Kanye West tries to make fortune out of presidential bid through campaign merch

With less than one month before the big day, Kanye West is making the last hurrah on his presidential bid.

The “All of the Lights” hitmaker took to Twitter as he unveiled its 2020 campaign merch during the vice-presidential debate night.

In the video, Ye is watching through a massive projector, while holding a navy blue cap that says “Vote Kanye” above Kamala Harris and a white cap on Mike Pence with the “Kanye 2020 Vision” logo.

“They had to get the merch first,” he wrote alongside a link of his merch site.

The Grammy Award winner’s campaign merchandise varies from apparel to accessories that feature t-shirts that say “God Save America,” amounting to $40, an oversized hoodie that costs $80 and a $40 hat.

Moreover, the “Flashing Lights” rapper uses the opportunity to attract voters as he listed a summary of his presidential platform that includes taking care of the environment, reforming the legal system, a strong national defense, and a better education system.

Voters are also encouraged to donate in installments amounting to $20, $100, $200, $500, $1,000 and $2,800.

Kanye West announced Presidential bid for 2020 elections

In July, Kanye West stunned the public after he announced via Twitter that he is running for a seat in the White House.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” he wrote.

Unlike other presidential candidates, the iconic rapper runs under an independent party, which he called “Birthday Party.”

His announcement was followed by his first and only presidential campaign rally, which became quite controversial after he made an infamous abortion rant involving his eldest daughter, North.

At the time, Ye revealed that he and his wife, Kim Kardashian, considered aborting their child.

“I almost killed my daughter… even if my wife [Kim Kardashian West] were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to.”

Kanye West’s self-funded campaign raked almost $7 Million

Furthermore, the “Ultrabeam” hitmaker made it to headlines after multiple reports cited that his self-funded campaign has cost him nearly $7 million.

According to the Federal Election Commission filings, Ye spent $6.8 million from July 15 to Aug. 31 only, while contributions to his campaign reached a total of just $11,000.
