It's been less than 24 hours since Kanye West announced that he's running for president, but he's already received plenty of support from his friends and loved ones.
"We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," the "Wash Us in the Blood" rapper, 43, tweeted on the Fourth of July. "I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION."
I think we should give Kanye West the AOL Free trial treatment if he gets in office. He gets 30 days, if he's doing well after the 30 we subscribe for another trial version, if he's messing up we can subscribe to another service
As ET previously reported, West first announced his intentions to run for president back in 2015, while accepting his Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards. "I don't know what I'm fitting to lose after this it don't matter though because it ain't about me, it's about new ideas, bro, people with ideas, people who believe in truth," he said. "And yes, as you probably could've guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president."
At the time, President Donald Trump even reacted to Kanye's interest in taking office, telling Rolling Stone, "He's actually a different kind of person than people think, he's a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday."
