Kanye West has declared he is running to be the president of the United States.
The 43-year-old rapper announced via Twitter that he has aspirations of one day becoming the world leader and suggested that he intends to enter the 2020 election.
Je wrote, ‘We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,’ Kanye penned. ‘I am running for president of the United States [US flag emoji]! #2020VISION’

Kanye’s ambition has already received the backing of tech billionaire Elon Musk, who responded: ‘You have my full support!’
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, also showed her support by retweeting his post with an emoji depicting the American flag.
However, it remains unclear whether Kanye seriously intends to run for political office in November. Last year, Kanye teased he’d be putting himself forward for the White House job during an interview with Zane Lowe. ‘There will be a time when I will be President of the United States,’ he told the host.
