Kanye West has significantly changed his 2024 presidential campaign team, hiring controversial right-wing personality Milo Yiannopoulos as his new Political Director of Operations. This follows the departure of Nicholas Fuentes and Ali Alexander, who were reportedly sent cease and desist letters from Yiannopoulos. Fuentes and Alexander were part of West’s prior political team.
New Political Director Milo Yiannopoulos Hired
Yiannopoulos has been hired as West’s new Political Director of Operations for his 2024 presidential campaign, according to a close source to those involved. His appointment follows the departure of Fuentes and Alexander, who were both part of West’s prior political team.
Cease and Desist Letters Sent To Fuentes & Alexander
Yiannopoulos reportedly sent cease and desist letters to Fuentes and Alexander, terminating their services as part of Ye’s exploratory team. He also requested Fuentes to have his assistant contact him for an “orderly handover” of the YE24.com domain and any associated assets, as well as submit any records he has related to the campaign by the end of the day.
Additionally, Ali Alexander was allegedly sent a similar email.
Fuentes’ Controversial Background & Payment From Kanye’s Campaign
It’s worth noting that Fuentes is a far-right activist and white supremacist who was paid more than $30,000 by Kanye West’s presidential campaign, according to The Hill.
In November 2022, after announcing he was running for president, Kanye West shared that he would like former president Donald Trump to be his vice president.
According to NBC News, Kanye West has made several announcements regarding his 2024 presidential run, including his desire for Donald Trump to be his vice president. However, his recent reshuffling of his political team and hiring Milo Yiannopoulos has raised questions about his campaign strategy and potential supporters.

Kanye West Says He’s Removing His Tattoos & Grills If He Becomes President
Kanye West has announced that he is running for president in the 2024 election. Now, he has recently shared that if he is elected, the rapper-turned-businessman plans to remove his tattoos and grill.
Kanye West has made it clear that he will run for president after previously running in 2020. In a new video, Ye says he plans to remove his tattoos and grill if he wins the election.
During the clip, Kanye, wearing an American flag jacket, was asked about his presidential plans. He gave a brief answer:
“I’m getting my tattoos removed and put some normal teeth back in,” the “Pablo” artist said.
Kanye has not mentioned any major plans but joked about possibly making former president Donald Trump his vice president.
Kanye West Announces He’s Running For President In 2024
Kanye West made headlines earlier after making an announcement about something he has attempted before. In a video, Kanye announced that he will be running for president in the 2024 elections.
In a YouTube video, Ye is seen walking into a warehouse, followed by someone recording him. In the beginning, he walks with a man named Milo Yiannopoulos, who he refers to as his campaign manager.
When the cameraman asked if he was running, he laughingly responded, “Yes. It’s that simple.”
While in the warehouse, Kanye showed off merchandise that read “YE24” and mentioned that some clothes were from Adidas, Balenciaga, and Gap.
Recently, Kanye was dropped from those companies after he posted comments labeled as anti-semitic on social media and allegedly lost his billionaire status.
When discussing his plans, he highlighted that the average person needs more education, healthcare, and engineering opportunities. The “Donda” rapper also says his message is to look forward to the future.
“We’re getting past the past. We’re focusing on the future,” Kanye said.
Even though Kanye has run for president in the past and openly expressed his love for former President Donald Trump, he has not confirmed his chosen political party.
