Kanye West is headed to the White House

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the meeting on Monday, saying that West will meet with Trump as well as senior adviser Jared Kushner.

Singer and businessman Kanye West is scheduled to meet again with President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, Oct. 11, almost two years after West met with then-president-elect Trump at Trump Tower. "And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over", West said during a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel. Kanye is reportedly seeking job opportunities for former convicts, while criminal justice reform has reportedly been Kushner's main focus recently. He also plans on lobbying Trump to bring more manufacturing jobs to his native Chicago, and reduce gang violence.

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

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

Trump has on several occasions cited his friendly relationship with West in appeals to black Americans, who sided overwhelming in the 2016 election with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. He also got people talking after, once again, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

"It's so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, 'How could you support Trump?"

During his "Saturday Night Live" appearance, West sought to tamp down criticism about his relationship with the president. Do you know how wrong about politics you have to be for, like, me to notice? "I'm on them, they're great", Davidson said.

"You see they laughing at me".

West's wife, celebrity figure Kim Kardashian West, met with the president this past May, during which she successfully advocated for commuting the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother who had been spending a lifetime behind bars for a nonviolent drug crime she had committed decades ago.
