Kanye West To Visit Trump, Discuss Prison Reform, Violence

Share

At the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards, he famously interrupted an acceptance speech by the then 19-year-old Swift for Best Female Video to say that Beyonce deserved the honor. Given how West will likely enter the political arena as a Republican, the singing duo do not want any association with them.

After Kanye West's very pro-Trump rant on Saturday Night Live last week, Ariana Grande took the opportunity to roast him a little bit on social media.

Seems like Kanye needs a hug from his boo at the White House. "He's racist.'" said West, who is 41.

"When he gets into these Twitter rants, it's very hard for him to stop".

"How does she just pop up at the White House?" she continued. I'ma break it down to you right now.

Kanye West posted this photo of himself wearing a hat saying "Make America Great Again" to his Twitter account, September 30, 2018. "I know controversy sells, but this is a little controversial".

"We've been friends for a long time", Trump told reporters.

The rapper is scheduled to have lunch with the president and also meet his son-in-law Jared Kushner, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed.

The two men are expected to discuss prison reform, gang violence and and manufacturing resurgence in the US.

In July, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a Tennessee woman serving a life term for nonviolent drug offenses, after he and Kushner met with West's wife, the reality star and socialite Kim Kardashian West, to discuss the case.

"It's habit because for a hundred years, African-Americans have gone with Democrats but now they're changing and they're changing fast and they're coming".

West has been a vocal supporter of President Trump since his 2016 campaign. He was booed at a concert shortly after the election for declaring his support for Trump, although he said he had not voted.

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West are now both White House invitees.
