Kim Kardashian will 'fully support' Kanye West's 2024 run for president but rapper says 2020 bid is 'God's plan'
Their marriage could come to an end as quickly as December because the rapper is not willing to compromise and push back his run for the Oval Office to 2024
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's marriage could come to an end as quickly as December because the rapper is not willing to compromise and push back his run for the Oval Office to 2024, sources have claimed. Kanye had sparked a frenzy on Independence Day when he tweeted that he would be gunning for the presidency and has since made a series of remarkable revelations about his private life and marriage to the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star.
During an explosive first presidential rally in South Carolina on July 19, the Chicago native donned a bulletproof vest, shaved '2020' into his head, and broke down in tears as he revealed Kim had wanted to abort their first daughter North West. A few days later, he embarked on a remarkable Twitter rant where he claimed he has been trying to divorce her for two years and branded mother-in-law Kris Jenner a "white supremacist." Those tweets have since been deleted.
Sources told the Sun that Kim was exasperated by his behavior but was still trying to be supportive of her husband. She has reportedly offered to let his outbursts be bygones on the condition that he drop out of the presidential race this year and try for 2024 instead but has been met with opposition from him."She offered to fully support a 2024 run for president if he got help and listened to the political consultants they hired," the source said. "But Kanye seems set on what he calls 'God's plan' - that he becomes president. He's saying it's a higher calling."
Following a brief hiatus from social media, the 'Stronger' hitmaker had taken to Twitter to post, "THE GOAL IS TO WIN." It was seemingly a bid to clarify speculation that his presidential bid is not just to hurt the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden but "to win."

That tweet, however, came as he and Kim traveled to the Dominican Republic "in hopes of saving their marriage." Insiders said the timing proved he was not willing to compromise with Kim and that their marriage was doomed.
"Kanye has made it clear that he will continue to run for president," a source told People. "Kim is not happy about it, but this isn't her focus. She just wants to do what's best for the kids. And she thinks finding a way to save her marriage is what's best for them."
"Kim thought that time away with the kids would remind him of his most important job - being their dad," another insider shared. "None of their friends can see the marriage lasting more than a couple of months if he ignores Kim and her requests and just goes ahead with what he wants, even if it upsets her. Nobody would be surprised, or blame her if she quietly ended things by Christmas."
Kanye may yet drop out of the race. MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) reported how the 43-year-old fell short of qualifying for the Illinois ballot as an independent candidate by 1,300 signatures after an official review of his nomination petition. If the Illinois State Board of Elections upholds that finding, it would be mathematically impossible for West to be elected president even if he won every single state where he could get on the ballot.
