Kanye West says he is no longer supporting President Donald Trump, as he has formed his new party which he calls the Birthday Party.

Kanye told Forbes in an interview that he is "taking off the red hat." He said he liked Trump because of his hotels but he did not like it when Trump hid in a secret White House bunker in June while protesters stormed the White House.

“One of the main reasons I wore the red hat as a protest to the segregation of votes in the Black community. Also, other than the fact that I like Trump hotels and the saxophones in the lobby.”

“One time I talked to Jared Kushner who was saying we don’t have Black leaders, we just have hustlers. Why? Because they killed all the black leaders.”

“I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there.”

“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”

According to Kanye, he hates the fact that Democrats assume all black people have to vote for them and he would not mind taking black votes off Democrats.

"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 celebrity 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.”

“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”

Kanye said he has got some unconventional ideas to help get him there as he'll be running with a new party called the Birthday Party, because ... "[W]hen we win, it’s everybody’s birthday." and that Elon Musk will help with his campaign.
