July 17, 2020 | 9:30am
Potential presidential candidate Kanye West on Friday photoshopped his face onto Mount Rushmore — then tweeted the photo with the caption “2020.”
The doctored pic shows the rapper’s mug alongside President Abraham Lincoln’s on the South Dakota monument.
West, who is married to Kim Kardashian, announced his presidential bid in a July 4 tweet.
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” the Chicago rapper tweeted, adding, “#2020VISION.”
He appears on the presidential ballot in Oklahoma — after filing the $35,000 filing fee this week — though questions are still swirling over whether he’s actually running.
The billionaire sneaker mogul said he was “taking the red hat off” and starting his own party for 2020, “the Birthday Party.”
He said his third party will be called the Birthday Party, “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”
Ye’s Mount Rushmore tweet has garnered more than 79,000 likes as of Friday morning.
