Rapper Wants to Be President – level 2

13-07-2020 07:00

Kanye West is an American rapper and songwriter. Besides music, he is also a successful fashion designer.

This week, West announced that he would run for US president as an independent candidate. The election takes place this year, and West still could meet the deadline in some states. However, some people do not believe that West wants to become president. Some people think that West wants to make more people interested in his work. West has just released his latest single, and he will release a new album soon.

A candidate for US president must prepare many documents, and it is a long process. It is not clear if West is ready to become a candidate for US president.

Difficult words: independent candidate (the person who wants to get a job, and he does not belong to any political party), election (when people choose someone for a job, usually in politics), deadline (the latest time or date when something is possible).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
