NUSADAILY.COM – JAKARTA – Rapper, American producer and celebrity Kanye West, apparently not quite satisfied with the myriad of achievements. On the American birthday July 4 yesterday, he announced he would run for US President in the 2020 elections.
West began this extraordinary idea by writing a statement on his personal Twitter account.
“We must now fulfill America’s promise by trusting God, uniting our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! ” He then added the hashtag # 2020VISION.
There has been no other official statement stating that Kim Kardashian’s husband is serious about his grand plans. The US election is only a matter of months away. The deadline for independent candidates in elections has not been exceeded in many states.
Cuitan Kanye West was welcomed positively by Elon Musk, chief executive of the electric car maker Tesla.
“You have my support!” he wrote.
“Dream” of being US President Long ago
In fact this is not the first time West has spoken of his candidacy as the leader of the superpower. Reporting from Forbes, last November, the Grammy winner had said he would run for president in 2024.
“When I run for president in 2024, we will have created so many jobs that I will not run, I will run,” West said.
Previously, during a speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he revealed plans to run for president in 2020.
Even though everyone knows, Kanye West is a person who openly supports Donald Trump. Over time, his support also had subsided.
In 2018, West claimed he wanted to stay away from politics. “My eyes are now wide open and now I have become accustomed to spreading messages that I don’t believe. I distanced myself from politics and was entirely focused on being creative, “West said at the time. And since then he has focused on music and the fashion business.
West is quite busy and recently signed a 10-year contract with Gap GPS (reported $ 100 million). In addition, West has also just released two new songs, including “Wash Us in the Blood”, which drew much criticism and praise at the same time.
Now American citizens and maybe the world will be waiting for surprises especially those raised by Kanye West. Is the chat just a fad, or is there another purpose behind it, or is he really serious about running for President of the United States? We wait for it. (lna)
