Popular American rapper Kanye West is well known for his impulsive and controversial statements. The rapper recently announced joining the United States Presidential Race 2020 opposite Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. However, several reports now claim that the rapper has withdrawn from contesting the elections.
Kanye who would have joined in as a third party candidate announced his Presidential bid a day after America’s Independence Day. According to a recent poll prediction, Kanye would have received only 2 percent of the votes if he continued his Presidential run. In order to be eligible as a third-party candidate, Kanye needed to get roughly 132,781 signatures by July 15. This in all likelihood can be the reason for his pullout.
In his tweet on July 4th, Kanye, a singer and songwriter announced running for the 2020 US Presidential race. He tweeted: “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! #2020VISION.“
