Platinum selling producer, rap artist and fashion icon, Kanye West announced today his 2020 bid to run for president of the United States of America. West set off social media fire works on July 4th with his tweet that announced his presidential plans.

West said he would run for president back in 2015 at the MTV Movie Awards and again in 2019 but that he would run in 2024.

If West were to run for president he would have to run as an independent.
