Ye 2020?

At the 2015 Video Music Awards, Kanye West was awarded the Video Vanguard Award for his numerous and unique music videos. Kanye was greeted by a round of applause lasting almost two minutes. When he was finally able to speak, he reflects on his first, and very iconic, experience meeting Taylor Swift, who presented him with this award. He asks himself if he had to do it over again, would he? He goes on to explain his misunderstanding of award shows and his passion for art, whether it’s polite or not. At the end of his speech, he passionately speaks about our future, the way this generation will raise their future children. He ended the speech by announcing that he’ll be running for president in 2020 and dropping the mic.

There’s no way to be sure if Kanye will actually run in 2020, but if he sticks to it, he could develop a large following willing to vote for him. Kanye West seems to have a lot of good ideas if he were to be put in office, but he faces a large set of challenges because he doesn’t have an extensive political background like most presidential candidates do. Only time will show whether or not Kanye West has what it takes be America’s 46th president.
