He made the announcement via his Twitter account.
“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!” he wrote.
Kanye added that there will be speculation why he is entering this late into the field saying that
“y’all might be thinking right now, i wonder did he smoke something before he came out here? and the answer is: yes, I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off”
