When asked further about the details of Kanye’s presidential end, Kramer said “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled.”
West’s campaign organisation already had a staff strength of about 180 people working in Florida before they decided to call off the effort.
This latest development is coming weeks after the rapper had declared his intention to run for the Oval Office via Twitter.
There were speculations about the timing of the declaration as he had already missed every single state filing deadline for the two major parties and nearly all state primaries.
