He’s conquered the music and fashion worlds, and his next stop is the White House. After a rambling monologue, rapper Kanye West wrapped up his Video Vanguard acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday with the bombshell declaration that he would be running for president in 2020.

Following West’s announcement, an unknown person filed paperwork with the Federal Election Committee on Monday to create a Political Action Commitee for Ye’s campaign. While West himself has not yet taken any strides to solidify his campaign plans, the internet has wasted no time preparing for the 2020 election season with all sorts of Yeezy-fied presidential swag.

Online selling community Etsy has been flooded with gear for West supporters both big and small, with designs catering to more conservative styles as well as those looking to make a statement.

And should Ye need a second-in-command, Etsy designers already have one in mind. Since it looks like Taylor Swift has put the bad blood that resulted from West’s 2009 mic-grabbing incident behind them, West’s VP should be an easy choice:

These shirts aren’t the only swag that Kanye supporters can score. West has promised that everyone who votes for him in the 2020 elections will get a free pair of Yeezy Boost 350s, the insanely popular designer sneakers that West designed for Adidas. The shoes sold out online within hours of their release earlier this month.

However, 2020 is still quite a long way off, so if you’re looking for a roundup of 2016 presidential gear to tide you over until Kanye starts campaigning, we’ve got you covered.
