Kanye West announces 2020 presidential bid and Elon Musk endorses him

Kanye West has announced his plans to run for president in 2020.

The 43-year-old Billionaire rapper made the announcement on Saturday night, July 4, via his official Twitter account. 

He wrote: “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! #2020VISION.”

The announcement was endorsed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk who tweeted: “You have my full support!”

Recall that at the MTV VMAs in 2015, West first announced that he would be running for president in 2020.  “As you probably could have guessed by this moment, in 2020, I have decided to run for president,” he said. 

Last November, during a speech at the Fast Company Innovation Festival, he announced again he would be running in 2024. When the audience laughed at his announcement, West replied, “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk.”
