“Come on now. Is that even a question? Kanye would annihilate Trump,” a source close to the rapper told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, when asked if Kanye thought he would love to face The Donald in an actual presidential race. “With all due respect to the man, Kanye thinks he’s more in touch with America at large and the common men and women. Kanye has 14 million plus people who follow him on Twitter — that’s three times more people than Trump has following him. Kanye also had that many followers before he even announced his bid at the VMAs! Not only that, his music also reaches people — globally. Trump wouldn’t stand a chance against Kanye. Kanye’s an international icon and everybody loves him!”
Clearly, Kanye hasn’t lost any of his trademark confidence since announcing his future bid for the presidency to the public on Aug. 30. Despite having absolutely no political experience, Kanye is reportedly dead serious about running in the 2020 election, and believes that he’s made an impact on the fashion and music industries, and could do the same for the White House. “Becoming the president of the U.S. would be the biggest accomplishment of his life,” an insider previously told HollywoodLife.com. “For that experience alone, to say that he’s president and to actually be, he wants that challenge. But in the end, only time will tell.” As serious as Kanye is at this moment, we’ll all have to wait and see what happens when 2020 rolls around.
One person who is looking forward to that day is none other than current presidential hopefully Donald Trump. The Republican candidate had only nice things to say about the “All Day” rapper in an interview with RollingStone on Sept. 2, admitting he thought Kanye’s decision to run for office was “interesting.”“Becoming the president of the U.S. would be the biggest accomplishment of his life,” the insider continued. “For that experience alone, to say that he’s president and to actually be, he wants that challenge. But in the end, only time will tell.”
