Kanye West Makes His 2020 Presidential Run Official – #2020VISION


Kanye West is making his ambition to become the next American president official. On the 4th of July, the billionaire rapper and entrepreneur took to Twitter to make a big announcement, saying he’s running for the presidency in 2020.

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

Although his announcement was greeted with mixed reactions, some big-name in the American culture seemed to give him their full support, including Elon Musk. “You have my full support!” tweeted the Telsa CEO, while Mark Cuban added, “If there was Rank Choice voting available and Kanye West was on the ballot with Joe Biden and Donald Trump, I would have Kanye West ahead of Donald Trump.”

Kim Kardashian equally responded to her husband’s announcement by retweeting his message along with the American flag emoji.

In 2015 while on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye first announced his plans to run for the presidency in the 2020 election before delaying his ambition to 2024 to allow President Trump a second term.

Meanwhile, he was at the White House in 2018 to discuss criminal justice reform with President Trump. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now,” Ye said during their meeting in the Oval Office. “And he might not have expected to have a crazy motherfu**er like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe we are going to make America great.”

In 2019, West also shared his political aspirations during the Fast Company Innovation Festival in November 2019. “When I run for president in 2024, we gonna definitely…” he said before being interrupted by laughter from the crowd. “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run; I’m going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye’s crazy—one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!”

However, it may be too late at the moment for Ye to enter the 2020 race. West has reportedly yet to register as a candidate to get on state election ballots and has already missed the deadline for states, including Indiana, New York, and Texas.
