Kanye West says he asked Trump to be his 2024 running mate

Since we’re talking teams. Did you hear about Kanye West and Donald Trump Teaming up as running mates for possible 2024 election.

Well, Ye posted a video on Twitter speaking about the time he did asked Trump to join his campaign.

Ye said in the video “I think the thing that Trump was most perturbed about, me asking him to be my vice president,” and added  “I think that was like lower on the list of things that caught him off-guard.”

It seems like Trump wasn’t happy about it because Ye said, “When Trump started basically screaming at me at the table telling me I was going to lose — I mean has that ever worked for anyone in history.” Ye’s response, “I’m like hold on, hold on, hold on, Trump, you’re talking to Ye.”

Can you imagine a West / Trump Ticket.

I don’t even want to think about it.
