Kanye to meet with Trump at the White House

10 October 2018

Kanye, who has faced a backlash over his vocal support of the President & for wearing MAGA hats, will meet with Mr. Kushner first to talk about criminal justice system, before going on to have lunch with President Trump.

West's wife, celebrity figure Kim Kardashian West, met with the president this past May, during which she successfully advocated for commuting the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother who had been spending a lifetime behind bars for a nonviolent drug crime she had committed decades ago.

West is planning to discuss the opening of employment opportunities for former prison convicts, a subject already being studied by the White House, according to The New York Times.

Neither Trump nor West provided much information on what they met about in December 2016. "Thank you, Kanye West", Trump said.

Pop star Lana Del Rey called West's support for Trump "a loss for the culture", and Avengers star Chris Evans called his statements on slavery "retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying".

Most recently, West made news when he defiantly sported a "Make America Great Again" cap during a performance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live". "You know how wrong about politics you need to be for like me to notice?"

We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment.

"I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country", she added. Previously, West revealed that he was encouraging Colin Kaepernick to sit down with the President.
