West’s wife Kim Kardashian did not appear to be supporting his bid. She has given no public endorsements of her husband and on Tuesday she retweeted a message about voter hotlines from Democratic vice presidential contender Kamala Harris.
The rapper was once one of Trump’s biggest celebrity supporters, launched his campaign for the White House in July with erratic statements that raised concerns over his mental health. The 21-time Grammy Award winner said in 2018 that he suffers from bipolar disorder. West loaned $6.7million to his campaign, according to a filing with the Federal Election Commission, and in a recent video emphasized religion and family values.
