John Legend and Kanye West have remained pals despite their political differences. While Kanye has long hinted of his plans to run for president of the United States on social media, John confirmed the rapper's interest on The Dan Wootton Interview podcast: "He said it multiple times. I think he’s serious."

John added, "I’d guess he’d run as an independent, but he’s never told me anything about what party he would run from. But he’s said multiple times that he’s interested in running for president.”

The "All of Me" singer-songwriter also thought the incumbent U.S. president inspired Kanye's political aspirations. "He sees some aspects of himself in Trump and sees that Trump winning makes it feel like he could do it too."

Kanye seemed to confirm John's statements by simply tweeting "2024".
