Just when you thought you’d heard it all about Kanye West’s presidential campaign, Caitlyn Jenner has revealed she wants to be vice president.
Earlier this month, Kanye West followed through on his earlier promise of running for president in 2020, by registering a political party. He followed up with a tweet which read, “We must now realise the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States #2020VISION.”
Previously, in a speech at the 2015 Video Music Awards, he’d said: “It’s about ideas, people who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
And while Kim Kardashian and Elon Musk have already shown their full support, Caitlyn Jenner now wants to get in on the action with her son-in-law. “I texted him and said “can I be your [Vice President],” the 70-year-old told TMZ on Thursday.
Pressed if she was serious about her own plans for power, Cait added: “We’ll see! What a combination!”
Wow. Could you even imagine the pairing? We’d love to be a fly on the wall in that campaign room.
Caitlyn’s admission comes as Kanye denied that his announcement to run is merely a PR stunt ahead of new musical material, saying, “I give my album away for free.” When questioned by Forbes about his chances of winning, Kanye said the result of the election is in God’s hands and suggested that if he doesn’t snatch victory this time around, he’d try again in 2024.
“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024, because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”
