The first time Kanye made this declaration was on stage in 2015 during the MTV Video Music Awards. This time around though, the reactions are a lot more livid.

Kanye West to run for president

With a bunch of conspiracy theories flying about, opinions are in abundance on what people think about Kanye’s presidential ambition this time. The camps are split into two not so equal parts. It’s basically this – vote Kanye or don’t! Kanye West Trump.

Here’s why…

Team vote Kanye Kanye West Trump.

This camp seems to comprise mostly of Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s fans. These individuals say they’d vote for him simply because they love his music. Another school of thought from these supporters is that Kanye is a better choice than the other top candidates, the Republican Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democrat.

This camp is not quite as populated as the opposing camp. At least, not on Twitter. Some even claim that they will be voting for the artiste as a joke.

Team don’t vote for Kanye

On the other side, there is an anti-Kanye presidency protest going on. Many individuals have taken to TikTok, a popular video making social app, to protest and have been quick to remind us about Kanye’s very vocal support for the current presidency of Donald Trump in the past. Kanye West News.

It is on this backdrop that many of them believe, almost unanimously that Kanye West is only running for president to slash the black vote of the Democratic candidate, Biden, and allow Trump to win. Others have unfairly cited his bipolar disorder diagnosis as ‘reason enough to NOT vote for him’. 

To this effect, Reuters recently revealed that the Trump administration had granted Kanye’s Yeezy between 2 to 5 million USD in its Paycheck Protection Programme that is supposed to help small businesses. This has people suggesting that Trump paid off Kanye to run for presidency only to steal votes from Biden.

In response to this, Kanye supporters say that if Biden had a strong campaign then voting for Kanye wouldn’t change his possibility of winning.

In other news, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, was one of the very first celebrities to support and endorse Kanye’s ambition along with wife, Kim. 

More opinions…

Of course there are the jokes.
