Who’s Laughing Now
When Kanye West announced on the VMAs that he plans to run for President of the United States in 2020 most people probably laughed, just as they laughed at Donald Trump during the last presidential campaign. And look who’s laughing now.
Although Kanye didn’t vote in the last election, he said he would have voted for Trump, according to Pink News. And what’s more is that Kanye definitely plans to run for POTUS in the next election. It seems that the surprising win on November 8 for President Elect Donald Trump has set the stage for other non-politicians to run for office, including Kanye West. According to the successful rapper and fashion designer, “It’s not about me, it’s about we right now.”
Although the father of two and husband of socialite Kim Kardashian (She would make a fine First Lady!) doesn’t have all the answers now, like which party he would run with, he does have some noble ideas. “I would like to sit with engineers and come up with solutions and alternatives for people without opportunity.” As an idealist without political views, West said he wants to “make a difference while (he is) alive. I’m going to try to do it.”
Donald Trump will be the first President Elect to have never held a political office. Although a billionaire, Trump was the underdog during this historic election and his resolve to push forward and not let anything hold him back lead to victory. As for Kanye West, we will have to wait and see if joins the new face of politics in the next election or changes his mind.
