West's billionaire wife Kim Kardashian endorsed "Ye" by quoting his tweet with an American flag emoji. Technology entrepreneur Elon Musk also told West he had his "full support."

Though hundreds of thousands of fans were in favour of West being in the oval office, many pointed out that it was already too late to contest the nomination of one of the major parties with the election being only four months away.
According to Ballotpedia, it is already too late to get on the ballot as an independent candidate in the states of Texas, North Carolina, Maine, New York, New Mexico, and Indiana.
The US Presidential Election is slated for Nov. 3.
