Kanye West said independence Day he was running for president in the 2020 US election, an apparent challenge to go head-to-head with President Donald Trump.
At Twitter Kanye posted: “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.#2020VISION”
After that, there was a lively discussions immediately, and related topics reached the top-tip on Twitter quickly. Kanye West is a famous rapper in America. He has won 21 Grammy Awards and is a trend promoter of super “shoes empire”. The annual sales of his Yeezy brand reach 1 billion US dollars. Additionally, he also has attracted much attention as the son-in-law of the Kardashian family.
Some users said: “maybe we can see Kanye and Trump’s starting a rap battle in the election”. Actually, Kanye doesn’t have this idea in the heat or the moment. In 2015, he mentioned that he would run for president of the 2020 US election. Later, he launched many posts to catch more attention on social media. For example, he posted a picture on Instagram and asked his fans’ idea about his joining the US election in 2024.
And he has posted “2024” again and again to imply that he would attend the 2024 general election.
After Kanye’s boom on Twitter, the other celebrities may understand it’s easy to attend the general election and they show their ambitions.
Paris Hilton is gonna run for America president! She promised to support the workforce by wearing only American designers. Unless she wakes up and the day is screaming for her to put on a bikini for her fellow Americans. Country first!
From her campaign, we can see Paris is one of the Republican Party. Well… the users who are good at photography even create the picture of “president Paris”. The Paris campaign slogan is “Make America hot again”.
The next one to run for president is Mike Shinoda, who is a member of the band “Linkin Park”. Meanwhile, he also told people he would have new music out. Most people think he just wanted to promote his new music. And his picture as the “president” is also ready.
Hilary Duff who took a role in Gossip Girl also said she would attend this general election on Instagram.
However, after many celebrities announcing their candidacy, the one that gets the most support has not committed herself. That is Taylor Swift. After Kanye’s post, Taylor’s fans were very furious. Because Taylor’s microphone was taken by Kanye suddenly when she was going to express comment on his award. And Kanye even said he thought Beyonce should get the award, not Taylor.
So the fans believed that Taylor would defeat Kanye and become the first female president of the United States as long as Taylor wants to do.
Below are some comments about Taylor running for the president.
However, the youngest age of the president have to be 35, according to American law. It seems Taylor is blocked by the age, but maybe she can have a try in 2024.
Actually, it is not weird in America to become a president from a star. There are actors in American history who are presidents. Before Reagan becoming a president, he was a super Hollywood actor ever. And President Trump was an actor ever, although he is mainly engaged in reality TV shows.
The ranking website “Ranker” has ever researched which actor will be the best for the president. Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Dwayne Johnson, Oprah, and Harrison Ford are the top of the rankings.
