After Kanye West announced he would be running for president in 2020 election, his wife's got his back all the way. According to an insider for Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian is reportedly thrilled with the decision.
“Kanye has been planning this for years and Kim has known about his aspirations and has been supportive,” the source says. “Kanye is passionate about arts and education and wants to support in any way he can.”
Kim's hubby first announced his decision on July 4, taking to Twitter to shock his fans. “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,” 'Ye tweeted.
West's bid would stack him against Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Though he's a little late to the game, Kim publicly expressed her support on Twitter. She retweeted his announcement message, adding an American flag emoji to her own post.
If West is going to have a shot as presidency, he's going to have to act soon. A second insider told Us Weekly that he “has not registered as a candidate” to get on state election ballots, meaning he's already missed the deadline for several states including Indiana, New York, and Texas.
Fans definitely have mixed opinions over 'Ye's presidential run. After all, he's shared some pretty controversial political opinions in the past. But through it all, Kim K.'s in his corner, unsurprisingly.
