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.

 

 

Kanye West Has Meeting With Donald Trump

Kanye West has been in the news quite a bit over the past couple of months. His wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed of millions of dollars in Paris. More recently, Kanye suffered an epic meltdown while on stage during a concert. He walked off stage after only performing for five minutes. All of the remaining dates on his concert tour were cancelled. West subsequently checked himself into a hospital to deal with the effects of extreme exhaustion. He was out of the public eye for more than one week during his stay at the hospital.

 

However, West made a return to the spotlight in a very big way. He was seen entering Trump Tower to meet with the future President of the United States, Donald Trump. West had apparently made a request to meet with Trump for 15 minutes. Trump agreed to the request because he has been friends with West for many years. Neither West or Trump would comment on what they talked about in the meeting. They only posed for the photos afterward and would not answer questions from the media.

 

West has declared that he did not vote in the presidential election. However, he has also stated on several occasions that he would have voted for Trump if he has actually cast a vote. The meeting with Trump was strange because Kim Kardashian was a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. In fact, Kardashian hosted a fund raising event for Clinton which was also attended by West.
