Kanye 2020 isn’t dead yet.
On Thursday, West’s sister-in-law Khloé Kardashian stepped out wearing a beige “Kanye for President” hat. Pairing the statement-making cap with gold hoop earrings, a trench coat, jeans and a Louis Vuitton belt bag, Kardashian held hands with sister Kourtney on a trip to the mall.
The two were followed by cameras, so fans will likely hear the backstory of Khloé’s bold headwear on an upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
West, 41, first teased a potential run for president in 2015. While accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper announced that he had “decided to run for president in 2020.” Since then, West has mentioned his idea numerous times and met with President Trump, both at Trump Tower and in the Oval Office.
In 2016, West expressed what could be the basis of his future political platform. “When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views. I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth,” he explained in an interview on BBC Radio 1.
“We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”
Though West previously indicated that he might challenge Trump in his reelection, it seems the musician has now postponed any plans for a political move to 2024. On January 1, West not only reaffirmed his support for Donald Trump, but also tweeted “2024” and retweeted fans who supported a future President West.
Perhaps Khloé will serve as campaign manager.
