Kanye West is scheduled to meet with Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, less than two weeks after the rapper wore a MAGA hat and went to a pro-Trump dog during his Saturday night live appearance.
the New York Times reports that West will meet for the first time with the principal advisor and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, before sitting down with the president. A representative of West confirmed the interim meeting to the newspaper.
As a tweet hinted at West's deleted Twitter, the rapper intends to discuss the availability of jobs for ex-convicts with Kushner, who has pushed for prison reform in the White House, as well as discuss with Trump how to take manufacturing jobs to West Chicago native, the New York Times Add.
West also previously expressed interest in taking Colin Kaepernick to the White House to meet with Trump, who has continually focused on the quarterback at rallies and on social media, but that is unlikely to happen.
Trump has routinely praised West for his support, which dates back to a Trump Tower meeting in November 2016 with the then president-elect.
"Thanks to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to say the TRUTH", Trump tweeted in August after West reiterated his support for Trump in Jimmy Kimmel live. "A new and excellent fact: African-American unemployment is the lowest recorded in the history of our country. Very honored by this. Thanks Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference! "
