American rapper Kanye West admitted defeat in the US presidential elections and announced his possible participation in the race next time, in 2024.
“Kanye 2024,” tweeted the rapper, who previously flagged some of his posts about his intention to run in this year’s election with the caption “Kanye 2020”.
According to the latest data from Fox News, over 60,000 people voted for West in the United States. Voters cast their votes for the rapper in 12 states: Iowa, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont. In each of these states, he received less than 1% of the popular vote.
On election day, West revealed that he voted for the person he trusts most, that is, himself.
Earlier, he announced that he intends to participate in the race for the presidency as an independent candidate, because the current head of the country, Donald Trump, is already nominated from the Republicans. He also invited rapper Jay-Z to be his running mate. Those close to the performer said that West suffered from bipolar disorder.
General elections were held in the United States on Tuesday. The president and vice president are elected, all 435 members of the House of Representatives, about a third of the Senate (35 senators), governors of 11 states and two territories, and local legislatures in several states.
