Taylor Swift jokes about Kanye West's presidential run

Taylor Swift has joked that she will be Kanye West's running mate in the 2020 presidential election since the rapper sent her a huge bouquet of flowers after his lifetime achievement win at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The Blank Space hitmaker presented West with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the ceremony in Los Angeles on 30 August (15) after the two buried the hatchet following the rapper's infamous stage invasion when Swift trumped Beyonce to win Video of the Year in 2009.


Swift joked and embraced the rapper at the prizegiving last Sunday, and West sent her a huge bunch of white roses to thank her for moving on after their previous run-in. He ended his acceptance speech by telling the audience that he had decided to run for President in 2020, and Swift has now joked that she will join his political campaign, writing in a post on Instagram.com, "Awwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs (sic)."
