Kim Kardashian could very well become a First Lady, as Kanye West has announced that he is officially running for president. Stranger things have happened this year…

What are you looking for?

Kanye West took to Twitter to make his official announcement, which has already been liked over a million times and retweeted over 500,000 times…

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," he tweeted.

"I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION"

He has already received quite a lot of support on social media, with entrepreneur Elon Musk writing, "You have my full support!"

This is not the first time Kanye West has spoken about running for president.  At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he mentioned that he would run for president in 2020. However, just last November, he said that he would actually run in 2024.

The 43-year-old has yet to confirm which political party he would be affiliated with in the 2020 contest. And according to reports, he has yet to register his name with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for November's election. Unless, of course, he has chosen a different name that nobody is aware of…

As the election is only four months away, Kanye West has a long way to go if he is actually serious about running for president. He has already missed the deadline to file as an independent candidate in many states, and still doesn’t appear to have a campaign platform.

He also needs to collect enough signatures to get on the November ballot, so it’s all looking pretty unlikely at the moment. Could this all just be a huge publicity stunt for his next album or fashion venture?

The current battle for the White House is between Republican President Donald Trump, and Democrat Joe Biden.

    To me it sounds like Kanye West is running to take away some black voters from Biden. He has expressed his clear support for Trump. He has been wearing the red MAGA hat (Make America Great Again i.e. the 2016 Trump slogan). He has said that if Trump was not running, he would run as a Republican. With Trump running he will run as an independent, which means he will receive write-in votes, and thereby take-away some of the African-American votes from Biden. Every who follows politics in the U.S. just a tiny bit knows that Kanye West has no chance of winning anything. He has no political program, and has an issue with suffering from bi-polar disease, which is possibly one the issues behind his support of Donald Trump, or whether or not he is being abused by the Trump campaign for political purposes. Finally there is also the thing, he is publishing a new record, and he may earn millions of dollars from the huge publicity he receives from running as a presidential candidate.
