The recently rehabilitated rapper, Kanye West who arrived at Trump Tower in NYC earlier today, has met with the President-elect, Donald Trump for 'fifteen' minutes.
American rapper and entreprenuer, Kanye West met with President-elect, Donald Trump on Tuesday morning, the latest in a series of sometimes surprising visitors to Trump Tower.
“Just friends. Just friends, and he’s a good man,” Trump told reporters in the lobby, responding to questions about the purpose of their meeting. “We’ve been friends for a long time.”
“I just wanted to take a picture right now,”West said, when asked if he is considering performing at Trump’s inauguration or running for president in 2020.“So long, man, you take care of yourself. I’ll see you soon,” Trump said to West as they shook hands and parted ways.
During a mid-concert rant last month, West said he would have cast his ballot for Trump if he had voted in the presidential election.
“If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted [for] Trump,” he said, calling Trump’s campaign approach “absolutely genius.”
Trump has previously praised West as well.“You know what? I will never say bad about him, you know why? Because he loves Trump!. Kanye West has been so great,”Trump said in September 2015, after West suggested he would run for president in 2020.
The topics of their meeting have yet to be revealed entirely, but the two posed together for some press photos and footage following the meeting.
