Kanye West reportedly set to meet Donald Trump at the White House
American rapper Kanye West is reportedly set to meet Donald Trump at the White House. His wife, Kim Kardashian West earlier visited the white house in May to meet with Trump and Kushner to discuss prison reform. Their meeting resulted in the president granting clemency in the case of convicted drug dealer Alice Marie Johnson, after Kim had campaigned for her release.
According to The New York Times, Kanye West will meet with both Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, in Washington DC soon.
It’s believed the three men will discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts, as well as the number of manufacturing jobs in West’s hometown of Chicago.
Kanye West, has in the past faced intense criticism for his support of Trump. The rapper deleted his social media accounts following a backlash to his Saturday Night Live appearance, in which he wore a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap and made a pro-Trump speech after the cameras had stopped rolling.
However there has been no official word concerning the meeting yet.
