Kanye West Announces 2020 Presidential Run


(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Kanye West announced on the Fourth of July that he plans to run for president in 2020 — potentially to make good on a promise he made five years before during the 2015 MTV VMAs.

“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 Saturday evening, along with the hashtag #2020VISION.

The announcement was quickly endorsed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk who tweeted at the 43-year-old, “You have my full support!” 

Having leaned more into politics in recent years, including a handful of meetings with Donald Trump, the announcement follows numerous statements by West in the past about his intentions to run for the highest office in the land — most recently lst November at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival. The difference with that announcement was his presidential sights were set on a 2024 bid.
