Kanye West Announces Official Run For President In The 2020 Election

Kanye West is officially running for President in 2020. 

“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,” West tweeted tonight, along with the hashtag #2020VISION.

You might remember Kanye saying he will run in 2024 back in November, but today’s announcement came as somewhat of a shock. 

Kanye did say during the 2015 MTV VMAs that he would have a potential 2020 run after receiving the Video Vanguard Award from Taylor Swift. 

You can check out his announcement on Twitter below.


“You have my full support!” Elon Musk, tweeted.
