American rapper Kanye West’s dream to become the next president of the United States of America (USA) may have suffered some major setbacks following recent revelations making the rounds online.
According to reports by NME, the business mogul missed voter registration deadline in some states. This means the intending president missed the chance to appear on the ballot paper in six states across the country.
West had taken his fans and followers on social media by surprise after he took to his official Twitter page, on Saturday, 5 July to reveal his intention to run for president.
The rapper posted that he hopes to run for the seat of power in November, going up against incumbent President Donald Trump and possible Democrat nominee Joe Biden.

Similarly, West missed the deadline in Maine set for June 1, June 25 for New Mexico and June 30 for Indiana.
