Kanye West is forging ahead with his bid for the Oval Office after sharing a link to his presidential merch. Voters can decorate themselves with Kanye's name emblazoned on hats and hoodies, while they can also purchase a T-shirt with the phrase: "God Save America."

And in a bizarre move, the rapper, entrepreneur shared a clip in which he held "Vote Kanye" hats above the heads of the Vice President and his Democratic rival.

Incumbent Mike Pence and Joe Biden's VP Kamala Harris last night engaged in their first debate, weeks after Donald Trump and Joe Biden went head-to-head. Kanye launched his presidential bid with a tearful speech in South Carolina in July, speaking on topics from abortion, slavery and space travel.

It's thought pal Elon Musk is running as his Vice President. During Kanye's impassioned speech, which covered some of America's most contentious topics, he touched on the subject of abortion.

And to the astonishment of many, told that he'd wanted wife Kim Kardashian to have an abortion when she fell pregnant with their eldest child, North, now seven. They now share four children - North, Saint, four, Chicago, two and Psalm, one.

It's been a number of turbulent months for Kanye, following his campaign launch and a few Twitter meltdowns. Kanye suffers from bipolar disorder, with Kim urging compassion for her husband following a Twitter rant in which he levelled a number of explosive accusations. These included the claim that he was seeking divorce from Kim and suggesting that she'd been unfaithful with fellow rapper Meek Mill.

Meek Mill denied the suggestion, branding it "lies." He also accused Kim and her mum Kris of being "white supremacists" and compared Kris to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Kanye publicly apologised to his wife, while Kim has urged compassion for Kanye's mental health after what was reported to be a bipolar episode.
