I asked Donald Trump to be my 2024 running mate

Kanye West says he asked Donald Trump to be his 2024 presidential running mate during a meeting at the former president’s Florida estate this week.

The 45-year-old rapper — who has returned to Twitter after he was banned over an anti-Semitic rant — said he traveled to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach to make the pitch, and a Trump source confirmed the visit to The Post Wednesday.

“First time at Mar-a-Lago. Rain and traffic. Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting. And I had on jeans. Yikes,” West tweeted Tuesday night.

“What do you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?” he asked, using Twitter’s poll feature to add buttons with the choices “That’s very Ye” or “That’s very Nay.”

The hip-hop star, who now goes by Ye, has previously met with Trump in New York City and Washington, DC, including at a lunch with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump where he dropped an F-bomb in the Oval Office in October 2018 .

The pair also rendezvoused at Trump Tower in Manhattan in December 2016.

West’s supposed Florida meeting with the former president comes amid a series of his unhinged rants and outbursts.

The rapper — who is arguably Trump’s highest-profile celebrity supporter — was suspended from Twitter in October after writing that he wanted to go “death con 3” on Jews.

West returned to the social media site on Sunday and announced his plan to run for president in 2024 the same day.

His pal Trump, meanwhile, was booted from Twitter last year “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” following the Jan. 6 attacks on the US Capitol, but was allowed to return last week.

A rep for West did not immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.
