Ben Carson has spoken out and he is all for Kanye West running for president in 2020.
During a recent interview with ABC, the retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate expressed that he is willing to give West “a chance.” “He’ll be able to explain things and see if he resonates with the people,” Carson said.
The 65-year-old continued, “I did have an opportunity to talk with him. I was extremely impressed with his business acumen. He knows a lot about business. I talked to him about the possibility of maybe himself and some of the other people in pop culture doing some music that might be uplifting that might give young women a sense of their value and young men a sense of responsibility. I think it could be a tremendous thing in our society.”
West, who announced his presidential candidacy during the MTV VMAs, has been getting a great deal of support from several people, including Donald Trump, Chelsea Clinton and Scandal star, Khandi Alexander.
HipHollywood caught up with mama Pope during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards where she revealed her support for the rapper. “Kanye West should run for president. Because think about what the UN meetings would be like when he would go ‘hold up ok lets shut all this down.’ For that alone,” she told us.
