Kanye West Announces 2020 Presidential Bid
This is it! #2020Vision. Kanye West is running for President and he says he’s doing it sooner than later — as in RIGHT NOW!!! At least that’s how it sounds, anyway.
Kanye announced out of nowhere Saturday on Twitter, saying … “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”
Funny enough, he immediately got the support of one the biggest names in tech — one Elon Musk, who replied, “You have my full support!” Interestingly, the two of them had just hung out a few days before Kanye’s declaration … and they seem like total besties.
Now, back to politics for a sec. It’s not completely crazy that Kanye is announcing this bid for the White House — he’s publicly toyed with the idea several times in the past … perhaps most notably at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Hell, folks thought he’d run in 2016.
