Kanye West is making believers out of people who initially laughed at Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

While Democrats and Republicans have written off Kanye's campaign, Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner said Democrats and Republicans would be foolish to ignore Kanye.

"Democrats cannot ignore him because he could split the vote," she told Page Six. "No one can ignore a black candidate, even though they may think whatever they think about Kanye," she said.

Trump, a former reality TV star, drew laughter and ridicule when he announced his intentions to run for president. He shocked the world when he beat the odds-on-favorite, Hillary Clinton, to win the 2016 election.

Faulkner says Kanye could pull off a similar November surprise by siphoning off Democratic votes from Joe Biden.

"They kind of have to keep an eye on him because he's going to pop up on the ballot in certain places and they better hope it's not in a swing state," Faulkner said.

She added the GOP "can't ignore him either," because Trump and Kanye are pals and Kanye has already hinted that he would act as spoiler to Biden's campaign.

Kanye West revealed he secretly met with President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner (pictured left) amid allegations that West and Trump conspired to sabotage Joe Biden's campaign.

West, who recently returned from vacationing with his family, admits he secretly met with Jared Kushner last weekend.

Kushner, who is married to Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, is a White House adviser and serves on Trump's re-election campaign.

West announced he was running for president which sparked accusations that he and Trump were conspiring to siphon Democratic votes from Biden.

West revealed the meeting with Kushner in a tweet after The New York Times learned about the clandestine meeting and called him for a comment.

"I'm willing to do a live interview with the New York Time about my meeting with Jared where we discussed Dr Claude Anderson's book Powernomics," West tweeted Tuesday night.

In his interview with The Times, West gave scant details about the private meeting that took place in Colorado, where Kushner was traveling with his wife, Ivanka.

West had been camping in Colorado with his family, and afterward flew to Telluride to meet with Kushner, those close to West told The Times.

In an interview with Forbes magazine, West all but admitted he's acting as spoiler to damage Biden's campaign to clear the way for Trump to win re-election in November. West currently faces accusations of election fraud in at least 2 states.

Kanye West seemed relaxed and worry-free after arriving in Miami on Sunday, following a family vacation with estranged wife Kim Kardashian-West and their four children.

A source tells ET that Kanye is "in a great place" after spending a week with Kim and their children, daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint and Psalm.

The source added that Kanye is "feeling creatively inspired" by the trip abroad for a little fun in the sun.

Paparazzi photos show the family, their nannies and security team exiting a private jet in Miami after vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

"The family seemed fine. The kids were having a great time," an eyewitness tells ET. "You could see [the kids] running around as they waited to get off of the plane. Kim got off the plane with the kids first. When they were about halfway down the runway Kanye exited the plane."

"Kim seemed fine and not worried at all; she had the kids close by her," the witness said. "Kanye didn’t seem worried either. He walked with his head up the whole time."

On Friday, the independent presidential candidate fired back at Wisconsin Democratic Party for spying on his presidential campaign.

In documents obtained by TMZ, Kanye claimed the Democrats hired a private investigator to spy on him, as part of an "organized effort of harassment and intimidation".

He also said the Democrats were wasting their time because nothing they turned up can harm his presidential chances.

"The goal is to win," he tweeted on Aug. 6.

Kanye needed 2,000 signatures from registered voters to get his name on the ballot in Wisconsin.

But the Wisconsin Democratic Party accused the rap producer of submitting bogus signatures. They included affidavits from people who claim they were "tricked" into signing their names.

According to TMZ, the Elections Commission will review the legal papers and make a recommendation whether to allow Kanye's name on the ballot.

He was already kicked off the ballot in his home state of Illinois, where election officials claim more than half of his submitted signatures were invalid.

Nick Cannon has endorsed rapper-turned-U.S. Presidential candidate Kanye West in the 2020 elections.

Mariah Carey's ex-husband told TMZ the U.S. needs another black man in office, referring to former President Barack Obama, who is biracial.

Cannon said of his longtime friend's campaign: "I love it! We need another black man in power."

The news comes amid reports that Kanye is under investigation for election fraud.

CNN correspondent April Ryan tweeted, "Two states declaring #KanyeWest ineligible to be on #POTUS ballot due to faulty signatures could open him up to an #ElectionFraud investigation."

"Kanye West will also not be permitted on the New Jersey ballot due to faulty signatures. His 'campaign' withdraws petition."

Ryan continued saying, "I would imagine other states where reported GOP operatives assisted him to get on the ballot will soon be reviewing."

Last week, Kanye jokingly said he was campaigning to draw votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Nick sparked concern last month when he made headlines for anti-Semitic comments he shared on his podcast show, "Cannon's Class," in which he labeled white people "savages" who act "evil" and "rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive".

In subsequent social media posts, he wrote that things "couldn't get any worse" for him, and he hinted at taking his own life after none of his A-list friends rushed to defend him.

