Kanye West Says 'I Am Running for President' as Elon Musk Says 'You Have My Full Support!'

In March, the Yeezy clothing designer spoke with WSJ. Magazine about his support for Trump, even telling the outlet how he does not follow politics and is not even registered to vote.

"I'm a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine? It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something," he told the outlet. "'This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.' "

West and Trump famously got together at the White House in October 2018 to talk tax cuts, prison reform, mental health and racism. Months before, in a series of tweets in April 2018, West called the former Celebrity Apprentice host "my brother," writing, "You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

West reiterated his loyalty in another tweetstorm in January 2019. "One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m Black," he said. "We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a taxpayer. I am myself. God is with us."

Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who is a former Vice President, are candidates in the November 2020 presidential election.
