Rapper Kanye West has confirmed that he plans to run for president of the United States in 2020.

During a recent interview with Forbes, West declared that he's "been talking about this for years" and had originally planned on running in 2024. But now he's moved up the date.

The 43-year-old made the Independence Day announcement on Twitter, writing, "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision, and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION."

Kanye contends that this is not a publicity stunt or a prank—he is serious about running for president.

"I'm speaking with experts, I'm going to speak with Jared Kushner, the White House, with Biden," West said.

According to Forbes, West is comfortable taking Black votes from a Democratic nominee, which would help Trump. He adds that it's racist to assume that anyone would vote for a Democrat because they're black.

"To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy," West said.
