Kanye West is back in the news again. This time it’s not about what he’s said, tweeted, or done, but rather what he has plans to do. These plans are to meet Donald Trump. Turns out that Yeezy has plans to visit the President of the United States on Thursday, October 11th. This will not be their first meeting, as the two have previously met in 2016.
This past August, Kanye sat down with Jimmy Kimmel & had a bit to say about his relationship with the President. In the interview, he would go on to speak about his music, his clothing line, his fans, as well as how he feels about people being mad at him.
Turns out not much has changed since August. In the leadup to his upcoming meeting with President Trump, people are still mad at him. Recently, Kanye had attempted to set a meeting between the President & Former NFL Quarterback & Activist Collin Kaepernick. West had attempted to organize this meeting between the two, by the way of Ebro Darden.
Darden is a co-host over at Hot 97, which is a radio station in New York City, and one of the premier stations in the country. Kanye West had reached out to Ebro, in an attempt to get a phone call with Kaepernick. The New York DJ & Media Executive declined to assist Kanye in arranging the phone call. He stated that he “would not let Kanye and Trump use Kaepernick as a political pawn”. Good try Yeezy.
Regardless of how you feel about Ye’, or the POTUS, it doesn’t seem like things are changing between them anytime soon. Kanye is slated to meet the President on Thursday, October 11th. Be sure to stay tuned for more information.
