Kanye West singled out Joe Biden for criticism in his first interview since tweeting that he was running for president, implying that he would be fine with running to hurt Biden’s support among African Americans.

Speaking to Forbes, West outlined some of his political views as he mulls a run for president — he clarified that he has 30 days to make a final decision on whether he will officially launch a campaign, after tweeting Saturday that he is running. West was vocal about his opposition to the Democratic Party, which he said is “threatening” African Americans into voting for it.

“I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party,” West said. “And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.”

While West said it was “a form of racism and white supremacy and white control” to “assume that me running is me splitting the (black) vote,” when asked if he is ok with helping Trump’s reelection prospects by denting Biden’s African American support, West said he would be.
