Rapper Kanye West shocked everyone when he announced that he will be running for president in the November general elections three weeks ago. Now, he has reportedly withdrawn from the 2020 US presidential race.
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

According to a report in Intelligencer, Kanye West hired campaign staff who were looking into getting his name listed as a third-party candidate in Florida and several other states. But now, the team has now reportedly been told the bid is off.
Steve Kramer, an election strategist who was hired by Kayne West to focus on getting his name on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina, told the publication on Thursday, ‘He’s out’. Karmer said that West’s bid was serious and there were 180 people working in Florida when the decision was made to call the effort off.
Opening up about this decision made by Kanye West, Kramer told Intelligencer, “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled. We had over 180 people out there today.” He added, “I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye,” continuing, “Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions. Running for president has to be one of the hardest things for someone to actually contemplate at that level.”
Kayne West is still to make an official statement on whether he is still running or not for the presidency.
A week ago, a source close to the rapper told TMZ that Kanye usually suffers episodes of bipolar disorder once a year. This has affected his decision-making skills and his statements in the last week (July 4 weekend). Sources say that Kim Kardashian and their family are worried about him, but they hope things will become better as they always do
