Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Met with Kanye West, Who’s Running for President

HeadlineAug 14, 2020

President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has confirmed that he and Ivanka Trump recently met in Colorado with hip-hop star Kanye West, who has launched a longshot run for president. Speculation is growing that Kanye West’s campaign is part of a coordinated Republican effort to siphon votes from Joe Biden and help Trump win reelection. The New York Times reports Republican lawyers have assisted West in getting on the ballot in Arkansas, Colorado, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin. West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, recently revealed he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She said, “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.”
