Kanye West insists he’s serious about a future White House bid, saying it “100 percent can happen.”

“If I decide to do it, it will be done. I’m not gonna try,” West, 41, replied when asked if he would “try” entering the political world.

The “Yeezus” rapper, who’s married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian, first publicly announced plans for a political bid during a 2015 appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

“I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West declared at the time.

“When I run, I’m not gonna f— up the money,” West, a fashion designer who runs an apparel company, said Thursday. “And what I like about being the founder of a… $1.8 billion company, is this is awesome training because America is a company.”

“You should not be president unless you ran a multi-billion dollar business, in my opinion,” West added.
