Kanye West's announcement that he plans to run for president in the 2020 election not only created quite a buzz but also resulted in support from famous friends, including SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. However, after publicly revealing that he was behind the "Stronger" rapper's decision to run against Donald Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, the Tesla founder is backpedaling and revisiting his previous statement.

In a now-deleted tweet, the entrepreneur responded to a follower that questioned why he had decided to lend his "full support" to West prior to the upcoming presidential election. "Cmon Elon - you're way too intelligent for this BS," read the tweet, according to Mashable.

"We may have more differences of opinion than I anticipated," he replied. 

Musk's change of heart followed a four-hour interview that the Grammy Award-winning artist recently gave to Forbes following his July 4 announcement. While speaking to the publication, West shared his thoughts on a wide range of topics, including President Trump, the death penalty, and abortion. Additionally, he revealed that he did not view former Vice President Biden as special, which countered his feelings about both Trump and former President Barack Obama.

With or without Musk's encouragement, West's decision to officially enter the race prior to the 2020 election on Nov. 3 would likely come with "major obstacles." If he ultimately decides to move forward, he would need to take certain steps in order to appear next to Trump and Biden on the ballots in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. To complete his goal, he would either have to obtain backing from a smaller political party, classify himself as an independent, or have supporters write in his name. 

Since deleting his reversal, Musk has not given an update on his stance regarding West's 2020 political aspirations, so it remains to be seen whether he will support or oppose his presidential run moving forward.
