Chelsea Clinton shares thoughts on Kanye West running for president in 2020

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

One Clinton is applauding Kanye West's "awesome" announcement that he is running for president in 2020.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former president Bill Clinton, says she supports the rapper's declaration at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, and hopes it will inspire others to want to run for office as well.

"Who runs for office is really important," the former first daughter tells MTV News. "And even if (West) 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."

Clinton, 35, admitted that although she supports his decision, she's not sure if she would vote for him.

"I think it depends on who he'd be running against," she answered when asked if she would pick him as her number one choice in the 2020 election.
