Mock #Kanye2024 posters appear in US cities (PHOTOS)
The posters, which bear the slogans “#Kanye2024” and “Keep America Great” were plastered across the cities on on Monday. Kanye himself tweeted out a photo of the posters the same day, which he quickly deleted.
The artists reportedly responsible for the posters said in a statement: “Kanye West tore a hole in the fabric of reality this weekend by recognizing the wisdom of YouTuber Candace Owens in the most publicly unfiltered way possible, via Twitter. Donald Trump has proved to all Americans that clarity of vision and the ability to persuade are much stronger assets for a President than political experience. Kanye appears to get this more than anyone else out there".
The posters appeared after Kanye returned to Twitter following a one-year hiatus from the social media platform. Immediately, he tweeted his support for YouTuber Candace Owens, a black activist known for her opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement and to liberal concepts like “cultural appropriation” and “white privilege.”

West then spoke out against censorship in America, writing in another tweet about how the “thought police” are trying to suppress him for his beliefs. “We have freedom of speech but not freedom of thought,” he wrote.

In an conversation with Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden over the weekend, West reportedly said he loved President Donald Trump. The rapper famously met with Trump in 2016 to “discuss multicultural issues,” before deleting his pro-Trump tweets.
Kanye has teased the possibility of running for president before. His close friends are apparently “furious” that the rapper dared to express pro-Trump, anti-left views on Twitter, reported celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
Right-wingers and Trump supporters however took to Twitter to express their support for Kanye, who they say dares to think for himself and leave the “democrat plantation.”
