4th of July, Saturday night, Kanye West shared through his Twitter one of his most important news to date: He announces his decision to run for presidency.
“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,” West tweeted around 9 p.m. ET. He completed the tweet with an American flag emoji, and the hashtag #2020VISION.

The post garnered more than 200,000 likes within an hour.
In the recent news, Kanye West has taken the top position of the media headlines, whether for his 10-year deal with Gap or for his latest surprise single “Wash Us In the Blood” featuring Travis Scott.
The rumors of Kanye West running for presidency have been thrown around before — over the past year, he’s learned much more into politics, having a handful of meetings with President Donald Trump himself. This tweet seemingly confirms that he is in fact all in.
West has drawn some scorn from fans over the years for his unabashed support for President Trump and proud donning of a “Make American Great Again” hat at public appearances.
“I’m definitely voting this time. And we know who I’m voting on,” West said at the time.
“And I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over.
“Because guess what: I’m still here! Jesus Is King was №1!”
West implied he was pleased with Trump because of the state of real estate.
“I buy real estate. It’s better now than when Obama was in office,” West told GQ’s editor-in-chief Will Welch.
“They don’t teach you in school about buying property. They teach you how to become somebody’s property.”
What gathered more attention lately is a photo that surfaced online of Elon Musk And Kanye West.
Today, Elon Musk replied to Kanye West’s tweet by saying.
“You have my full support!”
The real question is, who really benefits from this news? What’s behind of this? For what reason? On what end? A distraction? Government play? Kanye West running for president seems out of blue, considering he has stated in the past months and years about his indifference on politics. He consistenly stated that he backed out of politics quite a number of times.
Is The Government Using Kanye West To Strengthen Trump’s Campaign?
I guess we’re going to figure out!
