In a bizarre 4th of July tweet, American rapper Kanye West, announced on Saturday that he would run for president in 2020, in an apparent challenge to Trump and his presumptive Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
West who is an ardent supporter of US President Donald Trump, in his tweet wrote, "we must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future", adding an American flag emoji and the hashtag "#2020VISION".
Its not clear though if Kanye is joking about vying for the presidency four months before the November 3 election or if he has filed any official paperwork.
Interestingly, Tesla and Space X CEO, Elon Musk, who is known for eccentric outbursts on social media, endorsed West's post. Musk wrote, "You have my full support!"
