While primary election results for the US Presidential race is widely available, there is one aspect that nobody seems to talk about. Apart from Trump and Biden, the election is also going to witness a late entrant in the form of Hip Hop Star and Rapper, Kanye West. Yes, that’s right. The Stronger singer has always been vocal about his presidential plans and if the latest reports are to be believed the late entrant, in theory, will be placed as the challenger to the current President, Mr. Donald J. Trump.
1. Latest Declaration
During significant occasions, Kanye West has spoken about his long term plans for being President. For example, during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he came out and talked about this particular interest and wanted it to take shape in 2020. But his very latest declaration comes in the form of a tweet stating “to realise the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future.” This was a clear bolt, considering the fact that Mr. West was an admirer of Trump.
2. Lack of Formal Party Affiliation
Unlike other candidates, Kanye West does not have a formal party affiliation or a comprehensive policy agenda. Looking into his history, it is also difficult to talk about his future plans since Kanye is known for surprises. But without all these aspects, it is also unclear as to what will make Kanye West a considerable candidate for Presidency. Why will people go out to vote for Kanye? Well, if you have been pondering over the same question, then you need to know that Kanye has already received support.
3. Elon Musk to the Rescue
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk was one of the first individuals who promised Kanye West his complete support. While the rest of America was a bit confused about Kanye standing for elections, the CEO of Tesla seems to be confident and enthusiastic about the process. A rap artist without any form of political backing or affiliation coming to stand for the post of President is indeed a confusing area that may or may not receive clarification in the near future.
4. What’s on Kanye’s Mind?
As we mentioned earlier, it is too early to make assumptions and think about what might happen. Based on the current stages, the kind of support and leadership America requires is quite clear. Valid economic reforms, a form of relief against racial hatred and a right plan to fight the ongoing pandemic. When you put all these requirements into the surface, the average voter needs a lot more than what is being promised. But the only way to find out would be to wait and see for yourself.
