JUST IN: Kanye West Withdraws From 2020 US Presidential Race


Kanye West has reportedly withdrawn from the US presidential race, less than two weeks after announcing his intention to run for president on social media.


A member of West’s campaign team, Steve Kramer, has reportedly told New York Magazine’s Intelligencer off-shot that the rapper will no longer contest the election. “he’s out”, he said.


Kramer told Intelligencer that West’s campaign and bid had been serious and there were about 180 staff working for the rapper in Florida before the bid was called off.


However, according to a presidential poll on Tuesday, West had support from just two per cent of American voters.


Kramer didn’t specify West’s reasons for allegedly withdrawing, however he told the reporter that he’d “let [Intelligencer] know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled.”

“I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye.”

“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.”


He added that they had ‘overwhelming support to get him on the ballot’ and that ‘whether anybody is going to vote for him or not is up to them’.


This comes after it was revealed that West had already missed the voter registration deadline in six separate states.
