Kanye West announced a 2020 presidential bid on Independence Day.
West infamously referred to his red “Make America Great Again” hat as his “Superman cape” and dropped an F-bomb in the Oval Office while voicing his support for the president.

West’s White House antics were mocked by NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” in the show’s cold open.
But West is now apparently running against Trump.
“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,” West posted on Twitter.
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

Is this Trump’s best shot at stealing the 2020 election?
Trump’s Axios interview put his ‘willful ignorance’ on full display for the country: Ex-RNC official
In a column for the conservative Bulwark, the former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee said the interview Donald Trump participated in with Jonathan Swan of Axios should be put to rest any doubts anyone might have had that the president is out of his depth.
Reacting to the interview done in conjunction with HBO, Tim Miller -- who is now an advisor to the Never Trumper Lincoln Project -- claimed the president's comments about the CoVID-19 pandemic and resulting U.S. death toll that has raced passed 150,000 is a sign "Trump is fundamentally incapable of recognizing the true nature of what he calls the 'invisible enemy.'"
