Chicago Mayoral Candidate Amara Enyia Says Kanye West is ‘Adopting Our Platform

Amara Enyia tells TMZ … Kanye's last-minute $73,540 donation this week cleared her debt to the Illinois State Board of Elections, which was her final barrier to getting on the ballot. Enyia owed that exact amount in fines for not filing campaign finance reports from her 2015 mayoral run.

  1. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 i keep tellin yall ,kanye aint lost it,,its deeper then just befriending that trump guy,,🤔🤐🤐🤐

  2. I ain’t voting for this bih. I’m black and idc. I don’t think she can get the job done it’ takes more than just being black, just cuz u black and from the city don’t mean u can run the city. Stop it

    • She has an actual platform. Nobody is saying she should be mayor just cause she’s black.

  3. Kanye comes back to chicago from living in California in a billion dollar house and tries to do whats best for chicago.

    • So are you saying Chicago needs a leader, who didn’t have a pot to piss in; nor a window to throw it out of ?

    • +New wine & New creature Sound like you are describing the one and only, the creator son. Foxes have holes and birds have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head. Your key word is [didn’t] , Amara has already proven that you don’t know what you’re talking about, have you forgotten that Amara is already a certified legal attorney? She’s also a very beautiful melanated sister, she has a smile that can send chills down the spine of a real man.

    • She is a legal American citizen. The first lady of America is from Eastern Europe. And the last president was from Kenya.

  4. “If I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump, ”Kanye West told booing fans on the second leg of his Saint Pablo Tour in San Jose California,🤔 but didn’t West ENDORSE and help PAY for Democrat mayoral candidate Amara Enyia’s $70,000 debt to the ELECTIONS BOARD plus a $200,000 “DONATION” 😂😂😂

    • Hey stupid. In America state, local , and national are separate. You might want to take a history and civics class

  5. Just goes to show that Kanye is nowhere near as strong and independent a thinker as he pretends to be. Supports the GOP for a few months then flipflops because of name-calling (and whatever effect it’s had on his bottom line). How black voters still support the DNC after all these years just blows my mind.

  6. amara I’m a write In…I know Willie lashawn and Toni. u are my deputy mayor 1 of 4
