SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON/WFXR) — Kanye West announced on Twitter Saturday he is running for president of the U.S.
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” West wrote. “I am running for president of the United States!”
The rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, composer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer ended the tweet with #2020VISION.
Just like with a lot that West does, this announcement quickly gained a lot of attention — even gaining support from Elon Musk and Mark Cuban.
West hasn’t given any additional insight on his supposed presidential run.
