Akon who spoke with Newsweek, hinted on contesting against Donald Trump in 2020. According to him, Donald Trump’s stance on a lot of things has him concerned about the future of the country.
“I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously. But I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people] to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.’”
I feel a lot more unsafe,” he said.“I feel unempowered. Honestly, I feel it’s gonna be a fight. I feel like I should be always prepared for the unexpected. I feel very uncomfortable.”
“And I feel a lot of Americans do; even some white Americans feel that way because they’re watching backlash of his decisions. It’s not what’s happening now, because it’s clear it’s creating a whole bunch of divide today. But I think tomorrow that impact is going to be so much more devastating.”
In the last few years, Akon has shifted his focus to bettering the world, doing most of his work in Africa. He seems poised to rule stateside as he’s eyeing a potential run for the 2020 presidency.
