Billionaire rapper, Kanye West, has announced his plan to run for US presidential election in November 2020.
The 43-year-old singer made the announcement on Sunday via his official Twitter account.
He wrote: “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.”
The announcement was endorsed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, who tweeted: “You have my full support!”
West had first at the MTV VMAs in 2015 announced that he will be running for the office in 2020.
“As you probably could have guessed by this moment, in 2020, I have decided to run for president”, he had said.
Last November, during a speech at the Fast Company Innovation Festival, he announced again that he would be running in 2024.
When the audience laughed at his announcement, West replied, “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”
