You have my full support!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 5, 2020
It is not clear whether Mr West is making a serious bid for the presidency. If he is, West will need to fill out a lot of paperwork to be eligible to the presidential ballot.
In good news for Mr West, he still has time to register as an independent presidential candidate in most states.
Mr West has previously been a vocal supported of President Trump. The pair held a high profile meeting at the White House in 2018 to discussion prison reform and the crisis on the Korean peninsula. President Trump has spoken warmly about Mr West in the past.
It is not the first time that 43-years old has announced he is running for president. The American rapper – who is said to have a net worth valued at the US $1.3bn – told a crowd at a New York business festival last year that he would run for president in 2024.
We can see Mr west’s decision to run for President will change the 2020 Presidential Game.
