Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard that Kanye West plans on running for president in 2020. The rapper made the announcement in a puzzling-yet-amazing 13-minute speech at the MTV VMAs. Ye captured the attention of the nation -- presidential hopeful Donald Trump included.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, The Donald admitted he was watching the awards when West gave his instantly iconic speech. "I said, 'That's very interesting. I wonder who gave him that idea,'" the real estate mogul told the magazine.
Following the awards show, the comparisons between the rapper and the creator of "The Apprentice" started rolling in, which Trump said he didn't "quite get."
But that doesn't mean he wouldn't run against West if given the chance. In fact, he'd welcome the opportunity.
"He's said very nice things about me in the past ... extremely positive things," Trump said. "He's actually a different kind of person than people think. He's a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday."
So there you have it. Trump vs. West could very well become a reality. Who would you vote for?
