Kanye West Is Running For President of the United States and…Why?


Imagine having a President Yeezy. Well, if Kanye West has his way, the 2020 Presidential election will make it so. Over the fourth of July weekend, West decided to announce his run or President of the United States via Twitter.

Why not? The current President uses Twitter as his connection to the people, so what better way to share the news that you want the highest job in the land.

In Tweet on Saturday (July 4), Kanye made his declaration, while calling for unity.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” Kanye wrote. “I am running for president of the United States Flag of United States ! #2020VISION.”

The announcement comes after Kanye made headlines by paling around and discussing multicultural issues with the current President of the United States, President Trump. Even visiting the oval office for discussions with the current President.

Let’s remember that the rapper announced he would be running for President in 2020 all the way back in 2015 at the MTV movie awards. No one believed him then either. He later changed it to 2024 after his friend Donald Trump won in 2016. Apparently, things have changed again.
