As we all remember during Kanye West's MTV Video Music Awards speech, he hinted at a 2020 presidential run and of course mentioned GOP presidential candidate:
"When I run for president, I'd prefer not to run against someone. I would be like 'I want to work with you.' As soon as I hard [Ben] carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy. And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence."
Ben Carson reciprocated the praise in a recent interview on ABC's This Week, expressing his excitement.
"I was extremely impressed with his business acumen. He knows a lot about business. I talked to him about the possibility of maybe himself and some of the other people in pop culture doing some music that might be uplifting that might young women a sense of their value and young men a sense of responsibility. I think it could be tremendous thing in our society."
