People’s Reaction

Despite the support from Musk and his wife, not everyone is happy with the announcement. 

Some people took the singer’s declaration as a joke. 

Other people think that it is a conspiracy to make US President Donald Trump win again.  

Fulfilling His Promise?

West’s Twitter announcement is not the first time the famous rapper declared his desire to run for Presidency.

In 2015, West announced his decision to run for President in 2020 during the MTV Video Music Awards. 

Although he also admitted that he may have been under the influence when he said that.

“The answer is yes, I rolled up something,” he told the audience during that time. 

In 2019, the singer also told an audience at a Fast Company Innovation Festival his plans to run for the Presidency position in 2024. 

“When I run for President in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs, that I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk”, he said.
