Kanye West Hints at 2024 Presidential Run after getting 60,000 Votes in 2020 Election
Despite the fact that most people brushed off rapper Kanye West’s 2020 US presidential election campaign months ago, it turns out he actually received enough votes on Election Day to keep him hopeful about the 2024 election. One of them, of course, was his own vote, which he documented on Twitter before suggesting that he might run for president again during the next election cycle.
The 43-year-old rapper and businessman announced that he was running for president on the 4th of July via a tweet, during what now appears to have been the beginning of a weeks-long bipolar episode that culminated with a visit to a Wyoming hospital and an emotional heart-to-heart with his wife, Kim Kardashian. However, it now seems his hopes of becoming president of the US one day in the future weren’t just the result of his mental illness.
Kanye’s late-night post was quite simply captioned “KANYE 2024” in all caps, suggesting that he intends to run for president again in the future. Apparently the over 60 thousand votes he received on election night were good enough to keep him hopeful that he may actually have a chance for a successful campaign in 2024.
Kanye’s name was printed on ballots in 12 of 50 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont. However, it was not on the ballot in Wyoming, where he cast his vote.
Kanye, of course, voted for himself, but since he wasn’t named on the Wyoming ballot, he voted by write-in and documented his entire experience on Twitter. He seemed truly excited and thankful to be voting not only for the first time but for himself.
It’s clear that while Kanye has conceded the 2020 presidential election, he isn’t quite ready to give up on his goal just yet. Who knows what dream he’ll be chasing a couple of years from now when it’s time to start campaigning for 2024, but as of now, we should be prepared to see him on at least some of the ballots during the next election cycle.
