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.”
