After rapper Kanye West (43) is serious about candidacy for the US Presidency, it's up to him to comment on political views and think about positions. Last week he also stood for this "Forbes" Q&A. Could the answers he gave here cost him one of his most prominent supporters? As reported by "Page Six", a Twitter user commented in the direction of Elon Musk "Come on, you're too intelligent for this crap". Musk is said to have replied with a link that has since been deleted: "We may have greater disagreements than I originally assumed."
Everything in the making for a long time?
Elon Musk, the 49-year-old founder of Tesla, had originally promised West his "full support", according to West, he and Musk "had been talking about this matter for years". West had previously offered Musk to become chief of the space agency if he should win, as he said "Forbes".
Kanye West expressed his views on various topics in the question and answer post. The rapper, who says he has never voted in his life, calls vaccines "devil's work". He also sees the devil at work when it comes to abortion. A White House that he runs should also run according to the same principles that Wakanda uses in the film "Black Panther" to "achieve alien-like superpowers that we can only achieve collectively".
West builds on loyal "servants of God"
When asked how West intends to raise taxes, he replied: "I haven't dealt with this enough. I'll explore it with the strongest experts who serve God and come back with the best solution. And that's my answer for everything I haven't dealt enough with. I have a button in my ear and I'm going to use it. " Foreign policy? "I haven't developed yet. I'm focused on protecting America with our great military first. We should look at ourselves first."
Even if Musk deleted his tweet again – his followers might be right that given such a political position, it might be difficult for him to support West in the long term.
