He also talked about race in regards to cultural institutions like Universal Music and the National Basketball Association, which profit from Black talent but do not have Black ownership, and that the Democrats don't do anything for Black people, saying: "The most racist thing ever said out loud is that if Kanye West runs for president, it would split the Black vote".

The event, which took place in North Charleston in SC, was West's first campaign event since declaring earlier this month that he would be contesting the presidential election in November 2020 against Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

West often appeared to be putting forward policy proposals on the fly, and made comments that left even those in attendance muttering in disbelief.

But it seems like the speech has caused a rift within the 43-year-old's family.

On Monday night, West accused his wife of trying to "lock [him] up" in a series of concerning tweets - all of which have apparently been deleted.

No one from the Kardashian clan has spoken publicly since Kanye held his rally on Sunday (July 19).

"At the end of the day, people close to Kanye want him to end this presidential campaign now before he does more damage to himself, his brand, and the family", the source continues. They had freedom so they could be able to work wherever they wanted to work, create businesses, and we started doing that.

Trump, Biden, or Kanye West can not free us'.

West wore a bullet-proof vest, broke down in tears, and made a number of factually incorrect claims about slavery and NY abortion health laws.

"And I called my wife and she said, we're gonna have this baby".

Kardashian, who shares three other children with West: Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one, was left reeling from the revelation and worries about what other bombshells West could drop as he campaigns for the U.S. presidency.

"Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to", he said.

As per MailOnline, he wrote, 'I put my life on the line for my children that North's mother would never sell her sex rape'. Who do you think might have protected a child?

"My dad wanted to abort me".

At one point he began crying when talking about abortion, saying that his parents nearly aborted him: "There would have been no Kanye West, because my dad was too busy".

At this point he started breaking down in tears and it was hard to work out what he was saying. And the fact that we ain't talked in so long, that's how you know we're real brothers.
