People have always been cracking jokes by saying things like “Kanye 2020”, but it would seem that this has possibly become a reality. Kanye West recently took to Twitter to announce that he would be running for the President of the United States in 2020
Why This Isn’t a Good Idea
Although Kanye 2020 sounds like a funny idea, in reality, this shouldn’t be something that is happening. Unforteuanley, Donald Trump being elected for President in 2016 proved that truly anyone can run for POTUS and have a shot at winning. There have been a large number of people quick to show their support for the artist. Some of those who have spoke out in support of West include Elon Musk.
Elon Musk and Kanye West are both quite successful in their own fields, but in no way does that mean that they understand politics enough to run for President. Both of these men have been known to be quite dramatic at times. Prior to our current president, that was not something typical of a POTUS. Although West is running against Trump he had previously advocated for him. West’s comments on slavery weren’t any better, and go to further prove why you shouldn’t waste your vote on him.
Kanye 2020 will only go to take votes away from candidates that could actually make a positive change. Although we do not currently have the best options with Donald Trump (seriously don’t vote for that guy though), and Joe Biden, to put thought into Kanye being president is just a waste of time.
What do you guys think though?
Are you surprised to see Kanye West for President being a possibility? Would you support Kanye 2020? And if not who do you plan on voting for in the upcoming election?
