Kanye West is following in his wife Kim Kardashian’s footsteps! The rapper is set to visit the White House on Thursday, October 11.
Donald Trump’s Most Offensive and Outrageous Quotes
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed to the Associated Press on Tuesday, October 9, that West, 41, will have lunch with President Donald Trump and meet with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.
They are expected to discuss the resurgence of manufacturing in America, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in West’s hometown of Chicago.
The 21-time Grammy winner’s scheduled visit will follow Kardashian’s two trips to the White House. She met with the president, 72, on May 30 and successfully urged him to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother who had been in prison for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.
West has come under fire several times through the years for his vocal support of Trump. More recently, the “Gold Digger” rapper wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat during his September 29 appearance on Saturday Night Live, which ended with him delivering a pro-Trump speech after the credits rolled.
SNL cast members Pete Davidson and Kenan Thompson bashed the rant, with the latter saying on Late Night With Seth Meyers, “It’s hard to stand there and not be able to debate somebody who’s going so far against your personal opinion.”
