Donald Trump is ready to get on with his 2024 presidential campaign, but he may not be the only one. It appears Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, is also preparing to run for president. 

Celebrity gossip site X17 shared a video in which Ye introduces the cameraman to alt-right political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos, who he confirms will be “working on the campaign.” He then shows off his political merch, which was “cut” from clothing used in his former lines with Balenciaga, Gap and Adidas.

“Everything we do is gonna cost $20,” he says of the attire. “We need to make sure that everyone can receive the same level of cuts, the same level of food, the same level of water, the same level of education … we’re getting past the past. We’re focused on the future.”

“This is the update. We are the update. That’s all we need to do,” he continued. “As a species, we need to update together. Everything’s been so divisive. Think about when they say ‘diversity’ — people look at that like it’s a good thing, but we’re the United States of America. We’re a universe. We’re a university. We’re a republic.”

In other Kanye news, Julia Fox came clean about her decision to date Ye. Responding to a fan who wished she’d never dated the “famously violent misogynist and antisemite,” she said, “I thought I could help him.”

Though Kanye made headlines for throwing jabs at Kim Kardashian‘s ex Pete Davidson, Fox claimed “he wasn’t on Twitter” or “any forms of social media” during the month they dated. She said she thought, “Oh my god, maybe I can get him off Kim’s case. Maybe I can distract him,” but Ye eventually returned to Twitter; she realized she was “delusional” for having that idea.
