2020 has already been a whirlwind, and Kayne West has just announced he will run for US presidency yesterday on Independence Day. Kanye West is a already a successful music artist, producer and fashion designer. However, it is not official yet as it is not clear if he has filed any official paperwork to appear on ballot.
Some people think this announcement is a simple publicity stunt, though others questioned: (according to Politico) How did West go from being a public supporter of President Donald Trump to announcing a run against him?
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” West wrote. “I am running for president of the United States.” Earlier this year we have also seen that Kayne West has declared he will no longer write secular music, strictly all Gospel religious music.
The Grammy winner has already mentioned running for presidency, as last November he said “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”. This would most definitely be a late registration as he is past the deadline for state filing to register as an independent candidate.
