American rapper Kanye West asked Twitter users whether to take part in the US presidential election, presenting his candidacy. He published the post on July 22.
“2020VISION or maybe 24… I suppose all blacks should vote for Biden? Do you all want me to run or not? ” he wrote, attaching a photo to the post with a list of song titles from the upcoming album.
Traditionally, only the candidates of the two leading parties — the Republican and Democratic-have a real chance of being elected President of the United States. This year, they are identified as Donald trump and Joe Biden. Trump said that it would be easy for West to take away the votes of black Americans from Biden in the election.
Last week, Kanye West’s name was put on the ballot as an independent candidate in Oklahoma. Earlier, West asked residents of South Carolina to sign a petition for putting him on the ballot.
Earlier, on July 20, he did not provide any signatures for entering his name on the ballot from the state of South Carolina. Neither the artist nor his representative appeared at the state election Commission.
West suggested that the musician Jay-Z become his candidate for the post of Vice President. According to him, he and Jay-Z are “brothers” and “connected for life”.
