Kanye West to Visit Trump This Week to Discuss Prison Reform, Violence

Rap megastar and outspoken Trump supporter Kanye West will get his dream dinner date on Thursday when he has lunch with the president at the White House, but how deep are Kanye's political ambitions? During the presidential transition, Trump memorably brought West in front of cameras in the Trump Tower lobby for an impromptu gaggle with reporters.

West's visit to the White House falls in line with Kushner's efforts at criminal justice reform. West wanted to discuss the availability of job opportunities for former convicts.

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.

As several people documented, the controversial rapper wore a Make America Great Again hat and gave a pro-Trump speech after asking the SNL cast to join him on stage.

As with Kanye West, his wife, Kim Kardashian, also met with Jared Kushner.

West was blasted by celebrities including Chris Evans and Whoopi Goldberg when he resumed the discussion the next day, tweeting a photo of himself again wearing his red baseball cap and suggested abolishing the 13th Amendment, which outlaws slavery.

"I am American, and I support and give my ideas and support and brilliance to whoever ends up in office", West said, reported Breitbart. I'm on them. There's nothing wrong with taking them.

"It's so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, 'How could you support Trump?" "If I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago". I support our president, bottom line, no matter who they are. "You know how wrong about politics you need to be for like me to notice?"

"Everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me, and then told me every time I said I like Trump, I couldn't say it out loud or my career would be over..."
