Kanye 2020: The presidential campaign of the entertainer explained | Politics
It’s officially election year, and many Americans are nervous about the future of the United States of America.
2020 has been a crazy year to say the least. From the loss of icons like professional basketball player and five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to the world learning to maneuver in life wearing a mask due to the COVID pandemic- 19, a lot has happened in 2020.
With all the madness reigning this year, Americans have yet to come to terms with the fact that in less than 16 days the presidential election will take place.
Due to the current state of the United States, when it comes to COVID-19, the election year has become an even greater ordeal.
It’s no surprise that when voters go to the polls, they will see the names of current United States President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden on the ballot.
However, there is one name that will appear on the ballot that raises many eyebrows: Kanye West.
Kanye West is a man of many talents. Known for his music and production career, West is also known for his fashion label Yeezy as well as his marriage to media personality Kim Kardashian.
On July 4, West announced he would run for president via Twitter.
âWe must now fulfill America’s promise by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for President of the United States! # 2020VISION, âWest said.
West is known to have shocked many of his followers and fans, but this one came as a big surprise. It wasn’t immediately clear how serious he was in running for president, but the appearance of his name on the ballots speaks for itself.
Many have expressed that this could very well be a publicity stunt for West to bring public attention to his new album “God’s Country”.
West has created a website that serves as his presidential platform. Similar to the Biden / Harris campaign, if elected president, West hopes to restore a healthy national economy, as well as reduce household debt and student loan debt.
He also expresses how his platform is motivated by faith, as his campaign aims to restore faith and rekindle the constitutional commitment to religious freedom and the free exercise of one’s faith.
Weeks after West announced he would run for president, he then shared who his running mate, 57-year-old spiritual trainer Michelle Tidball, was.
In his now-deleted autobiography, Tidball shares his plans as West’s running mate for the election.
âI look forward to bringing the floor with experience and practical advice on walking as mature adoptive sons manifested on this earth,â Tidball said.
On November 3, West, Tidball and their many supporters will see if the âCollege Dropoutâ hitmaker has done what it takes to become President of the United States of America.
