Kanye West has been a passionate supporter of Donald Trump, even visiting him at one point at the White House . But now, after declaring that he would be running for president on his Twitter account with Elon Musk supporting him, the Internet thought it was a stupid joke fueled by ego. Yet, he persists in being serious.
Declaring that he no longer supports the president, the singer laid himself out for Forbes in an interview where he brought up Marvel Studios' Black Panther .
In Kanye West's pursuit for President, during an interview on Forbes reported by Heroic Hollywood , he said that the organizational structure for his White House would be based on the fictitious country of Wakanda from Marvel Studios' Black Panther .
He said that he would "...use the framework of Wakanda" for the design group in the White House. As an example, he refers to the scene in which T'Challa visits his sister, Shuri, for advances in technology, saying that "Just the amount of innovation that can happen, the amount of innovation in medicine—like big pharma—we are going to work, innovate, together."
WHAT THIS MEANS
Black Panther's huge popularity is likely one of the reasons why Kanye West referenced the 2018 film. West does inaccurately recount the one scene that he describes "when the king went to visit that lead scientist to have the shoes wrap around her shoes."
One could extrapolate that these quotes mean that West's White House would have more direct contact with those who develop the U.S.'s technology and medicine.