The public fallout was swift and harsh as ViacomCBS severed longstanding ties with the comedian, taking millions of dollars in revenue with them.

Cannon's bank account took another hit as his daytime talk show, The Nick Cannon Show, has gone on hiatus and his radio show on Power 106, Nick Cannon Mornings, is temporarily suspended.

Since making the controversial comments, Nick has met with rabbis and learned about Judaism during a visit to the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.

He also pledged his first paycheck from his daytime talk show to the Jewish center.

John Legend took aim at his former boss, rapper Kanye West for allegedly conspiring with President Donald Trump to divert votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Legend, who is best known for his song "Tonight (Best You Ever Had)", took to Twitter to denounce Kanye and Trump.

Legend retweeted this post to his 13.5 million followers, writing, "Just in case anyone needs some clarity around what's happening here:"

"A little update — The GOP lawyer who helped @kanyewest get on the ballot in Wisconsin is actively working for @realDonaldTrump's campaign. She's the lawyer of record in their lawsuit to try to get a @prioritiesUSA anti-Trump ad pulled..."

He followed up by tweeting: "Anyway.... Anyone reckless and/or misinformed enough to fall for the okey doke probably wasn't voting for Biden (or voting at all)."

His followers reacted by asking Legend to speak to Kanye rather than drag him on social media.

User @dweebs193 tweeted: "I was under the impression that you were friends with Kanye. Why you telling us? Shouldn't you talk to him? Also I think it's pretty racist for them to assume that black ppl are going to vote for Kanye bc he's on the ballot."

Caitlyn Jenner confirmed Kanye West is living alone in Wyoming -- away from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and their four children.

Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, insisted that despite West's recent Twitter meltdown, the rapper is "a good person" with "a big heart".

The 70-year-old Olympian, who was married to Kanye's mother-in-law, and is the father of two of her 5 children, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, appeared on British TV show Good Morning Britain on Monday, Aug. 3, and voiced support for the "Gold Digger" rapper, who is determined to be the 46th president of the United States.

"Well, honestly I don't know," Jenner responded when asked about West's political ambitions. "Since all of this has come down, I have just kind of watched it just like everybody else. I haven't had a chance (to speak to him), he is living up in Wyoming most of the time.

"So, I just wish him the best. I made that as a joke about being his VP when he announced that. But I hope for the best for him. He's a really good guy."

The male-to-female reality TV star went on to praise the 43-year-old rap producer, who suffers from bipolar disorder, for being "a good friend", especially during the years when Jenner underwent gender transition.

"The only thing I can talk about is really how he treated me through everything and he has been the most kind, loving human being and so good to me throughout the years and especially going through everything I've been going through in the last five years," Jenner said. "He's been such a good friend."

The former Olympic decathlon winner added "He has been extremely supportive. Kanye has got a big heart... he's a good person."

And when asked about the situation in the U.S., Jenner insisted: "I don't even want to discuss or talk about politics anymore."

"It's a different world, I want to go back to the old world!... I think here in the U.S., a lot of it is political. We have an election coming up, it seems everything right now is politics, politics, politics."

Jenner, who previously supported Donald Trump, stopped supporting the President in 2018 due to his administration's lack of support for the transgender community.

The "I Am Caitlyn star" no longer politically identifies as Republican, and instead claims to be "economically conservative, socially progressive".

According to sources, Kanye and Kim have been living apart in separate states since last year.

The reality TV star flew to Cody, Wyoming on Monday to meet with Kanye following several weeks of concerning behavior, which include Kanye's social media rants and a recent bizarre campaign rally in South Carolina.

A source told PEOPLE of the situation: "As soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car."

Noting that Kim was "hysterically crying", the insider added: "Kim hasn't seen Kanye for weeks. She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted. She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her."

"It's all a bad situation. She decided to fly to Cody to speak to him in person. She doesn't want to be ignored anymore."

Rapper Lil Baby is dismayed that no one told him Kanye West wanted to work with him on a song. The Atlanta rapper took to Twitter.com to respond after Kanye dropped his name in one of his rambling tweets the week.

"Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won't do a song wit me," Kanye tweeted.

Lil Baby responded, "Nobody told me ye was trying to get me on a song that's fucced up."

In a follow-up tweet, Baby tagged Kanye and wrote, "kanyewest no disrespect nobody told me."

Maybe no one told Baby because no one in his camp knew until Kanye tweeted about it this week.

The 25-year-old rapper caused a firestorm on social media after he got into a heated debate with Rolling Stone writer Charles Holmes, when the journalist insisted, "Black people can't be racist."

But Lil Baby disagreed: "Just 'cause you work in a racist system doesn't mean you racist."

"Damn near every system that got a job is a racist system. You know what I mean?" said the rapper, real name Dominique Armani Jones.

