Kanye West Announces He’s Running For President

Turning a meme and joke that’s been around for years into reality, American rapper Kanye West has announced that he will be running for president this year.

West announced his run via Twitter.

“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”

His announcement received mixed feedback from his audiences.

Tesla CEO ELon Musk was quick to announce his support.

“You have my full support!”

Kanye’s wife, Kim, replied with an American flag emoji.

His tweet also left some people confused, as Kanye has proved many times over that he is a firm supporter of Donald Trump.

Given his support for Trump, many people also said that this was a ploy to divide the black vote between Biden and West, allowing Trump to win.


If Kanye is serious about his run, this delay in announcing his campaign will be a major setback. He has missed the filing deadline for independent candidates in Indiana, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Texas and New Mexico (June 25).

However, he can still file his candidature in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arizona.

However, West didn’t announce his run out of nowhere.


At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, West announced his intentions while accepting the Video Vanguard Award.

“It’s about ideas, bro. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth.”

He added –

“And, yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

He has also talked about creating more jobs in the USA by moving Yeezy’s manufacturing in-country.

“When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”
