- She spoke about meeting Trump in Florida in a video Thursday called the “Mar-a-Lago debrief.”
Yee, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, said former President Donald Trump started “yelling” at him during dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort and told the rapper he would lose if he ran in 2024.
“When Trump started yelling at me at the table and telling me I was going to lose, I mean did that work for anyone in history?” The rapper said in a Video tweeted Thursday evening.
In the video, he said, “I’m like whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re talking to Ye.” The clip was one of several posted by the rapper on Thursday under the “YE24” banner.

Yi called the video a “Mar-a-Lago debrief,” in which he gives his side of the story about what happened during a visit to Trump’s residence in Florida on Tuesday.
The rapper said Trump was “disturbed” by Yi asking the former president to do so To be his running mate in 2024.
“I think this was, well, down on the list of things that surprised him,” Ye added.
Yi also spoke briefly in the video about his political beliefs. “Since we know, and all Christians in America who love Trump know that Trump is a conservative, we will demand that you stick all politics straight to the Bible,” he said.
The rapper also alleged that Trump said something apparently unpleasant about Ye’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
“You can tell her I said that,” Trump told Lee, according to the rapper. The video censored the words Yi alleged Trump said about Kardashian.
However, Ye seemed to be upset by the comment.
“I was thinking, ‘This is the mother of my kids,'” the rapper said in his video.
Yi’s Thursday video comes just days after he said he had asked Trump to run for vice president in 2024. However, Yi must still file the basic paperwork to become a candidate — unlike Trump, who announced his 2024 bid on Nov. 15.
A representative for Trump and an attorney representing Ye did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
The rapper was spotted out in Mar-a-Lago with white nationalist Nick Fuentes on Tuesday, ON Politico and The Daily Beast. Fuentes is best known for being a participant in the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
Yi ran for president under a “Christmas party” banner in 2020. He only appeared on the ballot in 12 states, having missed the deadline for the others. He collected around 60,000 votes out of an estimated 160 million, per the BBC.
The rapper has been a source of controversy, especially after he made several anti-Semitic statements. Major brands like Adidas, Balenciaga, and Vogue cut ties with Ye amid the debacle, dropping his estimated net worth from $1.5 billion to $400 million.
This week’s explosive Rolling Stone report also covered a slew of accusations from Yeezy collaborators about disturbing behavior from the rapper. This included a claim from an unnamed Yeezy staff that Ye had shown an explicit video of Kardashian during a staff meeting in 2018.
