Kanye West met with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner last weekend, according to a new report, after launching a presidential campaign that he has openly indicated was aiming to siphon votes from Joe Biden.
The artist announced a presidential campaign earlier this year that has faced significant legal battles amid reports of seemingly-identical signatures on petitions which West created for his name to appear on state ballots in the November election.
He has received help from GOP operatives, and he reportedly “expressed comfort” with his campaign undermining the former vice president’s bid for the White House in a recent interview with Forbes.
When asked by the magazine about possibly hurting the presumptive Democratic nominee’s odds of unseating President Donald Trump in the upcoming vote, West replied: “I’m not denying it; I just told you.”
He also said Mr Trump was “the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation” in that same interview.
The meeting, first reported by the New York Times on Wednesday, took place in Colorado last weekend.
