Is Kanye West Running For President In 2020?


If the 2020 election cycle hasn’t been wild enough, American rapper Kanye West announced his candidacy for President of the United States in a tweet sent Saturday.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for President of the United States,” West said in a tweet. 

Tesla CEO and businessman Elon Musk responded, saying West has his “full support”.

In 2018, West met with President Trump in the Oval Office to have a conversation on a wide range of topics from criminal justice reform to U.S. manufacturing.

According to NPR, Trump was asked whether West would make a good presidential candidate in the future to which he responded that he “could very well be”.

“Only after 2024,” West said.
