Even though West had come out in support and showed his admiration for Trump for years. However, he has recently diverged from the President over the Black Lives Matter movement. He also joined the crowd to protest against racial justice and police brutality.

He was one of the protestors

The rapper also donated $2 million as a way to support the families of late George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmad Arbery who were killed in the incidents with the cops and citizens.

Is there any other intention?

The fact is that the Kanye West president Twitter announcement came after the rapper teased an excerpt from his new song “Wash Us in the Blood”. He also announced his plans to release his new album titled “God’s Country.” West hasn’t had any new music since last Christmas and no prize for guessing, this project will mark his comeback.

Depending on the fact that he hasn’t shown any new action for his presidential run, many alleged that it’s a way to promote his new album.

Meanwhile, another theory is also being developed. The Kanye West president declaration was instantly met with so much skepticism on social media. Some commentators also pointed out that it might work out in Donald Trump’s favor.
