Fireworks went off in the US political world this July 4, as the multi-talented Kanye West abruptly declared his intention to run for the 2020 Presidential Election through a post on Twitter. 

"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" read the announcement to his more than 29.5 million followers. 

In an exclusive interview with Forbes, West touched on a huge swath of subjects ranging from a new political party, being sick with COVID-19 in February, his suspicions about a potential vaccine, no longer supporting Trump and being OK with taking votes away from presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. 

For those doubters assuming it is nothing more than a public relations stunt, West is aware that he has about 30 days to make a final decision on his campaign, as filing deadlines draw near for most states.

Although West suspects that some exceptions could be made, given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19. 

Currently, West's new political party, the "Birthday Party" – named as such because, "Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday," according to West – has received endorsements from the rapper's wife, Kim Kardashian West and tech mogul Elon Musk.
