Kanye West has announced plans to run in the U.S. presidential election on July 4.
“We must now fulfill America’s promise by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” West wrote on Twitter.
“I run for president of the United States!”

West initially gained support from social media users, including Elon Musk. The rapper later said that Musk would be named “head of our space program” under his presidency.
Kanye West’s presidential campaign, however, hit a problem almost immediately, when it was revealed that he had already missed the deadline for voter registration in six separate states. Despite this, West continued to campaign for the highest office, telling Forbes that “if I win in 2020, it will be God’s nomination. ”
The rapper’s presidential candidacy also drew backlash from a handful of his musical contemporaries. Katy Perry called West’s decision to run “a little wild”, while Will.i.am said the presidency is “a dangerous thing to play with”. Elon Musk also went back on his support for West after the rapper’s interview with Forbes.
Yesterday (July 14), a US presidential poll revealed that Kanye West had the support of only 2% of the voters.
Outside of his presidential aspirations, West released a new single, titled “Donda,” earlier this week (July 13). The song is a tribute to the late mother of West, who died in 2007.
