Kanye West releases presidential campaign video on faith and family


Rapper Kanye West is campaigning on a message of restoring faith in the United States.

In a new campaign video released Monday, West appeared in front of a black and white American flag and underscored the positive role of faith and prayer in the country.

“We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our Constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including of course prayer,” West said. “Through prayer, faith can be restored. We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves. We are not only a beacon to the world, but we should be servants to each other.”

The video encourages voters to “write-in Kanye West” as the rapper-turned-presidential candidate continues to struggle to make ballots in multiple states, including Ohio, Arizona, and Virginia. He is, however, set to appear as an independent presidential candidate in states such as Colorado, Utah, and Oklahoma. West announced he was running for the presidency in July, using $6 million of his own money to fund his campaign.

Since then, West missed several critical deadlines to make the ballots in all fifty states, pivoting to a write-in campaign last week. “Friends writing me in,” he wrote in a caption on Twitter.

“By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people God intends us to be,” West said, concluding his message.
