It’s true – Kanye West has announced that he is running for president

The US rapper tweeted the news on Saturday, 4 July in a bid to challenge President Donald Trump.

“We must now realise the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” he tweeted.

He used the hashtag #2020Vision, which has led to people assuming that he will be joining the November election.
