Kanye West didn’t sound happy that the New York Times contacted him about a private meeting he had this weekend with Jared Kushner, senior advisor to President Donald Trump.

The controversial presidential candidate tweeted out a challenge Tuesday night to do a live interview with the Times. While acknowledging the meeting with the president’s son-in-law, he claimed they focused on discussing a book about black empowerment called “Powernomics.”

In his tweet, the rapper didn’t address questions by Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Danny Hakim about his meeting with Kushner, who was traveling in Colorado with his wife Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter. The meeting reportedly took place in Telluride, Colorado. Kushner serves as the de facto chief of Trump’s reelection campaign.

West also is vacationing in Colorado with his wife, Kim Kardashian. She was not present at the meeting even though she developed close ties with Kushner and Ivanka Trump through her work with the Trump administration on criminal justice reform. Kardashian also has dined at the couple’s Washington D.C. home.

West faces growing questions about election fraud and reports that he is getting help from Republican and pro-Trump operatives to run a spoiler campaign intended to siphon votes away from presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. According to Kardashian and others close to him, West also is struggling through an episode of bipolar disorder.

After West issued his tweet Tuesday night, he agreed to a brief follow-up interview with the Times, during which he refused to elaborate on his meeting with Kushner and Ivanka Trump. “He instead expressed anger about abortion rates among Black women and said he didn’t reflexively support Democrats,” the story said.

references — “Powernomics” — says it “analyzes the complex web of racial monopolies and Black America’s inappropriate behavior patterns that are driving it into a permanent underclass status.”

A report Wednesday from Forbes added to concerns about West’s contacts with the Kushner and the Trump White House. The report, citing four sources close to both men, said that West and Kushner have been talking regularly, even “daily,” since West declared his candidacy July 4.

Sources also suggested to Forbes editor Randall Lane that Kushner may be exploiting West’s bipolar disorder to get him to continue his bizarre campaign.

“One thing that particularly upsets those close to the Yeezy sneaker mogul … is his apparent delusion about his chances of winning,” Lane reported. There are concerns that Kushner is feeding this delusion.

“Jared’s scared and doesn’t want me to run because he knows that I can win,” West has told numerous associates after his conversations with Kushner, Lane reported.

West has filed petition to get on the November ballot in 10 states, Vanity Fair reported. But so far he only has managed to secure a spot on Oklahoma’s ballot. Other petitions in other states are under review.

West managed to meet the filing deadlines for Illinois and New Jersey, but the two states threw his eligibility into doubt after both announced that the majority of the signatures submitted as part of his petition were invalid, Vanity Fair reported.

In Wisconsin, Democrats have challenged West’s petition, citing the lateness of his filing and the fact that some signatures have fake-sounding names such as “Mickey Mouse” and “Bernie Sanders,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The complaint also contains affidavits from some citizens who said they were misled about the reasons they were signing the petition.
