NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — He’s rich, popular, polarizing and certainly not afraid to speak his mind. And he wants to be president. It isn’t Donald Trump — it’s Kanye West.
The rapper was on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night to accept the Video Vanguard Award when he ended his rambling speech with the declaration that he wants to run for president in 2020.
“As you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West said.

Apparently missing the part about 2020, Miley Cyrus said that she was switching her vote from Trump to Kanye.
But many New Yorkers were mixed about the idea of West running for president.
