Elon Musk Endorses Kanye West’s Presidential Bid

Billionaire owner of Tesla, Elon Musk, has tweeted his endorsement of rapper and music producer, Kanye West’s presidential bid.

It is not clear if both of them are pranking the rest of us but Kanye made this announcement via Twitter on Saturday: “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

To which his friend, Elon Musk responded: “You have my full support!”

Barely twelve hours after Kanye’s tweet, it has received over 375 thousand retweets and over 750 thousand ‘Likes’. Hopefully those ‘Likes’ will transform into votes.

It is not clear if Kanye West is taking part in the presidential election this year as he has missed every single state filing deadline for the two major parties and nearly all state primaries.

He’s also missed at least six state filing deadlines to register as an independent candidate, including several with some of the most electoral college votes, like New York and Texas.
