Kanye West, fresh from a hospital stay, had an audience with Donald Trump Tuesday morning. The meeting took place at Trump Tower in NYC. According to TMZ, the rapper reached out for an opportunity to speak with the Donald and got about 15 minutes. After the sit-down they entered the Trump Tower lobby for a photo op.
Trump addressed the media and revealed that he and the Louis Vuitton Don are old pals. “We’ve been friends for a long time”
West later took to his Twitter account to give his side of his meet and greet with the president-elect. “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” West explained, “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”
Yeezus is not the only one who met with Trump. Football stars Jim Brown and Ray Lewis got some face time with him as well in meetings on Tuesday as well.
