Trump is lying about the election results. There is no widespread election fraud, and importantly, government agencies have confirmed that electronic voting systems are secure.
Trump’s refusal to accept reality is troubling. Not simply because the President seems unable to competently perform his administrative duties (he has spent much of the week Tweeting conspiracy theories and firing bureaucrats), but Trump is riling up his base into believing that an actual injustice has been done.
Many people are arguing that Kanye’s Presidential bid is actually a form of vote suppression by the Trump campaign. The plan is to ‘siphon off’ votes from Biden, which would give Trump an edge by splitting the anti-Trump vote. For that reason, losing the chance to be on the Wisconsin ballot is a big upset as Trump won the state by a narrow margin in 2016.
Does Kanye really want to be President? Probably not. He seems to just want to run for President and he acknowledges that his campaign is meant to assist Trump’s re-election bid. Kanye could get into a lot of trouble.
