Kanye West’s attempt to run for president of the United States cost the singer $ 13.2 million (R $ 73 million, at the current price). The information was released today by People, who had access to the financial files of the election campaign.
According to the publication, West contributed almost $ 12.5 million from his own pocket and managed to raise just over $ 2 million in external contributions. Altogether, it was $ 14.5 million to finance his election run – but he ended the season with about $ 1.3 million in the bank.
Despite the large figure, West was unsuccessful in the endeavor. He missed the registration deadline to have his name on the ballot papers for elections in different territories of the country and, according to People, won only 66 thousand valid votes.
West’s main expenditures include legal fees, online video production and the sale of “Kanye 2020” clothing – which in some cases have listed buyers as campaign contributors.
In comparison, Democrat Joe Biden, current US President, raised more than $ 1 billion ($ 5.5 billion) and former Republican President Donald Trump raised more than $ 811 million ($ 4.4 billion) ) to run their own campaigns.
