Kanye West Says He Will Run For The President In 2020 | The music


Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t be more strange, rapper Kanye West declared his candidacy for the American president.The unlikely challenger to Donald Trump – of whom he was a staunch defender – and Joe Biden, chose American Independence Day to make the surprise announcement on Twitter, setting off a storm on social media.

“We must now fulfill America’s promise by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” wrote West. “I run for president of the United States.”


We must now fulfill America’s promise by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I run for president of the United States 🇺🇸! # 2020VISION

The publication was accompanied by a star flag, an exclamation mark and “# 2020VISION”. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, responded to the tweet with an American flag.

With only four months to go before November 3 polling day, it was unclear whether West’s tweet would have been more appropriate on April Fool’s Day than American Independence Day.

It was also unclear whether the 43-year-old had filed official documents to appear on state ballots. The deadline for adding independent candidates to the poll has not yet passed in many states.

But after businessman and reality star Trump won the White House in 2016, perhaps Kim Kardashian’s idea as a first lady could be written in the stars as the fate of America.

And West, a 21-time Grammy winner, got immediate approval from Elon Musk, CEO of electric car maker Tesla and another celebrity known for his eccentric outbursts, who tweeted in response: “You have my full support! ”

A West-Musk ticket is not what we expected in an election that has already delivered a cornucopia of the unexpected.

West and his wife visited Trump at the White House to discuss prison reform. At a bizarre meeting in 2018, West wore a red “Make America Great Again” cap and said words like “motherfucker” and “endless amounts of universe”. He said that Trump made him feel like Superman, kissed him and said, “I love this guy here. ”

When asked if West could be a future presidential candidate, Trump replied, “It could very well be.”
