American rapper Kanye West has declared interest in the US presidential election slated for 3rd November 2020.
The window for independent candidates to submit their papers to the country’s agency is yet to expire in many US states.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Kanye announced his bid to succeed Donald Trump on Saturday, 4th July, stating that it was through trusting God that he will be able to catapult America to “realising its promise and building its future.”
If Kanye ends up on the ballot, he will be challenging Trump who is seeking reelection and former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, who is also in the race to The White House.
At least 30 aspirants had expressed interest in succeeding Trump but they pulled out of the race and many of them threw their weight behind Joe Biden
Kanye is one of Trump’s biggest followers and apart from expressing his support on social media, he has visited the head of state at The White House
Taking to his Twitter handle, he write:, “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”
