Known for speaking his mind, not being very expressive, and referring to himself as “the biggest living rock star on the planet,” Kanye West – the rapper who has won the many awards – reaffirmed his aspiration for the presidency again, something that had already been made public five years ago at the MTV Awards.
In 2018 he said it would be a cross between Donald Trump’s campaign and Bernie Sanders’ principles, but can he run? With the presidential election just four months away, West would still need to register with the Federal Election Commission, present a campaign platform, and collect enough signatures to get on the ballot, which is complicated because several states have already closed their deadlines.
I Support Trump
Many remember the image that in 2018 attracted attention: Trump received West in the Oval Office of the White House to speak about the prison system, a key moment, where the rapper even called the president a hero.
But Kanye would not come alone to the White House, his wife the model and businesswoman Kim Kardashian would be the replacement for Melania Trump.
Many on social networks already compare them:
But it seems that the Kardashian leader wants to be compared more with another first lady, with Jacqueline Kennedy and this was demonstrated in this photo for a magazine where she posed with his daughter North West.
However, during protests over the murder of African-American George Floyd at the hands of the police, the singer distanced himself from the president and announced his own aspirations. It is not clear if they are only longings or if indeed the name of Kanye West will appear on the ballots in November.
