“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 on Twitter on Saturday, with there being no indication that it was a prank or a real intention to act on a promise he made during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
 
West has not given any official statements on a potential presidential run.
 
Kanye West had expressed support for Donald Trump and met with Trump in the Oval Office in October 2018. West has reportedly worked on a prison reform with his wife, Kim Kardashian West.
 
In June, US media reported that Kanye West had set up a college fund for the daughter of George Floyd, Gianna Floyd, and had donated funds to the family of George Floyd, an African-American man who died in police custody in May, sparking nationwide protests. (UNI)
