Kanye West Announces He Is Running For President
Kanye West's Announcement Is Met With A Mixed Response
2020 is full of surprises. In a bizarre turn of events, entertainment mogul and rapper Kanye West announced on Saturday, that he is running for President of the United States of America. The rapper announced that he is a Presidential candidate, just four months before the Presidential Elections.
It is being reported that Kanye West has not even filed his candidature papers with the Federal Election Commission or created a campaign committee.
The 43-year old musician and billionaire 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,”
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— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
The tweet was met with mixed responses from thousands of Twitter users as Kanye West became the top trending topic on the social media website.
Kim Kardashian, Kanye's wife, quote-tweeted her husband's initial tweet, with the flag of the United States of America.

Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, announced his support for the billionaire musician by saying, "You have my full support!"

However, not many people are falling for Kanye's announcement and dismissed it as another one of the celebrity's publicity stunts. Not too long ago, Kanye West praised President Donald Trump and defended him when there were calls for Trump to resign. Now it seems that the rapper is running against Trump and it seems that only a handful of people, close to the billionaire, are taking him seriously.
Paris Hilton and Hillary Duff both made fun of the musician as they said,

We took two walks today. Took a family nap. Took a drive. Drove by a raging house party on Mulholland. Assholes. No masks (of course). Girls in bathing suits and louboutins waiting to get in like a line at a club ???? After @matthewkoma and I told Banks she’s too cool to ever need to do that we were steaming...California is in bad shape (in so many ways) but doesn’t everyone think we all want to go out freely and travel and enjoy summer????????♀️ It really seems like Americans just don’t care about each other...somehow this pandemic has turned into a political stance between parties...that’s a head scratcher for me. Other countries have come together in a beautiful way to contain or be Covid free. It’s embarrassing that we are worse than ever because people need to party and Karens won’t wear masks! Oh and I’m running for President.
It remains to be seen whether Kanye West is actually serious about running for President or is it another one of his many publicity stunts.
