"[Family and friends] fully support his dream to run for president, and so they feel he's more to supply than what individuals think".
'We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future, ' West tweeted with the hashtag #2020VISION. He continued, "But the fact that he was able to do it - remember when I said I was gonna run for president?"
Kanye West is known for being rather outlandish in his career.
The "Heartless" rapper announced over the weekend he intends on entering the 2020 race for the White House in the USA this November, and although he is yet to register his name as a candidate with the Federal Election Commission, sources insist he isn't joking about his intent to run. West's message was retweeted 479,000 times. The FADER has reached out to Kanye West's representative for more information.
Fans and peers in the industry have noted that he's still unregistered with the Federal Election Commission, that many deadlines have passed to be eligible to appear on November's ballot, his obvious lack of experience for the role as well as Ye's track record of rash and sudden gimmicks.
Biden, the site's favorite, moved down from 5/9 (or -180) to 5/8 (or -160) odds, and President Donald Trump's odds improved with West's announcement, moving from 3/2 (or +150) to 13/10 (or +130). The Kardashians have significantly more followers on social media than Donald Trump and will certainly use that to leverage influence on the American public during the elections.
West has multiple times been pictured in a "Make America Great Again" red cap, including during an Oval Office meeting with the president. Is the "college dropout" president material, or is this a "beautiful, twisted fantasy"?
