Kanye West announced he is running in the next presidential election, against Donald Trump, who he admitted he idolizes. However, he said before that he was going to eventually run, by at least 2024 but changed his mind and decided to announce it his presidential run for 2020 on Twitter on July 4, our Independence Day.

Many people were shocked to hear of his announcement. For one thing, he made the announcement so late in the year, with the election right around the corner in November. Also, he suffers from mental illness. He is Bipolar and has manic attacks a lot in public because he refuses to take his medication to be able to "stay true to himself."

So, obviously, there are many who don't take him too seriously and really don't want him as our next president. But no one can stop him from running in the election, even if he makes a fool of himself.

According to Fox News, West was able to get on the Missouri voting ballot just in time, after submitting the required paper-work and the 10,000 signatures that were needed in the state, minutes before the deadline hit. He almost didn't make it, but he did. He is also on the ballot in Oklahoma and Illinois.

He held his first presidential campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, on July 19. Things didn't go so well for West though because he ended up suffering from a manic attack and crying uncontrollably in front of all of his supporters. Some of his fans had to try to calm him down.

During the manic episode, caused by him suffering from Bipolar Disorder and not taking his medication like he should, he admitted in front of all of his fans that when his wife, famous reality TV star and businesswoman, Kim Kardashian, found out she was pregnant for their oldest daughter, seven-year-old North West, they talked about having an abortion. He cried even more when he admitted this to everyone.

While West was on the subject of abortion, which he is clearly against, he also admitted that he was almost not born due to the fact that his dad wanted his mom to get an abortion when she found out she was pregnant for him. His father's reasons for the idea at the time was that he was "too busy" to raise a child at the time. West screamed and cried and said, "There was almost no Kanye." He screamed this after he screamed and cried out saying, "I almost killed my daughter!"

After the rally was over, [West](/137861/kanye-west-paid out-a-bunch-of-money-to-get-his-name-on-the-ball) ran out of the venue screaming and crying. His supporters were shocked, but more importantly, they were worried for his mental state, knowing he suffers from a mental illness.

When Kim found out, she wasn't happy with West. She wasn't happy because she knows North will watch the rally video when she gets older and will see that part and will find out that they thought about aborting her. She knows this will upset her and is worried what it will do to her mentally. She likes to protect her children as much as she can.

Once Kanye got back to the ranch he and wife Kim owns together, he took to Twitter to keep ranting while still manic. He tweeted a bunch of rude tweets about Kim and her mom, Kris Jenner. He tweeted that Kim and her mom were trying to lock him up, and he ended up accusing Jenner of being a white supremacist. He also tweeted to his followers that he tried to divorce Kim in 2018 because he thought she was cheating with Meek Mill. Kim attended a criminal justice summit back then since she's studying to become a lawyer. Meek was also there, and they had lunch together with another friend, a female friend eating with them. So, that proved Kim was not there to cheat on Kanye with Meek Mill but truly was there for the education it was providing her while studying to become a lawyer.

After Kanye came out of the manic episode, he tweeted an apology to Kim. An hour later, he was in a Wyoming emergency room for anxiety attacks. However, he left the E.R because of all the people there and had the ambulance come check him at home. They checked him over and left when they realized he wasn't in any danger, health wise.

Is Kanye really fit to be our next president of the USA?
