Rapper Kanye West signaled he no longer supports U.S. President Donald Trump and said he had entered the presidential race to win it, in an interview published on Wednesday.
West, previously a vocal supporter of Trump, announced on Saturday that he would run for president in 2020.
“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.
“Like anything I’ve ever done in my life, I’m doing this to win,’’ West told Forbes, referring to Trump’s trademark red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap.
He told the magazine he would run under a new banner, the Birthday Party.
West and his reality TV star wife, Kim Kardashian West, have visited Trump in the White House.
He, however, denied that his aim was to split the Black vote and hurt the chances of Trump’s Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.
“It was a form of racism and white supremacy to suggest all Black people should support the Democrats’’ he said.
