At this point we will have to make do with the presidential candidates we already have. But in a new BBC Radio 1 interview, Kanye West doubled-down on his promise to make a White House run in 2020. "We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July," he told host Annie Mac in the Sunday chat. "We’re numb to places on the Earth that we don’t live – like our life is okay but it’s okay for other people’s lives to not be okay."
Fact posted excerpts of the interview, which will air in full at 2 p.m. ET on Monday (Aug. 1). What 'Ye stressed, though, is that he's not talking about running for president for the usual reasons. "When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views, I don’t have views on politics," he said. "I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it."
