President Trump Will Have Lunch With Kanye West This Week

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the meeting on Monday, saying that West will meet with Trump as well as senior adviser Jared Kushner.

Kanye West's pro-President Donald Trump rant continues to prompt ill reactions from celebrities. She went for meetings related to her goal of securing clemency for individuals facing life sentences from nonviolent drug crimes.

The reason has to do with West's public support of President Donald Trump and Kardashian's visit to the Oval Office earlier this year.

Their conversation on Tuesday's show quickly diverted from the topics West intends to discuss with the president (manufacturing, prison reform, gang violence, to name a few) to discussing how West suffers from mental illness, bipolar disorder, and a family who can't convince him he has a problem.

West's first meeting, before he sees Trump, will be with Kushner.

West recently said he hopes to introduce Trump to Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback at the center of the National Anthem kneeling protest controversy in the National Football League.

West later tweeted about his plans.

"I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon".

West caused a stir after the season premiere of "SNL" on September 30 when he launched into a pro-Trump monologue while wearing a red "Make America great again" cap at the end of the show. The sports apparel giant's head has shared his support for Yeezy despite mixed social media feelings toward the hip-hop star.

But it got worse when Kim visited to the White House to discuss prison reform in May.

West sat down with TMZ's Harvey Levin a few days later on October 3, pushing back after Levin urged him to stop wearing the so-called "MAGA" hat.

Beyonce, 37, and Jay, 48, are "sick" of all the positive things West has said about Trump. They bully me. They bullied me backstage.
