In case you weren't aware, Young Thug says he plans to run for president in 2024, with Gunna as his vice president. Thugger announced his tentative candidacy back on July 4, but we haven't heard much of his platform, besides that he says he'd make a better president than Kanye West. In a new interview on Los Angeles's Real 92.3, he's expanding a bit on what he'd bring as commander-in-chief.

"I'll change the status of billionaires. I'll probably give a person that's gonna proceed to make a billion...I'll make it so that you have to endorse this money somewhere, you have to give this money to the poor," comrade Thug told his interviewer. "We gonna take this shit away. We gonna freeze it... If I'm the president, I'm gonna do it for the people." Watch the snippet below.
