Kanye West Tweeted his intention to run for president July 4.

"We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," wrote West. "I am running for president of the United States!”


Technology entrepreneur Elon Musk Tweeted West he had his "full support."

It is not the first time West, a rapper and husband to billionaire Kim Kardashian, has claimed that he is running for the White House.

At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he said he had decided to run for president in 2020.

The Tweet has been liked a million times and prompted many to point out that it was too late to contest the nomination of one of the major parties with the election being only four months away.
