While presidential candidate Donald Trump would love the chance to run against Kanye West in the 2020 presidential election, it’s safe to say that Hillary Clinton isn’t too thrilled about the idea…

As previously reported, the 38-year-old rapper announced his plans to join the race for Commander-in-chief during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, but Clinton tells Ellen DeGeneres that she hopes he holds off on his political aspirations… for now…

“I heard him make the announcement and he said he wanted to run in 2020,” Clinton said. “I would only ask him if I’m running for reelection to wait.” She added, “But otherwise a lot of people want to run for president these days.”

Clinton also commented on possibly being one of the oldest presidents. “Well I think it’s very important, but the way I look at it is I would be the youngest women ever elected President of the United States,” the 67-year-old said.

And While Clinton may not be feeling West’s potential run for president, celebs like Rihanna are totally on board. “I mean people are voting for [Donald] Trump,” the bad gal told ET. “Who wouldn’t vote for Kanye?!”

And she may have a point… Would you vote for West? Sound off in the comment section below.
