American rapper Kanye West has announced he will run for the presidential elections in the United States.
West made the statement with a message he shared on Twitter.
In the West’s message, “We must now fulfill the promise of America by relying on God, uniting our vision and building our future. I’m a candidate for the presidency of the United States!” he wrote.
West had previously expressed admiration for Donald Trump.
Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian and entrepreneur Elon Musk supported West’s nomination.
But it is not known whether West will really put his candidacy.
It is stated that there is no registration in the Federal Election Commission for the elections to be held in November.

The 43-year-old rapper stated that he delayed this date to 2024 last November.
In order to add his name to voter’s compasses, West needs to get support from a certain number of names and register in the states at certain dates.
It is stated in some major states that this date has passed, but there is still time for many.
