In a new twist for 2020, Kanye West just announced he would be running for president on Twitter and seemingly for this year. The announcement came in a tweet where he said, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” he wrote. “I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.” Now if this is the case, that comes as a surprise given how few have been bigger supporters of Donald Trump over the last 4 years than Kanye West. He gave an epic monologue from the Oval Office and his wife Kim Kardashian has enjoyed a clear line of communication with the President assisting in criminal justice reform efforts. So far no comment from the West/Kardashian camp has been made and no FEC filings have been made yet.

Kanye already has a supporter in his friend Elon Musk who responded to the tweet, “You have my full support!” The two have also been spending time together over the week according to recent pics they took. He has a 10 year deal with GAP debuting next year so, so much for that. The last time he spoke about running was last November at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival where he said he would be running in 2024 saying, “When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”

To describe Kanye West as unpredictable would be an understatement. Whether he chooses to run for president this late in the game this year is yet to be confirmed but if he does, it will definitely be a monkey wrench thrown in and quite an entertaining one. Can’t wait to see what The Donald has to say about this…
