Kanye West and Donald Trump Meet

Donald Trump doesn’t have a lot of supporters in Hollywood, but one celebrity has been supporting the President-Elect for a long time. Rapper Kanye West, famous for his support of Beyonce and criticisms of President Bush, recently  visited Trump Tower  to meet Trump in person. The two posed for pictures in the lobby and refused to answer any questions, with Kanye stating he just wanted to take a picture. Trump and West then headed upstairs for a meeting that included Ivanka Trump.

 

Sources close to the President-Elect have stated that West is not being considered for a role in the administration. He was in New York City to look for a new apartment and further his entertainment career. West did not mention his statement that he would be running for president in 2020.

 

West was hospitalized last month during a concert. His wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed recently, and his mother’s anniversary falls in December. West spent nine days in the hospital being treated for exhaustion before his release. The remainder of his tour was cancelled, and tickets were fully refunded.

 

Both West and Trump are known for their controversial, headline-grabbing statements. The two seem to admire each other, with Trump referring to Kanye as a long-time friend. In 2015, West attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser with his wife, who has not commented on the election results.

 

 

Former Trump Models: The Rules Don’t Apply to Trump

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has taken a strident position against illegal immigration. The billionaire has played to an audience that blames illegal immigrants for taking their jobs, promising he will deport them and even build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep immigrants out. It’s a popular stance with frustrated voters – but did Trump’s own Trump Model Management company violate immigration laws? Some of his former models say that’s exactly what it did.

In an interview with Mother Jones Magazine, Canadian citizen Rachel Blais revealed how she was hired by Trump’s agency and worked in the U.S. for six months in 2004 before she had the legal right to do so. Blais even appeared on Trump’s television show, The Apprentice, during that time period. Hers is not the only such report – other models tell similar stories of working illegally in the U.S., before the agency obtained their work visas. The women claim that Trump’s agency even advised them to lie to airport security staff that they were tourists when coming in and out of the country. They also say that they were housed in overcrowded and overpriced apartments and that a high percentage of their earnings as models went toward various fees they did not understand.

Trump Model Management was contacted and declined to comment on this breaking story.
