In a four hour interview with Forbes magazine, Kanye West has confirmed that he will run for President in 2020.
The US elections may be on November 3, but West announced on Twitter late last week that he is running for President. He tweeted, “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.”
He has now confirmed he is running for the 2020 – not 2024 – presidency and has hired a biblical life coach named Michelle Tidball as his running mate. Tidball also reportedly runs an online Bible study under the name ‘Abundant Ministries’.
West is reportedly calling his party “Birthday Party” due to the fact that “when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday”.
“When they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious,” he explained “That’s the mark of the beast.
“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
Other promises for a Kanye presidency include re-introducing in schools, claiming that “human beings working for the Devil removed God and prayer from the schools.”
With just four months to the election, even West’s most devoted followers would want to know more about his policies.
“I don’t have a policy when I went to Nike and designed Yeezy and went to Louis and designed a Louis Vuitton at the same time,” he said in reference to having policies on how to run the country. “It wasn’t a policy, it was a design.”
West is the ultimate entrepreneur, but running an economy of 330 million people and signing licensing deals with Adidas and Gap are not quite the same as being the President of the United States of America.
However, with four months still to run, there is ample time for the Grammy award-winning singer to drill down on policy and exactly what he will be standing for, should we vote 1 for the “Birthday Party”.
