When asked about his opinion on the TV star running for office and her chances of winning an election, the FUBU founder lists some of the reasons why Kim is a perfect candidate to be POTUS.
Kim Kardashian has been actively helping others when it comes to prison reform and is attending classes to become a lawyer, and that seemingly impresses Daymond John. The investor of “Shark Tank” even shares in a new interview that he believes the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star can be the president of the U.S. one day.
When asked about his opinion on the TV star running for office and her chances of winning an election, the FUBU founder responded to TMZ, “Listen, I think Kim could be President. She went ahead and she freed Alice (Marie Johnson) out of jail, she worked with the President, she’s going to get a further education….”
The businessman continued saying of the wife of Kanye West, “At the palm of her hand, she can touch 200 million people and maybe in eight years, she’ll have 500 million, 600 million (followers). She has LGBT in her family, has mixed relationships in her family, has a family full of women. She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t smoke, she doesn’t do anything else and people feel like they know her.”
While what Daymond said totally made sense, Kim previously shared that she didn’t have the desire to run for president. Speaking to CNN‘s Van Jones, “Oh, I don’t think that’s even on my mind,” she said. “I guess never say never, but that’s not going to be like a ‘Kim’s running!’ That’s not where I’m, what I’m going for. I just want to help, starting one person at a time. I think sometimes if more people would just put their personal feelings aside and talk about really issues that have to be discussed, then so much more can get done.”
Kim, who is a passionate about criminal justice reform, doubled down the sentiment in a March, 2019 interview with the New York Times in which she said, “No, I don’t think so,” when she was asked if she would consider to be a president. The SKIMS founder added, “It would be probably the most stressful job in the world, and I don’t think that’s for me.”
