Kanye West And Donald Trump To Meet This Thursday
Kanye West is set to meet with President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner on Thursday at the White House.
According to White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, West and Trump will be having lunch together at the White House and will also meet with Kushner.
West’s visit to the White House falls in line with Kushner’s efforts at criminal justice reform.
The rapper hopes to discuss two key issues during his visit at the White House: job opportunities for ex-convicts and ways to increase manufacturing jobs in and around his hometown of Chicago alongside prison reform, how to prevent gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago.
West’s visit follows two visits by his wife Kim Kardashian West, who has met with Trump at the White House and successfully secured a presidential pardon for a woman who was serving a life sentence in prison over non-violent drug charges.
West’s visit comes after he sparked controversy by wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat during an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” and delivering a pro-Trump speech on set.
