Kanye West has conceded in the U.S. presidential race – but insists he’ll run again in 2024.
The 43-year-old rapper, who was running for office as a candidate for the newly formed Birthday Party, kept his fans updated on Election Day (November 3, 2020) on his Twitter page, which he kicked off by writing: “God is so good. Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me.”
He then shared a snap of himself in the voting box and a short clip of himself posting his ballot – on which he’d penned his own name.
However, later in the evening, Kanye conceded that he wouldn’t be winning the election. Posting a picture of himself in front of an image of the map of the United States – with each state colored in red (Republican) or blue (Democrat) – Kanye wrote: “WELP KANYE 2024”.
Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian also took part in the election on Tuesday, sharing a glamorous snap of herself with an “I Voted” sticker afterwards, but fans were quick to deduce that she probably didn’t vote for her husband.
The assumption came after Kim liked a tweet from Kid Cudi, upon which he wrote: “Vote for Biden if you a real one.”
