President Trump Will Have Lunch With Kanye West This Week

President Trump Will Have Lunch With Kanye West This Week”

The rapper, who has faced criticism for his public support of Trump, will meet the president in Washington DC on Thursday, according to The New York Times.

His upcoming visit will not be the first time he has met Mr Trump, having been pictured with the then president-elect at Trump Tower in December 2016.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed to the White House TV pool that West will be joining the president for lunch, and also meeting with Kushner. While he has the President's ear over lunch, he will talk with Trump about increasing manufacturing jobs in Chicago, West's home city. West wanted to discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts.

West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, has visited the Trump White House twice since her husband announced his backing of the president.

West also made headlines last month for a pro-Trump speech at the end of his appearance on "Saturday Night Live", which didn't make the air.

[O] ne person briefed on the meeting said that Mr. "They said, "Don't go out there with that hat on, '" West said of his red 'Make America Great Again" cap. I'ma break it down to you right now. You heard 'em, they scream at me, they bully me.

In an apparent reference to Trump, Yeezy said: "If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don't have to believe in all their policies".

"If I ever got on a plane and the pilot said, 'I just want all you to know, this is the real me flying", I'd jump out.
