If you ever doubted Kanye West and his big dream of one day occupying the White House, then doubt no more.
Kanye announced his 2020 presidential run last month at the 2015 MTV VMAs and now he has confirmed the news and even talking all about his plans.
"Oh definitely," the 38-year-old rapper confirmed to Vanity Fair magazine when asked if he was serious.
The interviewer then noted that the reaction to his announcement was not very negative. To that, Kanye said:
"Especially from the six years of this misconception or the six years I went through of ‘We don’t like Kanye.’ And then as soon as I said that, it was like, ‘Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he’s extremely thoughtful. Every time he’s ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He’s probably the most honest celebrity that we have.’ I didn’t approach that because I thought it would be fun. It wasn’t like, Oh, let’s go rent some jet skis in Hawaii. No, the exact opposite."
Kanye continued with: "I sit in clubs and I’m like, Wow, I’ve got five years before I go and run for office and I’ve got a lot of research to do, I’ve got a lot of growing up to do. My dad has two masters degrees. My mom has a PhD, she used to work at Operation PUSH. Somehow the more and more creative I get, the closer and closer I get to who I was as a child. When I was a child, I was holding my mom’s hand at Operation PUSH. I think it’s time."
