Voters erupted on Twitter after Chance The Rapper supported Kanye West’s presidential aspirations, telling him that his endorsement could mean more Donald Trump.
Chance The Rapper is getting major heat after saying that he “trusts” his friend Kanye West would make a good president. Chance, 27, quote-tweeted the video Kanye posted for his late mother’s birthday, and added “And y’all out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh”. His followers immediately started telling him that supporting Kanye meant throwing his vote away.
“If you use your platform to encourage Black people to vote for Kanye West, who has no chance of being elected to office, you will simply help re-elect racist Donald Trump,” CNN’s Keith Boykin tweeted to Chance. “Trump thanks you for your service,” a fan commented. “Tweeting this is irresponsible even if it’s a joke.” Chance saw the tweets and suggested the Kanye hate was because voters won’t vote outside a two-party system. He asked if there’s really a better person to vote for besides Kanye in the 2020 election.
Are u more pro biden or anti ye and why? I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna “get trump out” but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??
