At the MTV VMAs on Sunday, Kanye West apparently threw his hat into the political ring saying that he was going to run for president in 2020 -- and if he actually goes through with it, he already has Rihanna's vote.

ET caught up with the "FourFiveSeconds" singer in New York City on Monday at the launch of her new fragrance RiRi, and the 27-year-old superstar says she'd throw her support behind Kanye.

"I mean people are voting for [Donald] Trump," Rihanna said. "Who wouldn't vote for Kanye?!"

Rihanna – who didn’t attend the VMAs – watched Kanye’s speech on television, and it's clear that he's a powerful orator.

"I got to see it," Rihanna said, "and I'm really, really elated with his speech. His speech was incredible."