"CEOs be like old white people. You never know, they got to be some kind of racist 'cause at some certain age... that was the way of life almost. So I almost feel like all these corporations or whatnot may be racist. And black people are racist too."

"Black people can't be racist," the writer said in disagreement, prompting Baby to respond, "Why? Racist means to be just to your race."

Holmes explained: "Well, the thing about racism is you would have to have some type of power, and Black people, historically speaking, don't have any power to be racist. We can be prejudiced."

"To me, a racist is someone who treats a different race than theirs a different way than they would treat theirs," the "Drip Too Hard" rapper said.

Lil Baby's second album My Turn debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It also went platinum.

Meek Mill denies Kanye West's insinuation that he was involved in an entanglement with the rap producer's wife, Kim Kardashian West.

West dropped Meek's name in a series of rambling tweets that he's since deleted late Tuesday.

"I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the [Waldorf Astoria] for 'prison reform.' I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night ... Kris Jong-Un Lil baby my favorite rapper but won't do a song wit me. Meek is my man and was respectful That's my dog Kim was out of line I'm worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya'll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya'll believe them???"

The Internet speculated that Kim and Meek had a discussion about prison reform between the sheets at the luxury hotel.

But Meek denied the insinuation in a tweet on Wednesday, writing "Shit is cappp cmon ....."

According to Urbandictionary.com, "cap" is street slang for lying.

Meek's tweet comes amid reports suggesting Kim sought divorce advice from lawyers after Kanye revealed the couple considered aborting their first child, North West, at campaign rally on Sunday.

In a statement on her Instagram stories on Wednesday, Kim writes: "As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.

"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health."

She adds: "People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try (sic)."

Kim, 39, went on to call her husband "brilliant but complicated" adding: "Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words do not align with his intentions."

She ended her note by asking the news media and fans for compassion and empathy while she and her mom figure out how to get him away from his Wyoming compound so they can have him committed to a mental institution.

Kanye, 43, has lived apart from Kim at his Wyoming ranch since last year.

Kim thanked everyone who has expressed concern for the rap star's well being.

Kanye West says he narrowly escaped being locked up on a mental ward following his bizarre presidential campaign stop in South Carolina over the weekend.

Trey Songz took aim at Kanye West for being "in the way of progress" after the rapper shared his controversial views on revered anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman.

During his first presidential rally in Charleston, South Carolina on Sunday, Kanye claimed former slave Tubman, who returned to a plantation 19 times to lead 70 others to freedom, "just had them work for other white people!"

Trey was among Kanye's musical peers who wondered what happened to their old friend.

Sharing a clip from the rally, which features a woman saying, "Yo, we're leaving right now," following the slave comments, on his Instagram page, Trey, real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson, wrote: "They been sayin man Trey need to call these n****s before he just put em online blastin."

Referring to the rap producer as "goofy," Trey said: "Ye you in the way of progress foreal [sic], how you turn this goofy from who you were?. I'm so confused, whoever got his number need to call him."
 

50 Cent reposted a clip of the speech alongside the caption: "What the f**k did he just say? This is all Jay Z's fault. Kanye's first rally. LOL."

Rapper Q Tip simply posted an image of Tubman along with the caption, "#Hero," while female rapper Noname didn't hold back, tweeting: "KEEP HARRIET TUBMAN NAME OUT YOUR F**KING MOUTH!!!!!!!"

The View co-host Meghan McCain tweeted: "Kanye West needs serious help, not media coverage."

Kanye West's bizarre campaign stop in North Charleston, South Carolina on Sunday has his friends and the Kardashians very concerned for his mental stability, sources connected to the presidential candidate tell TMZ.

Wearing a black t-shirt under a tan armored vest and "2020" shaved into his hair, Kanye said Harriet Tubman didn't save the slaves and he criticized Planned Parenthood for killing millions of Black babies.

"My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me," he said before breaking down in tears. "There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy... I almost killed my daughter!"
 

Kanye also discussed abortion with his wife Kim Kardashian during her first pregnancy with daughter North West, saying he wanted the abortion.

He said Kim might divorce him for saying he wanted her to abort their first daughter, but even if she does, he'd thank her for delivering North anyway.

According to TMZ, "the family was shocked beyond words."

TMZ's sources say the Kardashians believe Kanye is in desperate need of mental help and is in the middle of a serious, bipolar episode, but he won't listen to them.

The Kardashians also believe Kanye not only hurt his political career but his businesses with his wild claim that abolitionist Harriet Tubman didn't free the slaves, she sent them to work for white people.

TMZ claims the Kardashians are not at all concerned that Kanye's comments will adversely affect Kim's businesses. Their money is separate and her and Kanye's brands are distinctly different entities.

Kanye's announcement that he was running for president upset Democrats who accused him of conspiring with his pal, President Donald Trump, to siphon off Democratic votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
