    Kanye West's confidence in his presidential bid comes as he appears to have missed the majority of state's deadlines for registering to be on the ballot. So far he has only held one campaign event, which turned out to be rather extravagant.

    Kanye West, a bizarre presidential hopeful, congratulated Joe Biden's running mate Kamala Harris for being the Democratic VP pick in his Twitter, but in a rather defiant way. He called himself "the future president", asserting that Harris would have been friends with his mother.

    West's presidential bid, despite his confidence, remains questionable and rather odd, since by now he only made it onto the state ballots of Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Vermont. 

    His campaign event, while lacking details on his political campaign, has prompted speculations over his mental health, particularly because of his emotional episode when he broke down in tears when revealing he "almost killed" his daughter North. 

    "I know my mom and Kamala Harris would have been friends ... congratulations on being the democratic Vice President nominee... all love and respect from the future president. It’s an honour to run against you", West tweeted on Saturday.

    ​Kamala Harris received congratulations from Ye over Joe Biden picking her as his running mate earlier on Tuesday. Their ticket is yet to be officially announced at the Democratic National Convention, scheduled for 17-20 August.
