In typical Kanye West fashion, the music-clothing magnate took to Twitter to issue an Internet-shattering statement: his bid for the 2020 presidential race.
Ye made the announcement on Fourth of July yesterday, tweeting: “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,” along with the hashtag #2020VISION.
The announcement was quickly endorsed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who replied with “You have my full support!”
You have my full support!
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 5, 2020
Yesterday’s declaration is not the first time the rapper has said he has eyes on the White House. Back in 2015, at the MTV VMA Awards West said he would launch a Presidential race for 2020 and again, just last November the Jesus Is King star asserted that he would be running in 2024. Whether or not, Ye will truly square off against Trump and Joe Biden in the elections this year waits to be seen.
While ‘Ye received an endorsement from Elon Musk, many on Twitter had mixed feelings on West’s potential entry into the 2020 Presidential Election. Check out some reactions below.
