3. He talked about his faith at his first campaign event
Most recently, West drew headlines for his first campaign event in South Carolina in July. According to ABC News, during the rally, he told attendees that his father wanted his mother to have an abortion and West, himself, also struggled with the choice of abortion when his wife became pregnant.
"I almost killed my daughter. I love my daughter. … God wants us to create," said West, who has four children with Kim Kardashian West.
He added that he wants abortion to be legal, but that “everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars or something in that range.”
The Associated Press also reported that he played gospel music before he took the stage.
But many called West’s campaign event “bizarre,” and family members reportedly told media outlets that West needs professional help. CNN reports that Kim told her Instagram followers that West has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
