reeling from campaign drama, Ye last month replaced his campaign treasurer with Patrick Krason — a professional treasurer. The new role provided Krason’s company with a $40,000 salary to cover expenses such as travel, archival video services, web services and legal fees.
The windfall also included $10,000 for office and campaign equipment. The firm, known as GSF, also received thousands of dollars in compliance fees from Ye and is said to have ties to veteran Republican aides.
The Roc-A-Fella Records alum spoils his new bride with Balenciaga Fits
The explosion in a recent report observed Ye taking his alleged new wife, Bianca Censori, on a shopping spree. The pair were snapped checking out the goods at the Balenciaga store in Beverly Hills, despite the drama surrounding the rapper and the fashion house.
For the trip, Ye donned her signature all-black ensemble, which she paired with matching black boots, while Censori opted for an oversized yellow jacket and black thigh-high boots.
The fashion label parted ways with the record producer after he made a series of anti-Semitic comments on Twitter. However, the tables turned when Balenciaga released an ad campaign featuring children in BDSM-inspired clothing.
The brand has since apologized, saying they had no “intention” to include such controversial elements in their “narrative”. On the other hand, Ye did not back down from his anti-Semitism.
As for her marriage to Censori, the couple reportedly walked down the aisle in a secret ceremony earlier this month. While the couple exchanged rings during their wedding, they have yet to make their marriage legal by submitting a marriage certificate.
According to the new bride’s LinkedIn profile, she has worked at Yeezy for more than two years as an architectural designer.
