President Trump, Kanye West

Kanye West is following in his wife Kim Kardashian's footsteps -- straight to the White House to discuss prison reform and inner city jobs with President Donald Trump.

Kardashian, 37, was the first member of the infamous Kardashian clan to visit the White House to meet with the embattled American president earlier this year.

Now Kanye West, 41, is reportedly preparing to meet with President Trump at the White House on Thursday, Oct. 11, according to The New York Times, via WENN.com.

The "Life of Pablo" rapper will attend a luncheon with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner at the presidential residence in the White House, before meeting with the mogul-turned-POTUS in the Oval Office.

"Mr. Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to Mr. Trump, has been focused on overhauling the criminal justice system, and one person briefed on the meeting said that Mr. West wanted to discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts," the New York Times wrote.

"He also hopes to discuss with Mr. Trump how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area, where Mr. West grew up and recently [returned], according to the person briefed on the meeting."

It's not the first time Kanye has met with Trump during his presidency. The rap musician previously showed his support for the tycoon at Trump Tower in New York shortly after Trump was elected president in 2016.

The reported meeting between Kanye and Trump comes after the rapper's emotional speech in support of the president during an appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend.

Kanye also made several controversial remarks about slavery, and shared a picture of himself wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with Trump's controversial "Make America Great Again" slogan on Twitter. He tweeted: "We build factories here in America to create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment... Message sent with love."

His tweets were not well received by the public or celebrities, and Kanye deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Saturday.

Kanye currently lives in Chicago where he is raising his 2-year-old son, Saint West and working on new music with his close friend Chance the Rapper.

    Poopity poopity scoopity doo doo.

    Thats what I see in this picture.

  • therealashland

    I thought he said he was out of the sunken place, Well, I guess Trump can have Kanye and Ben Carson cause we the people don't want neither of those house negro's stuck in the sunken place

  • therealashland

    I am at work, stop being funny... I hollered cause that video popped in my head

  • sunni_daze

    He just wants attention andwe need not give him any at all.

  • Miss Thang

    What Kanye should be discussing is the mental health crisis in this country, since both he and the president are prime examples of it.

  • Mielle Downey

    I'm so tired of this man. His wife and him are such attention slores. Like what have you done for the black community lately male version of omarosa? and don't @ me with the hypocrisy of his wife's family and thier find a black person as a hobby and look at me stunts..

  • Renee26

    So the POTUS needs an unstable celeb to tell him there's an issue with recidivism that could be helped by more corporations hiring felons???

    Um isn't it already illegal to discriminate against people with criminal backgrounds but yet and still HR depts still do it?? What does he expect Dump to do, call his friends and tell them to seek out and hire felons??

    Yeah right this is another photo op for these narcissists

  • hi-liter

    This is such Bullshit. Dump is playing his insane ass like a fiddle. Since Ye caped for him on SNL, he gets to go to the WH for a field trip.

    Nikki Haley just resigned as U.N Ambassador.
    Her actual departure date is uncertain.

  • ohdearme

    Kanye just wants to belong, to be seen as important, with anyone regardless of what their stance is. Trump could look him in the eye and state, "you know I don't care for blacks" and Kanye would nod and agree answering that he's going to help improve relations. Not a soul is fooled by these two and their narcissistic games!

  • hi-liter

    I saw that, but my question is Why? She didn't give an explanation.

  • ohdearme

    It's never been illegal to deny employment to felons. Criminal acts are not "protected", if you committed certain crimes you can try and get the case expunged then you're good, otherwise no.

  • Decked Out

    Well the MEDIA constantly REPORTS what Koonye is doing with The Dump. Again, what is REALLY going on because these are just Smoke Screens....for some SERIOUS shyt going on.

  • stevetheque

    Two chumps sharing lunch!! Fuckem both!! Capt. Bone Spurs and Koonye the champion of the 14th amendment. What can possibly go wrong?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!

  • hi-liter

    Maybe Ye can ask Dump to write a letter and ask that chicken patties not be thrown at Bill Cosby while he's doing his time.

  • stevetheque

    We're finally getting those reparations!! Free Yeezys for all!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I used to like Kanye's music but I never really followed him that closely. Is he really a genius like folks say?? All I ever here is how brilliant he is but all I ever see is a jackass...

  • hi-liter

    NOTHIN brilliant about him. Absolutely nothin.

  • stevetheque

    Breaking news!! There has been an amendment to the reparations accord, A 2 piece snack from popeyes has been ratified!!

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I’m tired of Kanye ? he needs to fade away

  • hi-liter

  • stevetheque

    Lololol

  • hottlanta

    Koonya going 2 the White House while Melania is doing a tour in Africa n gonna do a sit down live talking interview this Friday. Why she gotta go 2 Africa 2 do an interview. The internet was lit when they said she was dressed like Michael Jackson in his smooth criminal video. Cant wait for her 2 speak one of her 5 languages.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Nobody that I personally KNOW even likes Kanye anymore. Not anyone. Who CARES.

  • Renee26

    The EEOC does not allow companies to have blanket policies in place that state they do not hire felons... that can lead to disparate impact

  • hottlanta

    She said lm getting the hell outta here why my name is still good.

  • Renee26

    Wearing her hat that's symbolic of colonization... She needs to fire her stylist ASAP... They are very insensitive when it comes time to dress her to go on missions.... That damn I don't care jacket at the border...the 6 inch heels during the hurricane SMH geesh

  • Renee26

    Look there're Uncle Fester and Cousin It.

