There are reports of American singer, Kanye West, dropping out of the presidential race in 2020.
The rapper is reported to have informed his campaign team about his decision to pull out of the race.
New York Magazine, The Intelligencer exclusively reports that Kanye West’s quest to become the next President of the United States has been called off.
According to the report, Steve Kramer, an election strategist hired by West to focus on getting his name on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina, told the publication that ‘he’s out’ of the 2020 race.
When asked further about the details of Kanye’s presidential end, Kramer said “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled.”
West’s campaign organisation already had a staff strength of about 180 people working in Florida before they decided to call off the effort.

This new development comes weeks after the rapper has announced his intention to run via Twitter for the Oval Office.
There were speculations about the timing of the declaration, as the two major parties and virtually all state caucuses had missed every single state filing deadline already.
