Kanye West has revealed that he wants his estranged friend and rapper, Jay-Z, as his running mate for the US 2020 presidential election.
West, 43, said this before he held his first-ever presidential rally in South Carolina on Sunday, where he spoke about abortion and called out anti-slavery activist, Harriet Tubman.

Speaking to a local blogger, Kris Kaylin, about his campaign policies, the billionaire explained how he realized Jay-Z, his former business associate, should be his vice president candidate, despite already picking Wyoming preacher, Michelle Tidball, as his running mate.
However, West disclosed that Tidball has said she will be ready to take another position in his cabinet if he finds a different running mate.
When asked if he has spoken to Jay-Z about his plan, he said he has not spoken to his “brother” in a long while.
Kanye West couldn’t stop in my city and not chop it up with me. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all. He even considered Jay-Z as a running mate. Full interview dropping TONIGHT AT 9:00 PM! Are you #Kanye2020? pic.twitter.com/UHPf3IeEX6
