Singer, Akon Hints At Running For US President In 2020
Veteran American singer Akon is reportedly considering running for the highest office in the world, ‘The Oval‘ come 2020.
The ‘Mama Africa’ crooner said that he is disappointed with Donald Trump’s style of leadership.
Speaking to Newsweek Akon said:-
“I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously.”
“But I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people]to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.’”
Akon faulted Donald Trump’s stance on immigration among other things.
“I feel a lot more unsafe,” he said. “I feel unempowered. Honestly, I feel it’s gonna be a fight. I feel like I should be always prepared for the unexpected. I feel very uncomfortable.”
