isn’t dropping out of the presidential race yet — the rapper congratulated VP candidate Kamala Harris saying, “It’s an honor to run against you.”
“I know my mom and Kamala Harris would have been friends,” West, 43, tweeted on Saturday of his late mother Donda West. “Congratulations on being the democratic Vice President nominee… all love and respect from the future president. It’s an honor to run against you.”
On Tuesday, Joe Biden, who is running for president, chose California senator Kamala Harris as his running mate, calling her “a fearless fighter for the little guy.”
West launched his presidential campaign on the Fourth of July with a tweet: “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States” and the hashtag #2020Vision.
The rapper, who is married to Kim Kardashian, since campaigned in South Carolina, making a shocking speech that claimed his father wanted to abort him. “My mom saved my life,” he said. West also shared that him and Kardashian discussed abortion during her pregnancy with first daughter, North, 7.
“So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to,” said West. The pair, who wed in 2014, share three other children: Saint, 4, Chicago, 2 and Psalm, 14 months.
