Standing on the need to build the future, American rapper, Kanye West, who is a vocal supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that he would run for president in 2020.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Kanye West announced his intention to run for the post of president on Saturday in an apparent challenge to Trump and his presumptive Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“We must now realise 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 in a Twitter post, adding an American flag emoji and the hashtag. #2020VISION.
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

It was not immediately clear if he was serious about vying for the presidency four months before the November 3 election or if he had filed any official paperwork to appear on state election ballots.
The deadline to add independent candidates to the ballot has not yet passed in many states.
Kanye West and his equally famous wife Kim Kardashian West have visited Trump in the White House.
At one meeting in October 2018, the American rapper delivered a rambling, profanity-laden speech in which he discussed alternative universes and his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which he said was actually sleep deprivation.
Elon Musk, the chief executive of electric-car maker Tesla and another celebrity known for eccentric outbursts, endorsed the rapper’s Twitter post: “You have my full support!” he wrote.
You have my full support!
