Kanye West recently released a campaign video for 2020 presidential run. Kanye shared the video on his social media and wrote, “We stepping out on faith.”
In the video, Kanye is seen against a black and white American flag. The video further show families praying and helping each other.
In the video, Kanye says, “What is America’s destiny? What is best for our nation, our people? What is just, true justice? We have to think about all these things, together as a people.”
“To contemplate our future, to live up to our dream, we must have vision. We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our Constitution calls ‘the free exercise of religion’, including, of course, prayer. Through prayer, faith can be restored. We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves. We are not only a beacon to the world, but we should be servants to each other, to encourage each other, to help each other, to lift up each other-our fellow Americans, that we may all prosper together.”
“We have to act on faith, with the sure knowledge that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things.”
“We will build a stronger country, by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people God intends us to be.”
The video ends with Kanye saying, “I’m Kanye West and I approve this message.”
He is on the ballot in 12 US states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont.
“I am campaigning to be the next President of our great country — not Vice President,” Kanye had earlier said in a statement.
