Kanye West is keeping our dreams of a West-Kardashian West Wing alive.

The "All Day" rapper dropped a teasing reference to his supposed 2020 presidential bid during his iHeartRadio set in Las Vegas on Friday.

The shout out came during West's rendition of his Paul McCartney collaboration, "Only One." "You'll be the man you always knew you could be -- 2020," he sang.

To no one's surprise, the lyric change garnered immediate cheers from the audience.

That 2020 reference is a throwback to West's acceptance speech after receiving the Video Vanguard award during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month. At the end of his epic, rambling monologue, he announced his intention to bid for the presidency in that year.

The 38-year-old rapper wasn't the only one to make a nod to 2020 at the festival. When Jared Leto initially introduced the dad-to-be on the iHeartRadio stage, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman called West a "visionary, artist, madman, musician, producer, provocateur, director, husband, father, and just maybe the future president of the United States of America."

While current Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton previously said she hopes the entertainer will not run against her if she's up for re-election in five years, Republican hopeful Donald Trump welcomed the challenge.

"He's actually a different kind of person than people think, he's a nice guy," Trump said. "I hope to run against him someday."

The presidential tease caps off a busy week for the Kardashian-West family. The fashion mogul made a surprise debut of his Yeezy Season 2 line at the New York Fashion Week, but his 3-year-old daughter, North West, was truly the one who stole the show with pure cuteness.
