Fox News reports, Kanye West opened up about his experience running for president in the 2020 election cycle.
West was featured on the “Joe Rogan Experience” and he shared his plans for the near future. The 43-year-old rapper said that he’s been inspired by God to be the leader of the new free world.
“It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower,” West shared.
“When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul.”
Oprah Winfrey said he would have to “bone up on your foreign affairs” if he was serious about his presidential campaign.
West has told his naysayers that he will “be a billionaire by that time.”
“Not that that’s a reason why someone should be president. At that time, I was $50 million in debt and I knew I had the confidence that I would be able to turn that around.”
“There couldn’t be a better time to put a visionary in the captain’s chair,” Kanye said.
“If it’s in God’s plan that part of my path is to be the governor then that’s fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world.”
“I’m definitely 100% winning in 2024,” he said. “… I was thinking I would possibly be the Democrat.”

From Fox News:
West said he believes his creativity and goal-setting personality makes him a strong contender compared to President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
West said if he doesn’t win, he’s open to running for governor of California, like Ronald Reagan, then an actor.
The “Donda: With Child” rapper has plans to run again in 2024, and he might possibly do so under a different political party, he told Joe Rogan.
