Rapper Kanye West announces U.S. presidential bid on Twitter

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American rapper Kanye West, a vocal supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump, announced on Saturday that he would run for president in 2020 in an apparent challenge to Trump and his presumptive Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

“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,” West wrote in a Twitter post, adding an American flag emoji and the hashtag “#2020VISION”.

It was not immediately clear if West was serious about vying for the presidency four months before the Nov. 3 election or if he had filed any official paperwork to appear on state election ballots.

The deadline to add independent candidates to the ballot has not yet passed in many states.

West and his equally famous wife Kim Kardashian West have visited Trump in the White House.

At one meeting in October 2018, West delivered a rambling, profanity-laden speech in which he discussed alternative universes and his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which he said was actually sleep deprivation.

Elon Musk, the chief executive of electric-car maker Tesla and another celebrity known for eccentric outbursts, endorsed West’s Twitter post: “You have my full support!” he wrote.

Both Kanye West and Musk are crazy "geniuses". Kim Kardashian is crazy like a fox.

Trump thinks he can peel off Black male votes in key battleground areas.

Trump thinks Kanye can or Trump thinks Trump can? Kanye may get the ‘I don’t care who wins’ voters or ‘I don’t like either candidate’ voters just like Trump did four years ago.

I think by now we know that we could do worse than a man with schizophrenia who hallucinates aliens, thinks he's the messiah, spends hours talking about conspiracies, and is prone to violent psychotic breakdowns.

Pretty much anything's better than Drumpf.

Hey! Let's elect that potted plant...

Let's all hope this is a joke; knowing Kanye, it might or might not be. The last thing we need is any sort of splitting of votes, unless it's on Trump's side.

It's a joke - Kanye has no infrastructure and is not on the ballot in any state. He's just having a nice daydream...

he'll get on the ballot in some states where all it takes is money and a bunch of signatures. there will be many legal challenges to ballot access, though, but some of them will be in "friendly" states and SoS offices. still, I doubt it will be enough to take any sizable votes from Biden.

If serious I can only see it taking votes from Cadet Bone Spurs. Maybe it's just me and my leftist bubble but i can't believe that anyone outside of 45's addled brain, fame-enamored base could think it a good idea for Kanye and the Kardashians to run this country.

It will be easier for Kanye to get on a ballot than it will be for some folks to get one at all come November …

Less than two years ago he said he had been used to spread messages he doesn't believe in, and was going to distance himself from politics.

Does anyone have any idea what he does believe in these days?

Rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West has announced that he is "distancing" himself from politics.

West outlined his new apolitical stance in two tweets late on Tuesday, adding he realizes he has been "used to spread messages" he doesn't believe in.

West has been closely associated to President Donald Trump, first by visiting him in Trump Tower shortly after the president's 2016 election victory, and then more recently at the White House.

Now however, the music star has said he wants to exit the political arena. On Twitter, the rapper said his decision was made by the suggestion that he had supported a campaign encouraging black Americans to leave the Democratic party.

This campaign is a tiny fleck of mold you just noticed on the last bite of your sandwich.

The more you think about it, look at it, wonder about it, or talk about it, the more nauseated you'll get.

Ignore it. The sandwich was fine.
