It appears that American rapper Kanye West couldn’t hold his horses till 2024 and announced his bid for the presidency in 2020.
The famed musician turned to his social media with a Fourth of July tweet and a piece of big breaking news about him running for President in the 2020 general 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,” he wrote.
He sent the tweet only a short while after US President Donald Trump marked the US Independence Day on the White House South Lawn, avowing an erasure of “the radical left.”
Only minutes after West’s tweet, the hashtag #Kanye2020 surged as a top trend on the micro-blogging site.
While fans had already voiced their support for West, bigwigs such as Elon Musk too entered the scene and endorsed the rapper.
“You have my full support!” said the Tesla CEO in response to West’s statement.
