The 2020 presidential hopeful went on to explain that Americans should encourage, help and lift each other up.

“By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people, God intends us to be,” he concluded.
West has qualified to run for president in close to a dozen states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Iowa and Tennessee after announcing his plans on Twitter to run back in July.
