Chelsea Clinton Is Asked About Kanye West Running for President and Her Perspective May Surprise You.

The rapper launched his alleged bid to be President during his acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards last month (August 30). The former First Daughter called West’s mid-VMAs declaration “awesome,” explaining that the moment could inspire young people to get involved in politics. “I definitely think who runs for office is really important,” Chelsea Clinton told MTV News. “Even if him just saying that helps spark a little boy or a little girl who was watching the VMAs to think, ‘Oh, wow! Maybe I should do that,’ that’s awesome.” When asked if she would support a West candidacy in 2020, Clinton gave a perfectly diplomatic response – not that we’d expect anything less from the daughter of POTUS number 41 and the current Democratic presidential frontrunner. “I think it depends on who he’d be running against,” Clinton said as a nod to the fact that if her mother Hillary Clinton wins the presidential election in 2016, she could be running against West for a second term. Taylor Swift has (jokingly) offered to serve as his running mate and the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan has made it clear they’re ready to take on the White House.

Whether or not West actually intends to run for president is unclear, but as we’ve seen in the past, he’s certainly not one to shy away from getting political. MTV’s Look Different campaign is teaming up with the Clinton Foundation for its No Ceilings project to shine a light on the empowerment of girls and women.

MTV News sat down with Chelsea Clinton to talk about the partnership — but not without also asking about Kanye West’s 2020 presidential announcement. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told Billboard that he looks “forward to seeing what slogan [Kanye] chooses to embroider on his campaign hat”.
