Yes, Kanye West has said it before and he said he was 'serious' then too in 2015 when he made an appearance at the MTV Music Awards then. That was when he had plans to run for the President of the United States in 2020. However, now he says he is even more serious about running for president in 2024.
In fact, during his appearance at the Fast Company Innovation Festival this year, he made a pretty serious statement regarding his plans to run in 2024.
He said, completely out of nowhere, with the most serious look on his face, "When I run for president in 2024..."
After this statement from West, and before he could finish his statement, the audience interrupted him with their laughter. Which, in turn, didn't make Kanye very happy and he said, " What ya'll laughing at?" With the most serious look on his face that anyone who saw it would realize he was not joking.
He continued with his most serious statement saying,
"When I run for president in 2024, we could create so many jobs that I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk."
This serious statement and serious look on his face, a person who has picked earwax out of his own ear and then ate it, is planning on running for president within the next four years. Do you think we are in for a boatload of trouble yet again? Yeah, I think so too!
