Kanye West to Meet With Trump, Jared Kushner at White House

The rapper made headlines when he gave an untelevised pro-Trump speech while a guest on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ reports Hollywood Reporter.

Following an untelevised pro-Trump speech while a guest on Saturday Night Live last week, Kanye West is set to meet with the president and his son-in-law Jared Kushner at the White House on Thursday, according to a report in The New York Times.

West is expected to attend a lunch with Kushner and then meet with President Donald Trump afterwards. A person familiar with the matter told the Times that West wanted to discuss job opportunities for former convicts as well as how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area where West is from.

Further details of the meetings were not reported.

On the most recent episode of SNL, cast member Pete Davidson criticized West, who wore a Make America Great Again hat during his speech, for his statements, saying, “Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass.” Davidson then put on a hat that read: “Make Kanye 2006 Again.”
