KANYE West announced to his fans on the Fourth of July that he plans on “running for president of the United States.”
Tesla CEO and Kanye’s friend, Elon Musk, quickly offered up his “full support” to the 43-year-old.
The father of four, who’s married to reality star Kim Kardashian, told fans he’s got “2020 vision” and has his sights set on the country’s highest political position.
Kanye 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 Flag of United States!”
Elon, 49, soon replied, telling Ye: “You have my full support!”
This comes just days after Kanye posted a photo of himself and Elon hanging out at home together, captioning the shot: “When you go to your boys house and you’re both wearing orange.”
Shortly after the rapper made his big announcement on Saturday, #Kanye2020 began trending on Twitter.
Some fans are voicing their support for the hip-hop artist, but many are shutting down the idea that they’d possibly vote for him.
One supporter tweeted a driving gif, writing with it: “Me driving to the polls to vote for Kanye West.”
Another called Kanye and Elon “the unlikely heroes of 2020.”
Some of those against the idea of the fashion designer running for president jokingly called for Taylor Swift, who he’s had a feud with for years, throw her hat in the ring.
One opposed to his presidential run blatantly tweeted: “As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Trump’s professional bootlicker is joining the presidential race.
“Nobody asked for another clown in the White House. This seems like a cheap publicity stunt.”
Another wrote: “Just when I thought July couldn’t get any worse…. Thanks Kanye.”
A third said: “We gotta be in the Bad Place.”
