Kanye West announces he's running for President via Twitter

Kanye running for president?

Kanye West announced he will be running for President of the United States via Twitter on Saturday evening.

The rapper took to Twitter on America's Independence Day to state, "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future." 

West has been a vocal supporter of current U.S. President Donald Trump but now is going head-to-head with the former businessman and his presumptive Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Elon Musk, the chief executive of Tesla, endorsed West’s Twitter post by replying, “You have my full support!”

The Presidential election is set for Nov. 3 and there is no word on if West has officially filed his paperwork to appear on state election ballots. 

The deadline to add independent candidates hasn't passed in many states.

The tweet has over a million likes and just under 500,000 retweets.
