If you happened to miss the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, chances are, you’ve heard that Kanye West is planning to run for president in 2020. Although many are in support of his candidacy, it seems like the White House had something to say in regards to Mr. West’s decision.
Following Dr. West’s announcement, it seems like the White House is in full favor and support of the Chicago rappers decision. In fact, Press Secretary, Josh Earnest said they’re looking “Forward to seeing what slogan he chooses to embroider on his campaign hat.”
Again, where not 100% sure if Kanye is actually planning on running or if he was just talking, but if he is — at least he know he has support from 1600 Pennsylvania.
Thoughts? Do you think you’ll be heading to the polls?
