Washington D.C. – Kanye West is apparently headed to the White House. As reported by the New York Times, the polarizing MC is expected to meet with Donald Trump and son-in-law/senior adviser Jared Kushner on Thursday (October 11).
A representative for ‘Ye confirmed the meeting to the NYT. The G.O.O.D. Music boss will reportedly first meet with Kushner then have lunch with 45.
According to a source briefed on the appointment, Kanye is meeting with Kushner, who has been attempting to overhaul the criminal justice system, to discuss job opportunities for former convicts.
With Trump, ‘Ye wants to talk about how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in his hometown of Chicago.
Over the past couple of years, ‘Ye has seemingly alienated (and infuriated) some of his fans by aligning himself with Trump.
Late last month, Kanye appeared on Saturday Night Live sporting a MAGA hat. After the show ended, he proceeded to go on a pro-Trump rant. Longtime SNL actor Kenan Thompson said it was like ‘Ye was holding the cast “hostage.”
Shortly after firing off some inflammatory tweets about abolishing the 13th amendment and going on TMZ Live to proclaim “alien ‘Ye” is going to Africa to finish Yandhi, he deleted his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Trump and Kanye met at Trump Towers in 2016, not too long after ‘Ye’s mental breakdown. Since then, they have exchange a handful of tweets praising one another.
