It was not immediately clear if West, who is married to internet maven Kim Kardashian, is ready to actually mount a serious campaign against U.S. President Donald Trump and the presumptive Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, in the November election.
West has previously been an outspoken supporter of Trump, even meeting with him in the Oval Office at the White House.
West has mentioned on several occasions that he would like to run for the country’s highest office.
West’s friend and car mogul Elon Musk has endorsed West: “You have my full support!,” Musk posted on Twitter.
You have my full support!
