Trump to Meet with Kanye West, Discuss Gang Violence, Prison Reform

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump will meet later this week with rapper Kanye West to discuss the prevention of gang violence and reform of the US penitentiary system, among other issues, the White House said Tuesday.

“Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump...Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

During his visit to the presidential mansion, the singer will also meet with the president’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, the White House said.

Though at first no date was given for the meeting, the White House later said that West and Trump will get together this Thursday.

In recent months the famous singer has praised Trump, a gesture that did not go unnoticed by the president, who did not hesitate to thank Kanye and return the sign of affection.

West, who came to speak of Trump as “my brother,” has repeatedly defended the president, an attitude that did not always sit well with his fans.

Trump welcomed West’s wife and television star Kim Kardashian last May to the Oval Office of the White House to discuss prisons and pardons.
