    Kanye West has published his presidential platform

    Earlier this year, the 43-year-old rapper announced he was planning on running for US president at the upcoming 2020 election in November, and on Monday (10.08.20), he finally launched his 10-point presidential platform on a brand new website dedicated to his campaign


    Kanye’s platform - which details the formal set of principal goals he hopes to achieve if he wins the election - can be found at kanye2020.country, and features points including his desire to bring prayer back to classrooms, reform the police, seek racial justice in the courts, and promote “creativity and the arts”.

    The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker also hopes to “restore the sound national economy” as well as reduce student loan debt, restructure the education system, and prioritise renewable energy resources.

    Kanye punctuated each of the points on his website with a quote from the Bible.

    The website also allows visitors to donate between $20 and $1000 to his political party, as well as sign up with their email address and phone number to show their support for his campaign.

    Kanye hosted his first presidential campaign rally in South Carolina last month, where he broke down in tears as he spoke about his thoughts on abortion, and admitted he and his wife Kim Kardashian West had considered terminating her first pregnancy.

    Days later, Kanye launched a scathing rant against his 39-year-old spouse on social media, in which he accused her of "trying to lock him up" over concerns for his mental health.

    The Yeezy founder also claimed he had been trying to divorce Kim - with whom he has North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 15 months - for two years, after she met with fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.

    Kanye tweeted: "I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for 'prison reform' (sic)"

    Kim and Meek both spoke at the Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in 2018, and although Kanye remains fond of the rapper, he said Kim was "out of line".

    He wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "Meek is my man and was respectful That's my dog Kim was out of line I'm worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya'll ain't listen to MJ and now ya'll believe them??? (sic)"

    Since his outbursts, Kanye has apologised publicly to the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star.

    He tweeted: "I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me.To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me. (sic)"
