Kanye West says he’s running for president

Written by on July 6, 2020

Kanye West said Saturday he is running for president in the 2020 US election, an apparent challenge to go head-to-head with President Donald Trump. Not only does it sound like it’s a publicity stunt it’s a bit bizarre because Kanye is pretty much out of time. With the election only four months away, West still needs to register with the Federal Election Commission, present a campaign platform, collect enough signatures to get on the November ballot and more. He has already missed the deadline to file as an independent candidate in many states. Fans immediately tweeted their support for the musician and business mogul, who has a history of promoting himself and his projects with political statements. So far, it doesn’t appear West has any intention of actually running for president. West tweeted, “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 ??! #2020VISION.” Kanye tweeted his plans days after teasing a new song and announcing a new album titled “God’s Country.”
