Call it an attempt on patriotism on the Fourth of July, or maybe just another way to be in the limelight, Kanye West announced that he is running for 2020 US Presidential election. His wife and potential first lady, Kim Kardashian retweeted it. Now, this is an announcement that is taking the netizens a while or more to process. It’s no easy! Soon after the American rapper tweeted his ‘#2020VISION,’ Twitter erupted with funny memes and hilarious reactions, imagining how the country would be with Kanye being the President and Kim the First Lady. #KanyeWest, #KimKardashian and #FirstLady were quick to trend on the microblogging platform as netizens struggle to process the headlines of Kanye running for the upcoming election in the country.
This is not the first time that the rapper had shown his interest in the White House. In 2015, at MTV VMAs, West first announced his plan to run for President in 2020. However, in 2018, the 21-time Grammy winner said he would no longer pursue a career in politics. Again in 2019, he changed his mind and said he would launch a presidential campaign in 2024. On the Fourth of July 2020 celebration in the US, the American rapper once again tweeted regarding his plan to run for President this year.
