American singer Akon has made known his intention to run for the highest office in the United States, come 2020.
The Mama Africa crooner said that he was 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 Trump’s stance on immigration among other issues.
“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.”
