“I want America to come together, so I’m here to announce that I’m running … I’m just kidding!” he added. “I am not running for president. We cannot have three failed politicians in a family, “he said, referring to Kanye West’s fateful bid for the presidency, and Caitlyn JennerThe race for governor of California failed.
