Kanye West to visit White House for meeting with Donald Trump

Kanye West to visit White House for meeting with Donald Trump

The rapper, who has faced criticism for his public support of Trump, will meet the president in Washington DC on Thursday, according to The New York Times.

The influential rapper emerged as one of Trump's most high-profile celebrity supporters during the 2016 presidential election campaign. "Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago".

Mr West, who is married to Kim Kardashian, wore a hat with Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again" during his performance on the United States comedy show Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. At the time, the singer John Legend, a close friend of Mr West, called the meeting a "publicity stunt". They discussed the life sentence of grandmother Alice Marie Johnson on drug charges. After the show was over, West donned a "Make America Great Again" hat and went on a tear. "He's racist", said West. You heard 'em, they scream at me, they bully me.

'I know Kanye is saying, this is the real me.

"And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear".

It looked like she watched this week's taping of the show from backstage, and when Pete Davidson came on the screen, she took a picture and posted it to her Instagram story with a very appropriately placed "I love you like Kanye loves Kanye" gif sticker.

"If someone inspires me, and I connect with them, I don't have to believe in all their policies", he said.
