At Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West announced that he intends to run for president of the United States in 2020.

Though the start of the 2020 election cycle remains in the distant future, The Washington Post notes that 24-year-old Maryland Republican activist Eugene Craig, whose Facebook page lists him as a former member of Youth for Ron Paul 2012, has already started a serious super PAC called “Ready for Kanye” dedicated to promoting the rapper, songwriter, and producer’s candidacy. Craig, a fan of West’s music, said that he would support West if he runs as a Republican and if there is no Republican incumbent in 2020.

Following West’s announcement, Rolling Stone asked Donald Trump, whose presidential candidacy has been compared to West’s, to comment on it. Said Trump, “I was actually watching. I saw him do it, and I said, ‘That’s very interesting. I wonder who gave him that idea?‘”

He added, “[Kanye’s] actually a different kind of person than people think. He’s a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday.

Trump’s affinity for West appears to stem from a personal relationship between the two. “Well, he’s said very nice things about me in the past, and he knows my daughter a little bit — Ivanka. And, he’s said very good things about me — very very, extremely positive things,” said Trump.

The market research firm Echelon Insights has already conducted a 500-person poll via Google Consumer Surveys to test West’s theoretical candidacy against Donald Trump and found that Trump led West “38-21 with 41 percent undecided.

During the interview with Rolling Stone, Trump joked that he had already lost his first supporter to West. “Miley Cyrus said, ‘Oh, I was going to vote for Trump but now I’m voting for [Kanye].’ So it sounds like she was all made up for me, and he took her away.
