She told the website she thinks they'd make a great team on the Birthday Party ticket.

TMZ wrote, "While it sounds like she's joking about being [Kanye’s] veep, [you] can't exactly rule it out, not with the way Kanye's entered the race at the last minute."

He has previously revealed he wanted Michelle Tidball as his running mate, but she has yet to formally accept the invitation.

The rapper took his Twitter account as Fourth of July celebrations were underway in the United States to make the shocking revelation he would be running for President.

“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, alongside an emoji of the American Flag.

If he’s serious about his bid, Kanye, a vocal supporter of US President Donald Trump, will now challenge Trump and his presumptive Democratic rival Joe Biden.

While the announcement may come as a shock to some, Kanye has been very open about his intention to run for president in the past, however, many thought it would be in 2024.

In 2015, Kanye stunned when he announced at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles that he was eyeing up the most powerful role in the country.

"I have decided in 2020 to run for president," he said at the end of his speech.

Last November, at Fast Company's Innovation Festival, Kanye told a crowd: "When I run for President in 2024", before he was interrupted by sniggering in the audience.

"What y'all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye's crazy — one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can't say nothing, they got no opinion, they're so scared!"

Kanye and his equally famous wife Kim Kardashian West have visited Trump in the White House.

At one meeting in October 2018, West delivered a rambling, profanity-laden speech in which he discussed alternative universes and his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which he said was actually sleep deprivation.

Later that month, Kanye tweeted saying he was turning his back on politics and instead focusing on ‘being creative’.

“My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative,” he wrote on Twitter.
