Mum's the word! Kanye West didn't respond when he was asked on Friday at LAX if he still planned on running for president in 2020
Big announcement: Back in August 2015 Kanye announced during his acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award that he planned on running for president in 2020
Despite ignoring the question, the father-of-two was fan friendly, and paused to sign autographs before continuing into the airport.
He was likely heading somewhere chilly as he sported a black, fleece-lined leather jacket over a purple crew neck sweatshirt.

In good spirits! Kanye showed off a smile as he walked into the airport, before he was asked about running for president
The idea of Kanye as president first emerged during his acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award during the 2015 MTV VMAs.
'If my grandfather was here right now he would not let me back down! I don't know I'm fittin' to lose after this,' Kanye said, toward the end of his 11-minute speech.
'It don't matter though, cuz it ain't about me. It's about ideas, bro. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth.'
Feeling a chill? The rapper bundled up in a black fleece-lined leather jacket and a purple crew neck sweatshirt
What's the deal? It's been a while since the designer has spoken about his plans to run for president
He concluded the passionate speech by shocking everyone - including wife Kim Kardashian - as he added: 'And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.'
'We’re numb to places on the Earth that we don’t live – like our life is okay but it’s okay for other people’s lives to not be okay,' he later explained of his inspiration for the speech, in an interview with BBC Radio 1.
He added: 'When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views, I don’t have views on politics.'

Traveling solo: The performer was spotted without wife Kim, who has been holed up at their LA mansion since returning after her traumatizing Paris robbery in October
'I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.'
Meanwhile, his wife Kim Kardashian, 36, has been holed up at the couple's LA mansion following the much publicized theft of her jewelry in Paris.
Friends and family have been pitching in to manage her website and app - brother Rob Kardashian and his fiancée Blac Chyna have taken over this week - as she tries to recuperate from the traumatizing ordeal.
