While the 2020 presidential election has yet to be officially decided, Kanye West knows it’s a wrap on his campaign.

The rapper picked up just 60,000 votes across 12 states in Tuesday’s election, according to Syracuse.com. Still, the hip-hop mogul is setting his sights on the 2024 race.

After the results came, West tweeted “KANYE 2024,” along with a photo of himself standing in front of an election returns map on TV.

Some people on social media urged West to move on from politics.

Twitter user @RonanSullivan6 wrote: “Are you just going to name the year of the next election after you haven’t won the current one each time.”

Another Twitter user called Kanye out for taking votes away from viable candidates during one of the most contentious elections in modern history.

@SehrishNoorali tweeted: “Crazy how I went from admiring and loving Kanye to HATING him. Screw him for stealing crucial votes from someone that could have been a WAY better president than Trump”.

West uploaded several videos on his Twitter account showing he wrote himself in on his Park County, Wyoming ballot. The rapper owns a ranch in Wyoming and has been spending time there during the global pandemic.

In July, West admitted he had never voted before in any previous elections.
