  • Kanye West shared his "#2020VISION" promo poster recently featuring the faces of Anna Wintour and Kirsten Dunst.
  • Both the Vogue editor and actor said they did not give the rapper permission to use their photos.
  • The promo comes amid Kanye's rumoured Republican ties, with many speculating he's running as a means to get Trump reelected.

Kanye West has made a few bizarre moves as of late – his bid to run for president comes to mind – so we’re not completely surprised at his new campaign poster.

The rapper turned fashion mogul turned presidential hopeful took to social media on Wednesday sharing the poster. "#2020VISION," he tweeted.

The poster featured diverse faces, including Anna Wintour and Kirsten Dunst's.

Both a rep for Anna Wintour and Kirsten Dunst told People they did not agree to the use of their images though.

Kanye’s bid to run for president comes as wife Kim Kardashian fears for his mental health after one very emotional rally and a series of tweets slamming the Kardashian-Jenners.

Though many speculated the couple’s marriage is on the rocks, they’ve decided to take a family trip with the kids to sort through any issues.

As far as the presidency is concerned, many say Kanye may just be running as a means to get Trump reelected. After all, the Donda hitmaker did recently have a secret meeting with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner amid rumours Republican operatives are trying desperately to get him on the ballot.
