Kanye West … Your move. You said you were running for Prez in 2020, so … We got Yeezy at LAX Friday and our photog repeatedly asked if he was going to make good on the promise he made in August, 2015 at the VMA’s. (TMZ)
Earlier this week. G.O.O.D. Music’s Tyga and hip-hop fans promoted the idea of Ye running for president in 2020.

Last year, rap veteran N.O.R.E. spoke on the possibility of Yeezy running for president in 2020.
“I’m going to be Kanye’s biggest supporter when he runs for president. I think he should. I can’t vote, I’m a felon, but I’m going to make everybody I know vote for him.” (TMZ)
Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian previousy talked about his run for the presidency.
“I believe he is serious and I know if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best… it’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement,” Kim said. “I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there.” (“Ellen”)
