Kanye West Expected To Meet With Donald Trump At White House

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.

It looks like Kanye West is getting his wish of meeting with Donald Trump this week.

Kanye West - one of President Trump's most famous and vocal supporters - will meet with the president at the White House on Thursday to discuss matters such as prison reform and gang violence. West hopes to discuss two key issues during his visit at the White House: job opportunities for ex-convicts and ways to increase manufacturing jobs in and around his hometown of Chicago.

Jared Kushner, Mr Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, will also be present, the paper reports.

As if it weren't enough to earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and tear through the 2018 schedule with 108 wins. Sanchez, whose batting average didn't top.200 after June 8, also had a solo shot in the second inning to give NY a 2-0 lead.

West's meeting follows that of his wife, Kim Kardashian West, in May, which resulted in the release of 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1996 for a first-time non-violent drug offense. At the time, the singer John Legend, a close friend of Mr West, called the meeting a "publicity stunt".

Mr Trump recently tweeted praise for the musician after he closed a Saturday Night Live show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivered an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled. "He's racist", said West. Do you know how wrong about politics you have to be for, like, me to notice?

"If someone inspires me, and I connect with them, I don't have to believe in all their policies", he said. "I support our president, bottom line, no matter who they are". We need to have a dialogue not a diatribe, because if you want something to change, it's not going to change by saying, 'F**k that person.' Try love.

"They bullied me backstage".
