Presidential hopeful Kanye West spoke to an audience on Sunday for the first time since he announced that he would be running for office this year.
The rapper touched on a number of different topics, including foreign trade, gun control and religion.
Though West was most passionate when discussing abortions, where he broke down in tears saying that his mother "saved his life."
He continued to fight back the tears while talking about his own family, saying: "I almost killed my daughter... even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn't want to."
West then suggested that everybody who has a baby should get a million dollars from the government.
He then criticised civil rights activist Harriet Tubman, saying that she "never actually freed the slaves she just had them work for other white people".
This comment resulted in a number of people walking out of the venue.
