Kanye West Says He’s ‘Running For President,’ Picks Up Elon Musk’s Endorsement

by Mary Rose Corkery


Kanye West said he’s “running for president” on Saturday.

“We must 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 wrote on Twitter Saturday.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk endorsed the 42-year-old rapper’s potential presidential bid on Twitter.

“You have my full support!” Musk said.

West’s newest music hits carry an ongoing religious theme. His most hit, “Wash Us In The Blood” is part of an upcoming album,”God’s Country.”

The rapper has a history of supporting President Donald Trump and made a $2 million donation to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery on June 4. West also donated to set up a college plan for George Floyd’s daughter, Gianna Floyd.

  1. Robert Roark

    Every person who runs for the Presidency or Congress has a “messiah complex”, thinking they are g0ing to resolve everyone’s problems or gripes or wish list. This may or may not be a serious announcement, but, if it is serious, wouldn’t it be appropriate to wait and see what he expects to do as president before dismissing him? I dare say there will be a lot of less qualified people making a similar announcement before long.

    If I was a Democrat and had the choice of voting for Biden or Kanye I would choose Kanye.
