Kanye West has denied speculation he is running for president in an effort to help Donald gain re-election and insisted that no one is bankrolling his campaign.  

The rapper discussed his unlikely presidential bid in an interview with Nick Cannon's podcast, Cannon's Class.

But the rapper disputed Forbes' estimate when it came out back in April, saying that his true worth exceeds $3billion.
