Kanye West Pushes Back Presidential Bid 4 Years After Trump Meeting

Kanye West’s 2020 campaign is apparently off

Kanye West, fresh from his meeting on Tuesday with Donald Trump, amended his presidential aspirations, suggesting that he will now be running in 2024.

Back in August of last year, West dropped a doozy during the MTV’s Video Music Awards declaring he was planning to run for president in 2020.

But after a meeting with the president-elect in New York on Tuesday, West is now all about 2024.

After telling his more than 26 million followers that he met with Trump to discuss several issues including, “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculum, and violence in Chicago,” West ended his series of tweets with “#2024.”

It’s not clear whether West now believes Trump will be a two-term president or whether he just needs more time to launch his presidential campaign. (Reps for West did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment).

During a bizarre speech at the 2015 MTV Music Awards, West said he would run for president in 2020.

“As you probably could have guessed by this moment, in 2020 I have decided to run for president,” West told the stunned audience as he accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

The announcement was mocked by some pundits who seemed to think West would have a better chance of getting struck twice by lightning on a sunny Los Angeles day.

“Would I rule out a ‘President Kanye?’ Yeah I would rule it out,” conservative political commentator S.E. Cupp said on CNN. “The news is Kanye West seems to think that either a Republican is winning this season or Hillary is going to be a one-termer.”

Only days after West first came back into the public eye following his hospitalization, pool reporters camped at Trump Tower’s lobby in Midtown Manhattan were greeted with a newly blond-haired Kanye West walking in.

Following the meeting, Trump spoke to reporters as West stood by his side, calling the rapper a “good man” and saying the two have been “friends for a long time.”

West would not discuss the details of the meeting and ignored a question about whether he wishes he had voted for Trump or whether they discussed having the hip-hop star perform during Trump’s inauguration celebrations.

“I just want to take a picture right now,” West said, smiling.

As TheWrap first reported, Trump’s inaugural team has had a tough time booking A-list talent for his inauguration balls.
