President Trump told Real Clear Politics during an interview in the Oval Office on Tuesday that he believes a Kanye West candidacy in 2020 “would be a great trial run” before making a bid for the White House in November of 2024.

Trump said that while West has “a real voice” his window of opportunity is closing with just fourth months left until the 2020 election.

“It’s very interesting,” Trump said. “It’d have to be limited to certain states because in some states the deadline has been missed.”

Still, Trump acknowledged he is watching the rapper’s plans closely.
