Step aside, Kanye.
Kim Kardashian has responded after being asked whether she would ever run for president.
During a recent interview on CNN's 'Van Jones Show, the reality TV star admitted that the prospect hadn't occurred to her.
"Oh, I don't think that's even on my mind," she began, before Jones pointed out, "Trump's president. It could happen."
"I know," replied Kim. "That's why Kanye loves him. It's the idea that anything can happen." Kanye West, Kim's husband of four years, originally stated his desire to run for US President in 2020 during the VMAs in 2015.
Following Donald Trump's presidential win in 2016, the rapper met up with the US leader at Trump Tower in New York to to "discuss multicultural issues", and later revealed that if had voted in the election, he would have voted for Trump.
"I guess never say never, but that's not going to be like a 'Kim's running!' That's not where I'm, what I'm going for," Kim continued. "I just want to help, starting one person at a time."
She added: "I think sometimes if more people would just put their personal feelings aside and talk about really issues that have to be discussed, then so much more can get done."
Earlier this month, President Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman named Alice Marie Johnson who received a life sentence for a first-time drug offense, after Kim personally advocated for her release.
