Kanye is announcing this bid for the White House — he’s publicly toyed with the idea several times in the past … perhaps most notably at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Hell, folks thought he’d run in 2016.
West is already facing a very busy second half of 2020 without a run for president, as he recently signed a 10-year deal with Gap GPS (worth a reported $100 million) and he’s just recently released two new songs, including “Wash Us in the Blood,” which appears to be the first single from his upcoming album God’s Country.

Kanye got the support of one the biggest names in tech — one Elon Musk, who replied, “You have my full support!” Interestingly, the two of them had just hung out a few days prior to Kanye’s declaration … and they seem like total besties.
You have my full support!
