2024

As we all recall, Kanye West announced his intention to run for President of the United States at the VMA Awards in 2015 in a speech to the audience.

In case you need a refresher here's some of his original presidential sentiments:

'I will die for the art, for what I believe in. The art ain't always gonna be polite. Y'all might be thinking right now, "I wonder, did he smoke something before he came here?" The answer is yes, I rolled up a little something to knock the edge off. I don't know what's gonna happen tonight. I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow, bro.'

'This is a new mentality. We're not gonna control our kids with brands. We're not gonna teach low self esteem and that to our kids. We gonna teach our kids that they can be something,' he continued. 

'I don't know what I'm finna lose after this, it don't matter though cause it ain't about me. It's about ideas bro, new ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.'

He later decided to postpone his presidential pursuits until 2024, following a meeting with current Leader of the Free World Donald Trump in Trump Towers in 2016.

After posing for a few pictures with the president, the rapper refused to answer any questions about his visit, but later announced his move to run for president in 2024. 

The original tweet, posted on December 13th 2016, has since been deleted, but simply read '2024.'

Kanye has cemented his continued intention with another identical tweet today. 

He also let his followers know that he continues to support Donald Trump, tweeting 'Trump all Day.' 

'We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us.'

'They will not program me. Blacks are 90% Democrats. That sounds like control to me.' he continued. 

He also validated his belief in 'Free Thought.'

There was some confusion yesterday after Kanye West strolled into Trump Towers in New York City to meet with POTUS Donald J Trump.

After posing for a few pictures with the president, the rapper refused to answer any questions about his visit.

The rapper, who has previously made his ambitions for presidency in 2020 clear, later tweeted: 

Yeezy, who didn't vote in this year's election, seems to have moved his ambitions back four years after his meeting with the POTUS. 

He also took to Twitter to reveal the details of their discussion. 

"I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," tweeted the rapper. 

"These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernising curriculums, and violence in Chicago." 

"I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change."

No official details of their meeting have been released.

Kanye was recently released from hospital after suffering from a break down caused by exhaustion, and is currently in outpatient treatment.
