Kanye West Announcement On Running For President
On 4 July 2020, Kanye West brought tremors on Twitter when he tweeted about standing up as a candidate for President for the 2020 elections. He tweeted, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for President of the United States! 🇺🇸 #2020VISION”. Twitter could not believe it with most of the people trolling Kanye West. Many think he doesn’t know politics and this is probably the dumbest move he ever made.
Kanye West Starts With Presidential Campaign
On 19 July 2020, Kanye West did his first presidential campaign. His words told that he had not the slightest idea of how a President works. The campaign was held in South Carolina at a wedding and conference hall. The campaign rally was meant for limited people with entry only through prior registration. However, his campaign website did not have any link for registration. Moreover, there was no audience microphone, and Kanye had to shush the audience to hear the questions. It looked like Kanye, and his team were way too under-prepared for their first rally.
Kanye West Kicks Out Campaign In Unusual Manner
Even though one thought of his presidential run as a joke, his outfit for the campaign added to the circus, Kanye and his family are known for going unorthodox with everything. He did not disappoint when it came to his campaign. He shaved the back of his head show 2020 on his head. Moreover, he wore a safety vest that had ‘Security’ written on it. Kanye is already way behind his competitors as he has missed the deadline to make it to the ballots of many states. Now he needs to collect 10,000 signatures before noon on Monday to qualify for South Carolina’s ballot.
Coronavirus Scare At Kanye’s Campaign
Coronavirus has hit the US like a nuclear bomb, but Kanye seemed to be least bothered about it. As a precautionary measure, all the attendees had to wear a face mask and sign a COVID-19 liability release form. They were also asked to maintain social distancing. However, the rule was not enforced strictly, as many were screaming and asking questions without a face mask. Even Kanye West was facing the crowd without a mask.
