United States billionaire rapper, Kanye West has announced his plans to run for president in 2020.
The 43-year-old West made the announcement on Saturday night, July 4, via his official Twitter account.
His words: “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.”
Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk endorsed the announcement. He tweeted: “You have my full support!”
It would be recalled that West had, at the MTV VMAs in 2015, first announced that he would be running for president in 2020. “As you probably could have guessed by this moment, in 2020, I have decided to run for president,” he said.
Also, last November, during a speech at the Fast Company Innovation Festival, he announced again he would be running in 2024. When the audience laughed at his announcement, West replied, “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”
