In a move that has inflamed his fans, Kanye West has once again made political waves as today he unexpectedly attended a meeting with Donald Trump at Trump Tower to “talk about life”.
Early this morning Kanye was seen entering Trump Tower with a small entourage, and quite casually dressed in black sweatgear and wearing white sneakers. He made no announcement as he entered the elevator, but a short time later descended to the lobby with Donald Trump to pose for some pictures.
“We’re just friends, just friends. He’s a good man. Going well. Long time – We’ve been friends for a long time,’ Trump said. ‘Life, we discussed life.”

Kanye had no statement for reporters, but instead said, “I just want you to take my picture right now.”
Trump departed back to the elevator, saying “Man, you take care of yourself, I’ll see you soon.” Ivanka Trump was also said to have taken part in the meeting and can be seen in the background in lobby.
Last month Kanye made waves in Hollywood as he went on several political rants during his concerts, making several statements in support of Trump while at the same time criticizing the way the Democrats ran their campaign.
“Echoing is what made people think Hillary was going to win, you thought because what the Internet was telling you, that she was gonna win”, Kanye said at his concert. He also stated that although he did not vote, he would have voted for Donald Trump if he did.
Kanye said as a black man and as a celebrity he felt persecuted for supporting Trump, but feels vindicated after Trump’s election victory.
Rapper Kanye West has also just come off a nine day stay at a medical institution, which he reportedly admitted himself willingly after citing “stress” as the reason. Curiously, after breaking the Hollywood narrative against Trump and speaking openly about his support of the President-elect, he is admitted to a mental health center.
Sources have said that Kanye West is not being considered for any position within Trump’s administration and the meeting was strictly personal.
Not everyone was happy about Kanye’s meeting with Trump, especially after his supportive statements towards the President-elect last month, as anti-Trump fans of Kanye blasted him on Twitter.
Remember when I said I would never turn on Kanye? I LIED TO YOU AND IM SORRY!! Kanye is cancelled. I’m beyond done. No more no more no more.

Prepared to get the cold shoulder from Hollywood Kanye, as they don’t take kindly to celebrities breaking from the liberal pack mentality.
