Kanye West announced during his 2015 VMA’s speech that he was keen to run for president in 2020! Well, we seem to believe his wife, Kim Kardashian West, is also preparing for her role as The First Lady of the United States of America in the future!
Kanye gave an interview with Annie Mac’s Radio One show. He revealed that he wanted to be president in the future because he is driven by the idea of humanity and truth. He said, “When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views. I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth.”
He further added, “We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”
Seems like his wife is also supportive of his idea of being President in the future. Kim Kardashian has recently taken keen interest in several social and charitable issues. It is quite possible that she is molding her image to be the First Lady of the country in 2020.
One of the issues Kimmy K has recently spoken about is homelessness. In an episode of her reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim stated how she wanted to help reduce homelessness in the country.
She said, “I am just at a point in my life where I don’t want to be naive anymore and I want to use my platform to get other people involved. I just hope that I can shine a light on this issue, and hopefully, more people will come together and we can figure out a solution for this.”
She further added, “I don’t know what the answer is to get people off the streets, but I’m so willing to help in any way that I can. I just want to bring awareness to this issue. It makes me feel really sad that people are just living like this, and the problem is getting worse.
In another episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim also raised her voice for reproductive health care. She educated herself and her viewers about this clinic in Los Angeles known as “Planned Parenthood”.
This came at a crucial time, where the clinic was going to lose it’s funding if the new healthcare bill was passed by the Senate.
People had a misconception that Planned Parenthood was an abortion clinic. However, the clinic does a lot more than that; it focuses on preventive care for people.
Kim wanted to know more about it, so the Kardashian sisters went and met with the president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood, Sue Dunlap. They were informed that the clinic deals in life-saving cancer screenings, provides birth control methods for women and also provides STD treatments.
Kim Kardashian West has also been a strong advocate against gun violence and promotes gun control in the country.
Kim took to her website in 2016 to pen down an extract calling for stricter gun control laws in the country. She wrote, “Right now, there are more guns owned by civilians in this country than in any other country in the world.”
In another instance reported by InStyle, Kim Kardashian spoke to her sister, Kendall Jenner, and said, “I’ve been meeting with Everytown, an organization that is fighting to change all the gun control laws. There are so many loopholes in the system, and I just feel really passionately about how our gun control laws have to change.”
Kimmy K recently also advocated for the release of a sex slave named, Cyntoia Brown. Cyntoia was jailed by the courts of America because she killed the man who trafficked her for prostitution. The 38-year-old business mogul requested the assistance of her own lawyer to help out with her case.
The reality TV star also tweeted about how disappointed she was that the courts jailed a girl for standing up to her perpetrator.
She wrote, “The system has failed. It’s heartbreaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what’s right. I’ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown”
Kim Kardashian West might just make a great First Lady after all!
