American rapper, Kanye West has revealed that he will be addressing the public for the first time pertaining to his presidential address.
Kanye West will be holding his first presidential campaign event in South Carolina on Sunday, July 19, at 5 p.m.
The event will be held at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston and is “for registered guests only.”
According to a statement sighted by ABC News, all attendees will be asked to sign a COVID-19 liability release form, social distance, and wear a mask. West will also be holding a pre-rally press event.
Earlier in the day, the Billionaire rapper, 43, tweeted to urge his fans to sign up as he is looking to acquire signatures to get on the ballot in South Carolina.
“Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations,” he wrote, sharing a list of locations. “You can also sign up at the website kanye2020.country.”
This comes after TMZ reported that West had filed the first form; the one required by the Federal Election Commission to run for president on Wednesday, July 15. He filled out “Form 1, Statement of Organization”; declaring that he will run with his party BDY, which stands for the Birthday Party.
The publication also noted that Kanye West is yet to file the more important Form 2, which are: Statement of Candidacy, which shows he’s raised or spent more than $5,000 in campaign activity; and also triggers candidacy status under federal campaign finance law.
However, there are still concerns about his 2020 presidential bid; as the rapper has already missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in several states.
