The rapper broke down in tears and screamed “I almost killed my daughter!” which ignited a frenzy of news and articles questioning West’s mental health.

He also calls for voters to be “servants to each other, to lift each other up”.

Elon Musk was an outright supporter initially but has swayed of late and most recently saying “I have not dropped my support for Kanye, although I think 2024 would be better than 2020”, while Katy Perry has been pretty clear she doesn’t think he’s the man for the job saying “the presidential job is best suited for someone with experience and that is a pro in their field. And I think we have seen and learned from experience that when we don’t have pros in position that it can get a little wild …”.
