Trump lunches with Kanye West, will talk justice reform

Julia Gonzales | 11 October, 2018, 20:58

President Donald Trump will have lunch Thursday with rapper Kanye West, who he calls a longtime friend.

West began the meeting by praising Trump's efforts in North Korea saying, "On day one you solved one of [Obama's] biggest troubles".

West and Trump were set to discuss a range of issues during his White House visit - including manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang crime and reducing violence in Chicago, where the A-lister grew up.

During a Thursday appearance on MSNBC, Washington Post reporter Jonathan Capehart ridiculed President Trump's "laughable" embrace of Kanye West as a spokesman for the African-American community.

A senior White House official told Politico that officials planned "to look into" Fox News deciding to cut away from presidential rallies, suggesting that Bill Shine, the White House communications director and former Fox News president, would get in touch with his former colleagues.

"He's said very nice things about me in the past ... extremely positive things", Trump said. The New York Times first reported news of the meeting.

"Could very well be", Trump said in the Oval Office when asked if he thought the MAGA-hat wearing rapper could be elected president.

West has received a lot of backlash from fans and his fellow celebrities for his support of the president including a recent slew of criticism from several members of "Saturday Night Live" who bashed West after going on a pro-Trump rant at the end of the show earlier this month.

Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow and Recording Industry Association of America President Mitch Glazier, along with other music industry leaders are expected to attend. It would have been very unfair, I don't think really the heat was very hot.

"There were people who said Trump would never win", West said in the interview. West also says that many people believe that if someone's black, then that person has to be a Democrat.
