Kanye West says he's running for president but Internet thinks Taylor Swift is a better candidate
Kanye West has always been vocal about wanting to run for the presidency and it looks like the singer is making his move this time. Taking to Twitter, Kanye said that he is focused on making the future of America better and added that it would be possible if he is elected as the President.
"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," he tweeted. Kanye has always been vocal about his wish to run for president but he has been highly criticized for being a Donald Trump supporter. Recently, the singer had donated $2M towards George Floyd’s daughter's tuitions, including separate donations to take care of legal costs for Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor’s families. The rapper also helped several small businesses. Despite this, people could not get over the idea that he supported Trump and this led to him being heavily criticized.
Meanwhile, others think that Taylor Swift would make a better candidate than him while adding that she should run for the presidency too if Kanye is running. Swift and West have had their differences for a long time and the public has seen it all unwind in front of them. Unfortunately, many of Swift's supporters did not like Kanye's announcement. "#kanye2020 he couldn't even say the truth about Taylor swift why do y'all want another freaking liar," read one comment. "@taylorswift13 HEY QUEEN RUN FOR PRESIDENT AND SAVE US FROM #kanye2020 PLS," said one. "Someone said 'new body' will be the national anthem, and Taylor Swift will serve 20 years in prison," another joked.
Meanwhile, some rejected the idea of Kim Kardashian West being the first lady as one user wrote, "I obviously don’t want kanye as president but everyone acting like kim k as first lady would be the worst thing ever after everything.... is it worms?" while another added, "If kim k*rdash*an becomes First Lady we truly will be living the movie Idiocracy."
While people have been having a hard time accepting his statement, others have been supportive of him. Elon Musk tweeted that he would be there for Kanye if he decides to run. "You have my full support!" he wrote. Another joked, "And can @elonmusk be your VP?"
This is not the first time that Kanye has made such an announcement. "When I run for president in 2024, we would've created so many jobs that I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk," he had said previously, as reported by USA Today.
