After the Election, Here's What Kanye West Has to Say

Is he still up for running in 2020?

Published 3 weeks ago

With Donald Trump’s recent election to the United States presidency, it seems like Kanye West’s bid for 2020 isn’t so crazy after all.

That’s no slight at ‘Ye, but still, he has no experience at governing, which seems to not matter to the American public. Let’s just say he has a chance.

When it comes to social commentary, Kanye definitely has an interesting take on things. He recently was asked by the BBC about his bid for the White House and gave an answer we can all now pretty much relate to.

“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views,” he told Annie Mac. “I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the (the) truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time to somehow make a difference while I’m still alive, I’m all for it.”

It sounds like he’s still up for the challenge.

Kanye West announced that he was running for president during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. As soon as Donald Trump was elected president over Hillary Clinton, the hashtag #Kanye2020 started circulating over the interwebs. While some were joking, others are taking his possible bid very seriously.

“There's only one man who can save us now #kanye2020,” one Twitter user tweeted. “Well I suppose that's one way to make the prospect of #Kanye2020 seem less improbable #Election2016,” another said.
