Yes, Kanye West has said it before and he said he was 'serious' then too in 2015 when he made an appearance at the MTV Music Awards then. That was when he had plans to run for the President of the United States in 2020. However, now he says he is even more serious about running for president in 2024.
In fact, during his appearance at the Fast Company Innovation Festival this year, he made a pretty serious statement regarding his plans to run in 2024.
He said, completely out of nowhere, with the most serious look on his face, "When I run for president in 2024..."
After this statement from West, and before he could finish his statement, the audience interrupted him with their laughter. Which, in turn, didn't make Kanye very happy and he said, " What ya'll laughing at?" With the most serious look on his face that anyone who saw it would realize he was not joking.
He continued with his most serious statement saying,
"When I run for president in 2024, we could create so many jobs that I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk."
This serious statement and serious look on his face, a person who has picked earwax out of his own ear and then ate it, is planning on running for president within the next four years. Do you think we are in for a boatload of trouble yet again? Yeah, I think so too!
Of course, this time and that time back in 2015 when he made the statement he was running in 2020 weren't the only times he stated ever so seriously that he was planning on running for the presidency. Back in 2018, he tweeted one word or number, that is, "2024" without any other comment.
That was until the next day when he finally finished his tweet by tweeting the statement,
"When we become president we have to change the name of the plane from Air Force One to Yeezy Force One."
Wow, just wow!
So, the next thing you might be wondering about West is that is he a republican? Although Kanye went to visit President Trump at one time, praising him up and down tweeting, "Trump all day", and wearing a MAGA hat to show his support for him, he does not like to label himself.
And, since he doesn't like to label himself or to be labeled by others, the only way for us to get the answer we are seeking is to find out if or when he does run for president. Maybe we don't need the answer to that question as bad as we think we do if that's the case.
What do you think about Kanye West seriously saying he is running for president in 2024? Do you think he will actually go through with it? If so, do you think he even has a chance at winning the presidency in 2024?
