‘We Need Another Black Man In Office’: Nick Cannon Suggests Kanye West Has His Vote In the Presidential Election

Following a heated three and a half years under the Donald J. Trump administration, actor Nick Cannon says it’s time for another Black president, which is why the 39-year-old seemingly is throwing his support behind rapper Kanye West.

When asked by TMZ paparazzi about West’s presidential bid on Aug. 8, the “Wild ‘N Out” host revealed that he would be voting for the rapper in the upcoming presidential election, saying he would love to see another African-American in the Oval Office. “I love it,” Cannon replied, perhaps facetiously. “We need another Black man in office.”

However, when the outlet pointed out that voting for West would basically be a vote for Trump, Cannon responded, saying, “You never know, man. Stranger things have happened in 2020.”

West’s journey to the White House hasn’t been smooth thus far. As a result of missing several essential application deadlines, the rapper’s name may not appear on many state ballots.

It also seems unlikely that the “Jesus Walks” rapper will even appear on his home state of Illinois’ ballot either. On Friday, Aug. 7, the Chicago Tribune reported that West’s name most likely will not appear on the Illinois general election ballot because he didn’t obtain the 2,500 valid signatures from state voters, which is required for independent candidates wanting to get on the ballot.

West reportedly filed 3,218 signatures, but a state elections official later ruled that around 60 percent of those signatures weren’t authentic. As of now, the rapper has until Aug. 21 to challenge those findings and prove the validity of those signatures.

On July 4, the Grammy Award winner shared a tweet announcing his entry in 2020 presidential race. “We must now realize the promise of America by trust God, unifying our vision, and building our future,” West wrote. “I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”

Yet, it wasn’t the first time West has expressed his presidential aspirations. While accepting his Vanguard Award at the 2015 Video Music Awards. “We are gonna teach our kids that they can be something. We’re gonna teach our kids that they can stand up for themselves. We’re gonna teach our kids to believe in themselves. If my grandfather was here right now, he would not let me back down,” the rapper expressed. He added, “I don’t know what I’m finna lose after this, it doesn’t matter though, because it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas, bro, new ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
