Kanye West Announces 2020 Presidential Run

Kanye West has returned to headlines recently, whether for his 10-year deal with Gap (Yeezy Gap will arrive next year) or for his latest surprise single “Wash Us In the Blood” featuring Travis Scott.

But Saturday night, on the Fourth of July, West shared his most important news to date: he’s running for president in 2020.

“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,” West tweeted around 9 p.m. ET. He completed the tweet with an American flag emoji, and the hashtag #2020VISION.

Rumors of West running for president have circulated before — over the past year he’s leaned much more into politics, having a handful of meetings with Donald Trump. This tweet seemingly confirms that he is in fact all in.

Billboard has reached out to his team for comment.

See the tweet below.
