Kim Kardashian West appeared to agree with her husband’s statement that he was running for the President on Saturday.
The 39-year-old reality star retweeted the 43-year-old rapper’s statement that he was throwing his hat in the electoral district, as well as his own addition to the message.
Kim simply tweeted an American flag emoji in his July 4 message.
A thousand words: wife Kim Kardashian didn’t have much to say immediately after Kanye’s announcement that he would run for President, but showed support by tweeting an American flag emoji in response
The mother of four had previously said that she had warned rapper husband Gold Digger not to enter politics.
In September 2016, Kim said in Wonderland: “Look at all the horrible things they do to Melania [Trump], put the pictures naked [of her]… I will say to Kanye: “Baby, you know the kind of photos they made for me! Haha. ”
West announced his candidacy for President of the United States on Saturday, just four months before election day.

“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 ‘, he tweeted on Saturday.
The rapper has sparked speculation over the years that he could potentially enter the presidential race someday, most recently in November, when he said he planned to run in 2024.
It is unknown whether he has filed official documents to appear on state ballots this year.
Although there is no official deadline for participating in the presidential race, candidates must meet certain filing requirements under ballot access laws which vary by state.
The deadline for adding independent candidates to the poll has not yet passed in many states, including California.

Saturday’s announcement, which took place amid July 4 celebrations and protests across the country, immediately caused a stir on social media.
His eccentric billionaire colleague Elon Musk was among the first to approve of the rapper and sparked rumors that he could be Ye’s running mate after responding, “You have my full support!” “
Earlier this week, West visited the founder of Tesla and posted a photo on Twitter of their possible brainstorming.
Several fans responded to the announcement by proposing: ‘and can @elonmusk be your VP?’
Kanye’s tweet was mostly greeted with skepticism, a user referring to his infamous Taylor Swift snub at the 2009 VMAs: “I’ll let you finish but no. “

“Is this a ploy to try to get Trump re-elected,” wrote another disciple, accusing him of trying to split the vote for Trump.
Some have theorized that the movement could be just a publicity stunt to help promote a new line of shoes or an upcoming album.
“I hope feverishly [that] it’s just a publicity stunt for a new album because … No! Don’t dare 2020, don’t even think about it, you’ve done enough for a year… Kanye stays at home, ”said one user.
West did not provide more details on his campaign or party affiliation with his announcement, he and Musk have thrown their support behind Trump in the past.
Twitter immediately exploded with memes reacting to Kanye’s announcement on Saturday night
In May, Musk thanked Trump for suggesting on Twitter that the Tesla plant in California should be allowed to stay open in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In October 2018, Kanye sadly revealed his support for Donald Trump following a strange rant on Twitter that raised concerns about the rapper’s mental state.
Shortly after, he visited Donald Trump himself in the White House, wearing the President’s MAGA hat and delivered a disjointed and blasphemous speech in which he discussed alternative universes and his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which, according to him, was in fact sleep deprivation.
The activist who became a reality star visited the oval office for the first time in May 2018
Addressing a crowd of reporters from the Oval Office, he said the hat looked like a Superman cape and said Trump had made him a billionaire.
Kanye too joked about the presidential candidacy in 2024 during the visit – an idea he will confirm later when he appeared at the annual Fast Company Innovation festival in New York last November.
West had promoted his new line of biodegradable shoes at the event before casually mentioning to the crowd that he was running for president in 2024, which caused laughter in the audience.
