Kanye West won’t be able to show up everywhere

Candidate “of God”, the rapper still intends to appear against Donald Trump and Joe Biden. But it will only be able to do so in certain states.

UNITED STATES – Facing Joe Biden and Donald Trump, he wants to represent God … but he will not be able to do it everywhere. Since the month of July and a disturbing meeting during which he appeared very fragile psychologically, Kanye West has officially been a candidate for the American presidential election which will take place in November.

Except that the rapper, if he presents himself outside the traditional channels that are the Republican and Democratic parties (he has the label of the “Birthday Party”), must still meet the traditional electoral requirements. And in this case, it does not do so in several key polling states.

At the beginning of September, Arizona, Wisconsin and Ohio in particular decreed that Kanye West and his running mate Michelle Tidball could not appear on the ballots on November 3.

In Ohio, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the judge who had rejected the artist’s candidacy, yet supported by 15,000 signatures from citizens and numerous documents. According to judicial authorities, Kanye West’s candidacy did not meet all the standards necessary to be approved, such as the missing signatures of his running mate.

Absent in Florida, Arizona and Ohio

In Wisconsin, a state that can switch at each election, a judge also considered that Kanye West could not be among the candidates, due to a delay in the transmission of his file. He should have completed his application before 5 p.m. Friday 11 September. “The candidates must arrive on time to enter the building of the electoral commission where certain papers must be filled out. There is no exception,” the judge justified.

He also missed the deadline to appear in his state of Illinois (though he was born in Atlanta, he spent a large majority of his life in Chicago), but also Missouri, Montana, Virginia- West, Wyoming and Florida, one of the most determining states in each poll.

However, Kanye West’s name may appear in several other states such as Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont. But given the number of large voters needed to be elected to the presidency of the United States, and the crucial importance of Arizona and Ohio in particular, it is already clear that the rapper will not be able to not triumph.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that Western forces rule the Belarusian opposition. He stated this in an interview with Channel One following a meeting with US First Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Bigan. Its decryption published on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

“We drew attention to the initiative of the President of Belarus A.G. Lukashenko, which he put forward even before the presidential elections and repeated already in the post-election period, – the initiative for constitutional reform as a basis for consolidating society with the subsequent organization of presidential, parliamentary and local government elections. I believe that a hand is extended to all those who are interested in a stable, united Belarus. It, of course, should be noticed by the opposition and those of our Western partners who are now leading this opposition, ”Lavrov said.

According to him, Russia does not consider it possible to try to impose mediators on the Belarusian leadership and the people from outside, “be it the OSCE, the EU, or some separate neighboring country”.

The minister called Belarusians a wise people who can determine the forms of national dialogue and how it will help to overcome the difficulties that have arisen now.

Lavrov called the meeting with the American diplomat useful, but expressed doubts about the legitimacy of the Belarusian opposition council. “We would very much like to understand what are the political criteria on which this coordinating council wants to function. There was a lot of contradictory information about the council’s program, ”said the head of Russian diplomacy.

According to him, on the website of opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, the goals pursued by this body were described very contradictory. The minister also noted that the composition of the coordinating council also raises questions, since many of its members learned that they are included in it, after the fact.

Rebecca Ross, former spokesman for the US Embassy in Russia reported on Twitter that Lavrov at a meeting with Bigan discussed the situation in Belarus. The American diplomat condemned the use of violence against the protesters and expressed support for the sovereignty of Belarus and the right of its people to self-determination.

Trump questions Kamala Harris’ American nationality: “She would not meet the conditions to be a candidate”

Donald Trump had already contested for years the American nationality of Barack Obama, supporting false theories according to which he was born in Kenya.

LUnited States President Donald Trump is attempting to cast doubt on the American nationality of Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. “I heard today that Kamala Harris would not qualify to run for vice-president,” he insinuated during a press conference at the White House.

Kamala Harris is the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father. She was mostly born in the city of Oakland, which automatically gives her American citizenship.

The Democratic Party reacted immediately, by not saying it was “not surprised” by Donald Trump’s insinuations. “What surprises us on the other hand is that it happens so quickly after his appointment,” Democrats added on CNN.

Donald Trump had already contested for years the American nationality of Barack Obama, supporting false theories according to which he was born in Kenya. Obama ended up making his birth certificate public in 2011. An American president must indeed be born on American soil.
