Kanye West Again Says He Will Run For President

US rapper Kanye West has said he is running for president, potentially pitting him against a man he says he admires, Donald Trump.
"We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," he tweeted. "I am running for president of the United States!"
His wife Kim Kardashian West and entrepreneur Elon Musk endorsed him.
The BBC however reports that it's unclear whether West is really running.
He does not appear to have registered his name with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for November's election. The closest name the FEC database shows is a candidate called "Kanye Deez Nutz West", who filed their papers with the Green Party in 2015 under the address "1977 Golddigger Avenue, Suite Yeezus" and appears to have raised no money.

It is also not the first time West has claimed that he is running for the White House.
At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he said he had decided to run for president in 2020.
But last November he pushed the date back, saying he would actually run in the 2024 contest.
"What are you laughing at?" he asked the crowd at Fast Company's Innovation Festival.
"We would have created so many jobs that I'm not gonna run, I'm gonna walk," he said, adding he was considering changing his name for the run to "Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West".
In his tweet on Saturday, US Independence Day, West, 43, did not say if his supposed run would be affiliated with a particular political party.
In any case, contesting the nomination of one of the major parties would be impossible at this stage, with the election only four months away.
