If you somehow missed it, Kanye West is back on Twitter. If you are on the website yourself, it's hard to miss it. The rapper hasn't shied away from bold proclamations, inspiring self-help mantras and even album announcements -- not only for himself, but other musicians -- since his return to the social media site. In the midst of all that tweeting and raving, Kanye also claimed, yet again, that he will be running for president. As his latest string of posting showed, he still have political aspirations in mind, and he even has a slogan in mind: "Keep America Great." As it is made evident, Kanye is emulating one person in particular in his political hopes.
Kanye West teased his presidential hopes, yet again, when he boldly said the following statement. Even without clear context, we all knew what he was saying.
As this tweet makes clear, Kanye West wasn't kidding around when he talked about running for president during the 2015 VMAs. During that awards show speech, Kanye claimed he would be running on the 2020 ticket, so the influential musician is waiting until the following political cycle to make his run official. Seemingly, Kanye is waiting until 2024 in the event that President Donald Trump concludes his second presidency. It's only then that he'll attempt moving into the White House with Kim Kardashian West by his right-hand side. West hasn't made his affections for Trump a secret, and during his recent social media return, Kanye was seen wearing one of Trump's "Make America Great Again" red hats, which sparked even more strong opinions and vocal outrage from social media users than his past string of tweets. In any case, Trump isn't the only one West is trying to earn favors from during his political proclamations. Kanye West is also referring to himself as the "future president," because Kanye is never less than bold.
Kanye West also has some plans for the Air Force One. More specifically, he has a new name in mind.
That's pure Kanye West right there. Kanye's political dreams also extend both social media. Residents in Chicago, his hometown, L.A. and New York City might've seen posters with Kanye's face, along with "Keep America Great" and "#Kanye2024" written on the top and bottom, respectively, according to these new photos -- unless, of course, they're photoshopped. In any case, Kanye is making himself known.
Kanye West doesn't consider himself a politician. In fact, Kanye says he "hates" politicians. But he did announce what he hopes to achieve inside the Oval Office.
I hate politics. I'm not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that's all I can say, and I think we can.
Both Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West have come to Kanye West's defense after he received backlash. When there were rumors that Kris and Kanye were fighting while Kanye was acting erratically, Kris claimed that "wasn't true." Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian continues to stand by Kanye's stand throughout this ordeal. The reality TV star also went onto social media to attack those claiming Kanye West is potentially mental ill.
Whether Kim Kardashian West is doing damage control or simply setting the record straight, she continues to stand by her man.
Kim Kardashian West also went so far as to claim that Kanye West is ahead of his time in his political announcements and declarations.
Of course, this is not the last time we'll hear from Kanye West, maybe even President Kanye West -- especially on social media. While other celebrities have announced their interest or intentions in running for president during or since Donald Trump's campaign, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Lindsay Lohan, Kanye West keeps his political dreams in the forefront of his vision. We'll have to wait and see how they pan out in the future.
