Kanye West Plans to Run for President and Operate the White House like Wakanda

Influential rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, composer, and entrepreneur Kanye West has expressed interest in running for President of the United States of America.

Speaking in an interview with Forbes, West has decided to give the world a preview of the platform that he'd run on when he would become the President. According to the rapper, he would model his Presidential operations to that of Wakanda, the fictional Marvel kingdom where Black Panther rules as king.

It doesn't come as a surprise to see West use pop-culture rhetoric, though we highly doubt that the country would have the means to emulate the fictional success and technological advancement of Marvel's Wakanda.

That wasn't the only thing that West shared with Forbes though. Describing the discussion with West as "Four rambling hours of interviews," the publication learned that West was planning on deciding within the next thirty days whether or not he would really stake his name and run for president in November's election.

If Kanye does decide to fully commit to running for President, he would do so under the banner of The Birthday Party "because when we win, it's everybody's birthday."

Despite the rapper's seemingly ridiculous ideas, Kanye says he's put some thought into his plan. According to the artist, he's series about running, "like anything I've ever done in my life, I'm doing to win."

"When I'm president, let's also have some fun. Let's get past all the racism conversation, let's empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let's give some land, that's the plan," Kanye told the publication.

Kanye's priorities as president would also be to end police brutality, end the death penalty, clean up the chemicals, and protect America.
