„We must now imprint the promise of The USA by trusting God, unifying our imaginative and prescient and constructing our future,“ West wrote on Twitter Saturday night time. „I am running for president of the US! #2020VISION“
It be no longer obvious how serious he is ready running, on the different hand it seems unlikely the polarizing entertainer could presumably perhaps in actual fact u.s.a. Trump.

Though his foremost other, Kim Kardashian, is amazingly almost a billionaire after selling 20% of her KKW Elegance final month if he is having a ogle to borrow a pair of hundred million.
If West does in actual fact desire to lunge for president, he would want to enact so as an impartial. And even that will presumably perhaps take him acquiring the foremost signatures to earn on November’s ballot. Imperfect knowledge for voters in Indiana, Maine, Unique Mexico, Unique York, North Carolina and Texas — the deadline has already passed to file and you won’t earn a gamble to vote for West. (Except you be pleased to pray to put in writing him in.)
West, 43, made a surreal appearance within the Oval Field of job in October 2018, assembly with Trump after professing his adore for the present president. The transfer ostracized the Chicago rapper from heaps of his mates within the leisure change. Within the reside it turned out West hadn’t even voted within the 2016 election.
Donning a „Invent The USA Big Once more“ hat, the 2 were situation to focus on the president’s enchantment to African Americans. However in actual fact the conversation swung from his IQ — he is within the 98th percentile, he mentioned — to his mental health to Ford desiring to construct the „fliest most improbable“ autos and his comments on live TV for the period of a Hurricane Katrina charity fundraiser that George W. Bush did now not care about Dim of us. The final while, he examined tv producers‘ censor buttons.
The two in actual fact did focus on West running for president, mediate it or no longer.
Trump mentioned the rapper „could presumably perhaps very properly be“ a future presidential candidate.
„Simplest after …“ West responded, relating to after Trump left situation of job.
„That’s appropriate, I am contented to hear that,“ Trump mentioned.
It seems, he is moved up the date.

Kardashian visited the White Condo most honest no longer too lengthy ago in March alongside with three varied ladies who had their sentences commuted by the president.
For what it is price, Kardashian tweeted an American flag emoji in accordance alongside with her husband’s declaration.
One tweet sooner than he made his proclamation, West shared a July 1 photo with presumably the suitable celeb resolve extra polarizing than himself: Elon Musk.
