Recently Kanye West announced that he plans on running for President at the next election in 2020. Announcing this news caught Kim Kardashian off guard as she didn’t know he was even thinking about running. Kanye West made his announcement during the VMAs while accepting an award on stage. As expected the Kardashian women gave him a standing ovation and praised him as he walked down from the stage.
In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, EW reported on September 30, Kardashian confirmed that her husband is serious about running for presidency. She also admitted that she had no idea he was going to make that announcement during the VMAs nor did she know if it was just a spur of the moment announcement. It has been reported that West may have smoked something before he took the stage by storm, however sources have confirmed that he has some support from the Democratic Party.
Philly reported on September 30 that the couple expect to be moving in to the White House come the year 2020. While many fans believed that Kanye West was pulling their leg, it has now been confirmed that West is fully serious about running for President. Kim Kardashian admits she is shocked he didn’t talk it over with her first as that is some shocking news he threw at his new wife.
Though Kardashian goes on to joke how she’s scared West will spend his entire first term just redecorating the White House. The interview went on to show West’s take on the announcement, he claims he was sitting in the club when it hit him that in a mere five years he would be running a country. He admitted there was a lot of research and a lot of growing up to do before his time actually came.
On September 29 Hollywoodlife reports that Kanye West was forbidden from giving President Obama any words of wisdom about his current presidency position. There will be an upcoming DNC performance in which West and Obama will be in the same vicinity. West was given strict orders not to give Obama any presidential advice or words of wisdom on how the President is currently running the country.
Though it has been made very clear to West that he is not to speak of anything presidential with Obama, it is unclear as to whether or not he will listen. Throughout the years Kanye West has been known to take people by surprise and over look authority. However one thing is for certain, West will be performing his new songs off of his upcoming album. Tickets for this event are going at a pricey rate of nearly $10,000 a ticket! Proceeds from the DNC event are said to be helping communities and neighborhoods with education, job creation issues, clean energy and health care.
While there are some skeptics about West’s presidency, one thing is for certain, his wife Kim Kardashian fully supports her husband with whatever decision he may make. She has mentioned in an interview that if he sets his mind to it, she is sure he will succeed. With the full support from all of the well known Kardashians, it is almost certain Kanye West will be the new U.S. president of 2020.
