Kanye West has said he is ready to return to politics, insisting he was not deterred by his failed 2020 presidential bid.
The rapper, whose father battled stomach c*ncer in 2018, said he plans to work toward a cure for the disease.
He said he would work on promoting ‘fresh air and food’.
In October 2018, West said that his father Ray’s c*ncer was in remission, and that he was embarking on a strange diet to celebrate.
‘Get over the fear,’ Kanye captioned an Instagram photo featuring insects. ‘My dad and I are going to eat this plate of worms to celebrate beating c*ncer. No more fear.’
He opened up about his co-parenting in a wide-ranging interview with ex-wife Kim Kardashian, saying they used to fight over certain issues, but worked to resolve them.
Asked on Thursday if he had future political aspirations, West replied: ‘Yes, of course.
‘You know, that time was not in God’s time. I believe there are lives that have been saved.
“I believe God put me on the sword and said this is not the time,” he told ABC News on Thursday night.
‘But he is a saviour. He’s given me this oxygen, he’s given me this platform, he’s surrounded me with amazing people.
‘It has given me new goals. A new lease on life. New air to breathe. And a new respect.’
He added that he is spending time with Jared Kushner.
Kanye West has spoken to ABC News, in an interview that premiered Thursday night.
His brother said he would kill him if he went back to the White House. That’s the answer,’ replied West, when asked if it was genuine friendship or a political ploy.
West said he had met Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and thought ‘he would make a really good president, too.’
Linsey Davies asked: ‘Apart from you?’
Maghrib replied with a smile.
Davis asked her if she thought social media was helpful or harmful to her.
‘That’s one of my favorite questions of this interview,’ West said.
‘We can use the car to take someone to the hospital. Or when we are taking someone to the hospital, we can use a car and accidentally hit someone.
‘It’s all about how we use it.’

West was asked about his parenting style, and what it’s like to co-parent with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
She filed for divorce in February 2021 and their separation was finalized in June this year.
The couple have four children – daughter North, nine; six-year-old son Saint; daughter Chicago, four, and three-year-old son Psalm.
‘I have a voice, and I disagree with some things, as a father and as a Christian,’ he said.
‘I have a right to what my children are wearing, what they are watching, what they are eating.’
His comments come weeks after he accused his ex-wife and the Kardashian family’s streaming giant partner Hulu of railroading him into choosing when the children go to school.
He compared himself to a sperm donor, argued that he had been left unsaid, and resented the fact that the children were attending an expensive private school in Los Angeles when he wanted them to attend his school, Go to Donda Academy, set. In honor of his late mother.
‘I have a platform, and I will say what many fathers cannot say out loud. There are many situations where a whole family can go in and basically take control of the kids.
‘I know a lot of people who hit me up, like, outside of Chicago, and say: Yo, I’ve been through the same thing as you.
‘People will call me and say hey, are you okay? And I’m like, well I’m fine now because I said something. But I wasn’t okay with the situation before, and that’s why I said something.
‘And there are very few nuances of what was going on in the gap before that. What was happening at Adidas? And what was happening at home.
‘It was going to ignore everything I had built together.
‘I made the children together. I co-created the product at Adidas. I co-created the product at Gap.
‘And I tell everyone that there is actually a through line, a parallel.
‘And it touches on discrimination.’
