Kanye West and Donald Trump meet, talk about ‘life’

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West posed for a picture in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York today.

NEW YORK » A newly blond Kanye West visited Donald Trump today, and Trump said later they talked about “life.”

West stood silently next to the president-elect for photos in the lobby of Trump Tower after their meeting. Asked why he wasn’t speaking, West said, “I just want to take a picture right now.”

Trump said he and West were “just friends” and called the musician a “good man.” He said they discussed “life.” The two did not answer questions about whether West would perform at the Inauguration.

West entered the building shortly after 9 a.m. with a large entourage. He was not accompanied by wife Kim Kardashian West.

The 39-year-old recently spent over a week in Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles for stress and exhaustion. Days before his hospitalization, he abruptly canceled his U.S. concert tour.

Last month during a concert in San Jose, California, West said he didn’t vote for president, but if he had, he would have cast a ballot for Trump. He also praised the president-elect’s “method of communication” as “very futuristic” and spoke about his plans to run for that office in 2020, saying that he will become “a different kind of president.”

Trump also was shown in a video for West’s single “Famous,” released last year. It also featured Rihanna, former President George W. Bush, Anna Wintour and Bill Cosby.

  • drumph loves celebrity and cozies up to so-called famous people. And he loves diversion so my question is what’s really going on while the media’s chasing this non-story?

  • Seems like an odd couple but yet meeting of the minds can happen. KW said he would’ve have voted for P.E. Trump if he did..but didn’t vote at all.
    Carly Fiorina came away with high praise and down-to-earth talk.
    Bill gates also met with The Donald and came away with praise and comparison to JFK.
    Look at the Stock Market wow..and Mark Cuban said it would crash tsk tsk…reminds me of someone else who predicted it would crash because of BREXIT.

    Can’t see hiLIARy doing any of what P.E. Trump is doing…P.E. Trump is doing good stuff…optimism is high.
