That was fast.
According to reports, Kanye West has dropped out of the 2020 presidential race. Just two weeks ago, Kanye announced that he was running for president.
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

Reportedly, Steve Kramer, who was hired by Kanye’s team to assist him in being added to the voting card, said that the rapper was “working over [the] weekend [in Florida], formalizing the FEC.” which was short lived because according to Kramer, Kanye is now out of the race.
“He’s out,” he said. “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today.”
“I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye,” added Kramer. “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.”
Kanye has yet to comment on dropping out of the race as of yet.