  • ohdearme

    You need to look up those EEOC rules again, I own my company and I'm perfectly within my right NOT to hire a felon! Performing a legal background check BEFORE scheduling an interview is perfect.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Someone posited that Lindsay Graham will replace Sessions as AG and Haley will replace Lindsey Graham in the U.S. Senate.

  • Kimocha

  • stevetheque

    Breaking news!! There has been an amendment to the reparations accord, A 2 piece snack from popeyes has been ratified!!

  • Scromes1212

    Wish he would have been able to convince Kap to go. That would have been a interesting situation. They probably could have made some positive changes with all 3 of them together. Hopefully Ye is going up there with a plan. He has built up some political capital

  • Quitedeliteful

    I saw this!! They ripped Kanye a new one!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Abel Ervin

    Why is this news at all, two of the dumbest MTFS ever, Kanye is a social media attention whore, the 2018 steppin fetchit

  • TMW

    And he told no lies. Zero.

  • hottlanta

    He trying 2 get Omarosa job or dump got him coming all the time for black crowd control. Those pictures from the White House r pretty white. Looks like an ad for white paint from home depot.

  • Scromes1212

    If being a jackass disqualifies you from being a genius then it wouldn't be very many geniuses throughout history lol this generation can only accept your negative traits if they think your on there side. Opinions have become so polarizing it can tear down anything good you ever did.

  • Marlika

    I hope these two swallow their own tongue me choke.?????

  • 5000BlinK

    Hey ya'll!
    I think it's important for somebody ANYBODY of color to at least be at the table to have a discussion about Prison reform when it comes to Minorities and low income individuals. If Kim and Kanye house to do this with their time (along with money, and the influence that they have over the youth) them I'm so down with the shyt. I support it....I believe we have to have some representation at that table when it comes to prison reform and being able to work after having felony convictions
    Miss yall????

  • Dun Dilly

    That's a pretty good power move by Ye. Most artists don't even meet with the MAYORS of their home cities. If you gonna CLOUT chase, go for the throne of the free world. Ye for the win.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Wouldn’t you love hearing this conversation. A bipolar nutball and a paranoid scizophrenic nutball. It has to be BIZARRE!!! BOTH NARCISSISTS ??

  • RespectSelf

    This this first time I seen a pic where that blonde looked ok on him

  • pecancandy

    I keep telling y’all if Kanye psychiatrist don’t prescribe the right cocktail of meds......this gone turn out real bad.

  • Quitedeliteful

    opinions have become so polarizing it can tear down anything good you ever did.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Very true... but is he really a genius like people say?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope it's the two-piece with the gold flakes!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Renee26

    Damn... Sit down Bill!! ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I am so sick and tied of Kim Kardashian Huzbin. Yea,I said "Huzbin" because I am solely convince that "Kanye" died along with Ms.Donda West....Who is that crazy asz imposter?

  • hottlanta

    Dont fyck with my church's wangs n we r good.

  • Renee26

    You don't have a blanket statement written in a policy say that do you?? Of course it's legal to do background checks... I never said it wasn't.

    I don't need to look up a damn thing cause you're reaching just for the sake of disagreeing with my comment. Yet you also support what I'm saying about companies refusing to hire felons and the end result leading to acts of recidivism due to a lack of decent unemployment opportunities for former felons.

  • hottlanta

    Miss u 2 lady. Ain't nobody trying 2 have a seat at the table just 2 take a photo and just 2 fill up his photo album from home goods.

  • ohdearme

    Wow why so angry? No I don't support your theory that it's discriminatory for a company to not hire a felon. Have a nice day :0

  • Faithz

    Best describe the both of them clowns, thanks.

  • Faithz

    Kanye is the only black man Trump has to talk to
    are not?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuuut???? You don't want a lil gold dust sprinkled on them wangs?!? I betcha it taste better than hot sauce!

  • Elevated Soul

    Good for Ye.....I know that Blacks that happen to be Republican are meeting with President Trump, while Black Democrats refuse to do so which means they aren't trying to get anything done for Black people because Democratic elite and their puppets most definitely don't do policy with Black Democrats.

    I recall when Obama was in office and he had his pet (Sharpton) around to appease Black Democrats who are impressed with that sort of symbolism but not once did that permed out Toby make any demands of Obama but he would be the first to criticize Ye for meeting with President Trump.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I congratulate him on that. We need more advocates.

  • Renee26

    Not angry at all just refusing to go back and forth over things I didn't say

  • Miss Thang

    stfu

  • What???

    Hit dogs holler.

  • Karen Brady

    In that order (mama dee voice ya'll)

  • Karen Brady

  • SumthinSweeter

  • Mary

    He probably doesn't have Kap's number. I have more faith in Kap - hopefully he would not meet with two idiots.

  • hottlanta

    Read 2day that ford fixing 2 lay off people bcas his wonderful trade policies n tarriff s cost Ford 1 billion dollars.

  • Scromes1212

    No matter what you think about them they are in powerful positions and Kap could actually make progress on some of the things he is protesting by taking a meeting with Trump.

  • Li-Wright

    "I never voted in my life" Kanye....yeh.

  • Li-Wright

    You mean "I never voted in my life"?
