Kanye West ended his Video Music Awards acceptance speech by declaring that he was planning to run for president in 2020. And, according to his wife Kim Kardashian, he wasn't joking.

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kardashian admitted that West's decision to run "was news to me," but that the rapper plans to follow-through. "I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he'll do his best," Kardashian said. "And he will. It's been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement. I don't know if that was planned and I just didn't know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there."

And Kardashian is all-in on the idea. "I think it would be so much fun to be in the White House," she said. "I was joking with him. I was like, 'You're going to have to make it to a second term,' because he loves redecorating."
