Kanye West said Saturday he’s running for president in the 2020 US election, an apparent challenge to go head-to-head with President Donald Trump.
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future,” West tweeted. “I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”
His married woman Kim Kardashian West and enterpriser Elon Musk supported him.
But it’s unclear whether or not West is de facto running.
He doesn’t seem to own registered his name with the Federal committee (FEC) for November’s election. The nearest name the FEC information shows may be a candidate known as “Kanye Deez Nutz West”, United Nations agency filed their papers with the Green Party in 2015 beneath the address “1977 Golddigger Avenue, Suite Yeezus” and seems to own raised no cash.
In his tweet on Saturday, West didn’t say if his supposed run would be related to a selected organization.
In any case, contesting the nomination of 1 major party would be not possible at this stage, with the election solely four months away.
In order to look on the ballot as associate degree freelance candidate, West would gather a definite quantity of signatures and register in states by a selected point in time. The point in time has already passed in some major states however the music star would still technically have time to get into several others.
