Kanye Omari West, American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer has declared his candidacy for US president.
The 43-year-old entertainment mogul took to his Twitter page to announce this on Sunday morning.
“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! #2020VISION” West wrote.
According to Theguardian, West and his wife visited Trump in the White House to discuss prison reform. At one bizarre meeting in 2018, West wore a red “Make America Great Again” cap and uttered words such as “motherfucker” and “infinite amounts of universe”. He said Trump made him feel like Superman, hugged him and declared: “I love this guy right here.”
Asked if West could be a future presidential candidate, Trump replied: “Could very well be.”
West replied: “Only after 2024. Let’s stop worrying about the future. All we really have is today. We just have today.”
