Elon Musk Backtracks from Support of Kanye West's Presidential Bid

Elon Musk told Kanye West he had his “full support” when the rapper announced he plans to run for president — but things appear to have changed.

After reading Kanye’s latest interview with Forbes, Elon has had a change of heart.

Following the publication of the Q&A, — where West announced that he’s never voted in his life, plans to run the White House like Wakanda and believes vaccines are “the mark of the beast” — Twitter user John Crowley responded to Musk’s original tweet with a link to a story, writing, “Cmon Elon – you’re way too intelligent for this BS.”

In the same interview, West said he no longer supports President Trump and also sounded off against the Democratic Party.In a now-deleted tweet, Musk responded, “We may have more differences of opinion than I anticipated.”

“That is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control to say that all Black people need to be Democrat and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote. All of that information is being charged up on social media platforms by Democrats.

“And Democrats used to tell me, the same Democrats have threatened me … The reason why this is the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump my music career would be over. I was threatened into being in one party.

“I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic Party. And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black,” he said.

We’re not taking Kanye’s plans seriously and neither should you.
