US President Donald Trump stated Tuesday that rapper Kanye West’s declaration that he’s operating for president was “very attention-grabbing.”
Responding to West’s declare that he would run in opposition to Trump — for whom the musician has expressed assist up to now, Trump informed reporters on the White Home, “He could.”
The declaration by West, 43, on Twitter that he was gunning for the best workplace within the land was retweeted half 1,000,000 instances and “preferred” 1,000,000.
“If he did it, he must view this as a trial run for what is going on to occur in 4 years,” stated Trump, noting that it could be too late for West to register in some states, and that he lacks the infrastructure for a presidential bid.
West, who visited Trump within the Oval Workplace in 2018 and donned a trademark “Make America Nice Once more” pink baseball cap, introduced his proposed run on Saturday, because the nation celebrated Independence Day.
“We should now understand the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our imaginative and prescient and constructing our future,” the music and trend mogul stated.
“I’m operating for president of america,” he stated, with an icon of a US flag and the hashtag “2020Imaginative and prescient.”
He has not offered any particulars about his alleged marketing campaign.
