Kanye West announces plans to run for president in 2020 US elections


He announced the news in a tweet on American Independence Day







In another top-notch squeeze in 2020, rapper Kanye West has announced his plans to run for US president.
Announcing his plans on the news on American Independence Day, the Jesus Walks star said he would contest against Donald Trump – of whom he has been a vocal supporter – in the upcoming US election.
“We must now realise the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” West said in a tweet. “I am running for president of the United States. #2020vision. ”
His wife, Kim Kardashian-West, being one of the first to respond to the tweet, commenting with a US flag.






This is not the first time West has stated his plans to run for president. In January 2019, he only tweeted “2024”, which many saw as a sign of his intention to run for president, while he also discussed his intentions at a visit to Trump at the White House, when the President said West “could very well be” a future presidential candidate.
He also hinted of his 2024 electoral vision during an appearance at Fast Company's Innovation Festival in November 2019. “When I run for President in 2024," West said, after being interrupted by an outbreak of laughter. "What y'all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk."
It is not clear whether Kanye West has made any move officially at this point to appear on US ballot papers. However, he has received the backing of billionaire technology mogul Elon Musk.



The Tesla founder replied to Kanye West’s tweet saying, “you have my full support”.
The news came few days after West released new single Wash Us, featuring Travis Scott, and announced the upcoming release of new album God's Country.
