US rapper Kanye West, US President Donald Trump's outspoken supporter, declared on Saturday that he will run for president in 2020 in an open challenge to Trump and his expected Democratic opponent, former vice president Joe Biden.
"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," West wrote in a Twitter post.
This was not clear exactly whether West was serious about battling four months before the November 3 election for the presidency or whether he had submitted any official paperwork to be on the ballots for state elections.
Elon Musk, the Tesla electric car maker's chief executive and another celebrity known for unconventional temper tantrums, supported West's Twitter post: "You have my full support!" he wrote.
