He then added with a laugh: ‘I think he’s going to be running against me. We’ll see.’
When asked if he was serious about mounting a campaign for 2024, he replied: ‘Yeah, I think that’ll be enough time to get my s*** done.’

Bilzerian was later asked if he thinks President Trump would endorse him over Kanye.
‘Probably Kanye,’ he said with a laugh. ‘We’ll see.’
If Bilzerian does run against West, that would make two celebrity supporters of Trump going head to head.
Bilzerian is known by the nickname ‘the king of Instagram,’ where he has more than 29 million followers.
In 2016, Bilzerian said he preferred Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. He is seen right with Trump in December 2015
His Instagram account is chock full of photos and videos showing Bilzerian surrounded by scantily clad women in exotic locations.
Bilzerian has also been known to weigh in on politics.
In 2015, after Trump announced his candidacy for president, Bilzerian tweeted a photo of himself with the former reality television star.
‘In an age of p***ified political correctness, you have to respect the people who remain unfiltered,’ Bilzerian tweeted about Trump.
A few weeks before Trump shocked the world and defeated Clinton in the elections, Bilzerian gave an interview to Larry King explaining why he supported The Donald.
‘I don’t agree with everything the guy does or says [but] one thing I do like is the fact that he’s kind of raw and unfiltered,’ he said.
Bilzerian said he preferred Trump over Clinton because ‘even if I don’t agree with their opinion, [I would rather] they give it to me straight.’
West, of course, has been an outspoken supporter of Trump.
He famously met the president in the Oval Office for a photo op.
His wife, Kim Kardashian West, has also used her ties to the Trump administration to lobby for criminal justice reform.
