Kanye West for president…Again!

American rapper Kanye West has once again said he is running for president.

The ‘Stronger’ hitmaker tweeted about his political ambitions recently and the news has been spreading like wildfire making him a top trending topic on social media this past weekend.


“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” he tweeted. “I am running for president of the United States!” tweeted Kanye.

However, it’s unclear whether West is really running. According to BBC, he does not appear to have registered his name with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for November’s election. The closest name the FEC database shows is a candidate called “Kanye Deez Nutz West”, who filed their papers with the Green Party in 2015 under the address “1977 Golddigger Avenue, Suite Yeezus” and appears to have raised no money.

It is not the first time West has claimed that he is running for the White House. At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he said he had decided to run for president in 2020.

But last November he pushed the date back, saying he would actually run in the 2024 contest.

In order to appear on the ballot as an independent candidate, West would have to gather a certain amount of signatures and register in states by a particular deadline. The deadline has already passed in some major states but the music star would still technically have time to file in many others.

This year’s contest is likely to be a straight battle between Republican President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.

His wife Kim Kardashian West and entrepreneur Elon Musk endorsed him.
