West has hinted at a possible presidential run in the past but it seems shortly after meeting with tech mogul, Elon Musk, that he’s certain he has what it takes to take the reigns of the White House. Musk was quick to reply to the viral tweet last night, telling West that he has his ‘full support’ in the race. Speculations have now arisen, hinting that Musk may be Kanye’s vice president.

The tweet with over 450,000 retweets has been met with a largely positive response, with many excited over the prospect of a third runner.

A top tweet that had fans in a frenzy last night, questioned whether Kim Kardashian would suit a first lady role. YES “SHE WILL BE THE FIRST LADY! WHAT A JOKE LMAO,” it read.

Now, both the political sphere of America and all those that are idolized by Kanye’s presence within the music industry, are eager to learn more about West’s chances.

A poll was tweeted in response to Ye’s post, with 50.2% of the entire vote supporting the rapper, with Biden in a close second.
