Kanye says he’s running for president and the reactions couldn’t have been stronger – 14 favourites
Kanye West has caused controversy on more than one occasion with his support for Donald Trump, praising his approach, pledging to vote for him in this year’s election, wearing the hats.
However, the President isn’t going to be happy with the rapper’s latest move.
We’re not sure how serious he was being, but Kanye livened up the weekend and took the focus away from Trump’s divisive appearance at Mount Rushmore with this extraordinary announcement.
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
