Rapper Kanye West, a popular Hip-pop musician and fashion designer in an Independence tweet announced that he is running for the office of the President of the United States of America in the 2020 elections.
The 43-year-old West, who was once a vocal supporter of incumbent President, Donald Trump, said his goal was to build the future of America.
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— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
His tweet announcing his decision on Sunday morning reads, “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.”
West is already pulling support after his declaration to run for the top office.
West met Trump at the Oval Office in 2018, and held a press conference in which he used some expletives. West also told Trump how much he admired him.
In 2019, during an interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music’s Beats 1 show, West claimed his support for Trump was an attempt to rile Democrats, and announced his presidential ambitions. “There will be a time when I will be the president of the US, and I will remember…any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing,” he said without clarifying.
Technology entrepreneur and Billionaire, Elon Musk expressed joy at West’s announcement and tweeted saying “You have my full support!” Musk wrote in a tweet.
You have my full support!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 5, 2020
