美国说唱巨星Kanye West在推特上表示要参选美国总统。

美国说唱巨星Kanye West在推特上表示要参选美国总统。这是继2015年后,他再次声称要参与竞选。他的这一举动是纯粹的娱乐炒作,还是有所谋求的政治策略?一起来看今天的讲解。

Kanye West again says he will run for president

坎耶·韦斯特再次表示要参选美国总统

This is an excerpt of the original article. Read the full article at the bottom of the page.

US rapper Kanye West has said he is running for president, potentially[Potential N adj] pitting him against [Compete with somebody]a man he says he admires, Donald Trump.

美国说唱歌手坎耶·韦斯特说他准备参选总统,这意味着他可能会与自己钦佩的唐纳德·特朗普一较高下。

"We must now realize[Deliver ] the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," he tweeted. "I am running for president of the United States!"

他发表推文说:“现在,我们必须相信上帝、统一愿景、共筑未来,以实现美国的承诺。”

But it's unclear whether West is really running.

但目前尚不能明确韦斯特是否真的会参选。

"We would have created so many jobs that I'm not gonna run, I'm gonna walk," he said, adding he was considering changing his name for the run to "Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West".

他说:“我们会创造很多就业机会,所以我不用费什么劲儿就能轻松当选。”他还补充说,正在考虑在竞选中把自己的名字改为“基督徒·天才·亿万富翁·坎耶·韦斯特”。

In his tweet on Saturday, US Independence Day, West, 43, did not say if his supposed [So called claimed ]run would be affiliated [Be connected to ]with a particular political party.

这条在上周六美国独立日发布的推文中,43岁的韦斯特并未表明自己是否会作为某个政党的候选人参选。

In order to appear on the ballot as an independent candidate, West would have to gather a certain amount of signatures and register in states by a particular deadline. The deadline has already passed in some major states but the music star would still technically[技术层面,理论] have time to file in many others.

如果他想要作为独立候选人参选的话,韦斯特必须在特定的截止日期之前收集一定量的签名,并在各州进行登记。在一些关键的州,截止日期已经过了,但就规定而言,这位音乐明星仍有时间在很多其他州提交申请。

In 2018, West made a bizarre [奇怪的亮相]appearance at the White House with President Trump during which he wore a Make America Great Again hat and made an expletive-filled rant that Mr Trump described as "quite something".

2018年,韦斯特曾在白宫与特朗普总统一同露面。他头戴一顶写着“让美国再次伟大”的帽子,飚了一大段被特朗普称为“了不起”的脏话,其场面令人摸不着头脑。
