On Independence Day, Kanye West tweeted that he's running for president. It's not the first time the rapper has declared an interest in taking over the Oval Office. At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he announced at the end of his 11-minute Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech that he's aiming for the highest office: "I have decided in 2020 to run for president."
It's no surprise that wife Kim Kardashian is showing her support after his latest announcement. She retweeted the rapper's July 4 message with an emoji of the American flag. Entrepreneur Elon Musk is also backing Ye, tweeting in response to West's announcement: "You have my full support!"
