Kanye West and Donald Trump

According to the New York Times, the rapper has bagged a meeting with Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, on Thursday.

Kanye West is to meet US President Donald Trump on Thursday, the White House has confirmed. "And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over", West said during a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel. Kushner has made criminal justice reform a key priority, while Trump has long promised to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, and touts employment numbers as proof of his success. West wanted to discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts.

Kanye West is coming to the White House.

West ruffled feathers when he delivered a pro-Trump rant in front of a hyper-liberal crowd at the "Saturday Night Live" premiere earlier this month.

Mr West, who is married to Kim Kardashian, wore a hat with Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again" during his performance on the U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago.

Kanye West will reportedly meet Donald Trump at the White House.

West's wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian has met with Trump twice to plead for release of prisoners and discuss prison reform efforts. West donned a red "Make America Great Again" hat for much of his time as the musical guest on the September 29 season premiere. "He's racist", said West.

"I've been calling Colin this morning, reaching him, so I can bring Colin to the White House and we can remove that s- of b- statement and we can be on the same page", the rapper said. I'm on them. There's nothing wrong with taking them. You heard 'em, they scream at me, they bully me.

West's speech was eviscerated by SNL's Pete Davidson who called it "one of the worst, most awkward things I've ever seen here", and mocked Kanye's mental health.
