Pop Star Taylor Swift’s Fans Want Her Against Kanye West For The Next Presidential Run
During the 2015 VMAs, Kanye first declared that in 2020 he would be running for president. Since then he has been close friends with the current President Donald Trump. He has been waiting for his chance to dip his feet in the presidential run for the past 5 years. Now recently on the 4th of July in 2020, he reignited that flame. He tweeted that he was planning on running for president in 2020 and the Internet went crazy.
1Kanye for president
A shockwave was sent across the internet when rapper Kanye West announced his decision to run for president. He made headlines earlier this week when he posted on social media “#2020 Vision”. Nobody knows for sure if he’s talking about this year’s presidential election or the next one in the coming years. This is mostly because it is too late to begin a campaign.
2What his post was
He sent out a tweet on Saturday night on the 4th of July that read as follows “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 … #2020 VISION”. This made headlines and sent the internet into a landslide of comments.
3Not the first time he said this
This was not the first time Kanye West shared his intentions to run for the Oval Office. It was back in 2015 when he first announced at the MTV Video Music Awards that he would be running for president. This was his moment so people to it with a grain of salt. But right now it feels like the rapper is taking this seriously.
4Experts weighed in on this
Many electoral experts were quick to weigh in on this. Most of them pointed out that chance of entering the election. This was because he had already missed the deadline to file as an independent candidate. He missed the deadline in many states but can still appear on the ballot for some other states.
5His political standing
Over the years Kanye West has proven to be a vocal supporter for President Donald Trump. Many people have criticized him for supporting President Trump. After his tweet blew up on the Internet many people began saying on social media that this was a publicity stunt to promote his upcoming 10th Studio album titled ‘God’s Country’.
