Kanye West Says He Will Be President, Wearing Red MAGA Hat Was 'God's Practical Joke on Liberals'

For Kanye West, becoming president of the United States isn't a matter of if, but when. The eccentric rapper made the bold prediction in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe on Beats 1, saying: "We're working on some things right now."

"There will be a time when I will be the president of the U.S. and I will remember… any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing," added West, though he didn't elaborate who he is referring to.

In the wide-ranging interview in support of West's new album Jesus is King, West also spoke about wearing President Donald Trump's infamous—and controversial—red "Make America Great Again" hat in public on numerous occasions.

West, who said he now lives in service to Jesus Christ, explained that wearing the "MAGA" hat is "God's practical joke on all liberals."

"Now that I'm in service to Christ my job is to spread the gospel," said West. "I'm no longer a slave ... I'm a son now, a son of God and I'm free, but this shows you that God is hilarious. Liberals love art and now, I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time. It's just a fact, right?

"So, to put a red hat on was God's practical joke on all liberals like, 'Nooooo not Kanye!'" West continued. "But those liberals never, we are the same human beings, it's not man versus machine—man is the machine. We are God's imperfect creation because we perish."

West has been spotted wearing a "MAGA" hat in the past and during a meeting with Trump in the Oval Office last October told the president that it makes him "feel like Superman," BBC reported.

"There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman," West told Trump during a White House meeting. "You made a Superman—that's my favourite superhero—you made a Superman cape for me."

Following a meeting at Trump Tower in December 2016, after Trump was elected president, Trump told reporters he and West have been "friends for a long time," CNN reported.

Prior to the White House meeting last October, Trump said that West has "been a terrific guy" who has supported his initiatives for black people in America.

"You know, he loves what we're doing for African-American jobs, for so many different things. Median income, as you see, at an all-time high. Poverty level at the best rate—meaning the lowest rate so far. And Kanye is a smart guy. And he sees that," said Trump, CNN reported.
