Kanye West to Visit With President Trump at White House on Thursday

Just one week after Kanye West appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in a “Make America Great Again” hat, the rapper is headed to the White House for a meeting with senior adviser Jared Kushner and lunch with President Trump, according to multiple sources.

West first met with Trump in New York following then-President-elect Trump’s stunning 2016 victory. His wife, Kim Kardashian, visited the White House last month to discuss prison reform and sentencing. West’s meeting with Kushner is also likely to focus on that topic.

The White House did release some information about the meeting.

West will also meet with presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner during the visit, press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

“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,” Sanders said.

Kushner has spearheaded the administration’s efforts overhaul the criminal justice system, and Trump on Monday said he had instructed the Department of Justice to work with law enforcement in Chicago to “straighten out the terrible shooting wave” in West’s hometown. Neither the White House nor Justice Department elaborated on what that outreach would entail.

Despite delivering a pro-Trump speech on stage at “Saturday Night Live,” NBC did not carry the remarks on the late-night program. West has faced criticism for his support for Trump.
