Through his official account on Twitter; Kanye West, the American rapper, has announced his intention to run for the 2020 US presidential election.
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

“We must now fulfill Americas promise by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future … running for the presidency of the United States,” West said on his Twitter account.
In the upcoming elections so far, incumbent President Donald Trump for the Republican Party and Joe Biden for the Democratic Party are competing.
This was not the first time that Kanye West had announced his candidacy for the US presidential election, when he announced it 5 years ago, when he said during the MTV Awards Gala in which he sang: “Politics is just entertainment.”
At that time, it was not clear whether West’s announcement was merely a satirical statement from the controversial star, or a fact that will be effectively implemented after 5 years .. But after his tweet it seems that Kanye West will really run the US election race.
Kim Kardashian’s husband is considered a supporter of Trump, and that support caused him to be attacked until he decided via Twitter in 2019 to apologize and withdraw from social media.
