Does Kim Kardashian West Support Kanye West’s Political Views?
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are not just celebrities who get attention for their drama-filled personal lives. These days, Kardashian West and West are making news for their political ambitions as well.
West recently made a big announcement to further his political career, but since his political views are rather unpopular in Hollywood, many fans are wondering where his wife will stand. Does Kardashian West now support her husband’s political views? Here’s what we know.
Kanye West announced he is running for president
On July 4, 2020, West announced on Twitter that he will be running for president in the upcoming presidential election.
“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,” he wrote.
This might not come as a surprise to fans who have long been aware of West’s ambitions. In 2015, he shared he would run for president in 2020. However, that did not pan out, though he later said in 2019 that he would run in the 2024 race.
West is known to be a supporter of Donald Trump
West’s intentions to run against the incumbent Donald Trump can seem confusing to some seeing as he has been supporting Trump for the past few years. West has been known to sport Trump’s famous red “MAGA” hat, and he even said that, while he did not vote in 2016, he wanted to vote for Trump.
“[Voting for Trump] don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter; that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights; that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage, that don’t mean I don’t believe in these things because that was the guy I would’ve voted for,” West said at a concert in San Jose, California in 2018.
Since West is running against Trump, it’s clear he might have to find ways to differentiate himself against the current president.
Does Kim Kardashian West support her husband’s political views
Kardashian has been less vocal about her political views, though many fans believe she supports liberal policies. As such, there might be some questions about whether she would now have to publicly stand by his more conservative views.
Kardashian West did show her support for West’s presidential run by retweeting his announcement.
Whether Kardashian West fully supports West’s political views or not, a source told Hollywood Life she will “stand by her husband” anyway.
“Kim will always stand by her husband whether she disagrees or agrees with him,” the insider said. “They have healthy discussions and disagreements constantly over things. It’s one of the many things Kanye loves about Kim. She may not always agree with his thoughts and ideas, but she will never not stand by her man. So, regardless of what actually happens with this, she supported his tweet and that’s why she retweeted it. She will never stray.”
