Rapper and R&B star Akon claimed in a recent interview that he is very seriously considering mounting a presidential bid in 2020. Ive been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously, Akon told Newsweek. But I didnt want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what Im doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people] to say, You know what, if you run well support you.'
Akon, whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, was born in St. Louis, Missouri and spent much of his childhood in Senegal. The 45-year-old entrepreneur, who is developing plans for a futuristic cryptocurrency-run city in West Africa, suggested President Donald Trumps immigration policies have help nudged him toward launching a White House run.
I feel a lot more unsafe. I feel unempowered. Honestly, I feel its gonna be a fight, the singer said of a possible bid. I feel like I should be always prepared for the unexpected. I feel very uncomfortable. And I feel a lot of Americans do; even some white Americans feel that way because theyre watching backlash of his decisions. Its not whats happening now, because its clear its creating a whole bunch of divide today.

Record executives should have never let them record this garbage
So he wants to be like President Comacho in Idiorcracy?
Does anyone even care if he’s eligible?

Thats it! Trump has no chance now.
Should be a step up from the democrats who are expected to run in 2020.
If Obama can make it, why not another nobody?

Akon and Avabatti should run on the same ticket... it would be like the ACPL is running.
