Rapper, designer and former Trump supporter Kanye west has kicked start presidential campaign on Sunday. In his first engagement as a US presidential candidate, he broke down in tears while speaking to people in Charleston, South Carolina.

The rapper told the audience how he and wife Kim Kardashian almost got an abortion when they were expecting their first child 'North'.
"So my girlfriend called me and I just thought to myself, ‘Please don’t tell me I gave Kim Kardashian AIDS,” west said and added, "She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby’s gone."

The US presidential candidate also shared with his supporters while bursting into tears that his father wanted to abort him but his mother came to the rescue:
"You know who else protected a child? Who do you think might have protected a child? My mum saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me. My mum saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West, because my dad was too busy!”
