Kanye West announced on Twitter Saturday that he is running for president .
“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,” the Chicago rapper tweeted with “#2020VISION.”
The post by West — whose second album was titled “Late Registration,” garnered more than 200,000 likes within an hour.
But a 2020 run would be a virtually impossible mission for the “Jesus is King” artist and it’s not clear if he’s serious.
An incredibly late Fourth of July announcement means West has missed every single state filing deadline for the two major parties and nearly all state primaries.
He’s blown past at least six state filing deadlines to register as an independent candidate, including several with some of the most electoral college votes, like New York and Texas.
