It looks like Kanye West is properly set on becoming President of the United States in 2020, withdrawing his support for current U.S. President Donald Trump, who he’s previously described as a “hero”. The move comes after reports last month of Trump hiding in an underground bunker amid Black Lives Matter protests at the White House.
“It looks like one big mess to me,” West said. “I don‘t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
West also commented on the possibility of taking votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden, stating that “You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
However, West still has a bit of catching up to do, as he’s still yet to develop countless policies for issues that deeply matter to the American populace. He isn’t too worried though, stating that “I don’t know if I would use the word policy for the way I would approach things. I don’t have a policy, when I went to Nike and designed Yeezy and went to Louis and designed a Louis Vuitton at the same time. It wasn’t a policy, it was a design. We need to innovate the design to be able to free the mind at this time.”
He had a slightly different response when asked about his ideas for a tax policy, admitting that “I haven’t done enough research on that yet. I will research that with the strongest experts that serve God and come back with the best solution. And that will be my answer for anything that I haven’t researched. I have the earplug in and I’m going to use that earplug.”
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 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

The prospect of a Yeezy presidency seems unlikely to say the least, but we gotta remember, a former TV host is now the President of the United States, so really, anything is possible.
