Yesterday (December 13), Kanye West met with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City.
Last month, before his recent hospitalisation, West voiced his support for Trump, saying that, had he voted, he would have voted for Trump. The comments were badly received by fans.
The rapper took to Twitter last night to reveal that he met with the President-elect to “discuss multicultural issues” which included “bullying, supporting teachers, modernising curriculums, and violence in Chicago”.
He added: “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”
West signed off with the hashtag 2024, suggesting that he may run for President himself if Trump serves two terms.
“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to him about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. And I think Kanye was a publicity stunt. I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump,” he said.
“I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country and I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people. And for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing…. Whatever was in his mind, I disagree with him.”
