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.
