Unlikely presidential candidate Kanye West has said he is voting for the first time in his life ‘for someone I truly trust… me’.

The rapper, 43, tweeted Tuesday morning to announce he was casting his vote for himself on election day, after the star made a late play for the White House earlier this year.

‘God is so good,’ he wrote on Twitter.

‘Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me.’

It is not clear whether West is casting his vote in one of the states where he is a nominee or whether he will write himself onto the ballot – a move he has encouraged his fans to make.

This comes as ABC announced the rapper will appear on the first post-election day episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Wednesday night.

West, who has had a tumultuous year with a very public battle with his mental health and his marriage to Kim Kardashian reportedly coming under strain, failed to meet the deadlines needed to get on ballots in all 50 states.

He is an official presidential candidate in 12 US states including Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Iowa, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, West Virginia and Vermont.

He is also a write-in candidate in five states including Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Rhode Island and is listed as a vice presidential candidate alongside American Independent party presidential nominee Rocky De La Fuente in California.

West famously endorsed Donald Trump back in 2016 and sported a MAGA hat and visited the president at the White House in October 2018.

This April he vowed to vote for Trump in the 2020 election telling GQ magazine: ‘We know who I’m voting on… I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over because of it!’
