Kanye West to visit Trump to discuss prison reform, Chicago violence

Following in the steps of his reality TV star wife-turned-activist Kim Kardashian West, rapper Kanye West will be meeting with President Trump and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner at the White House on Thursday. She went for meetings related to her goal of securing clemency for individuals facing life sentences from nonviolent drug crimes. The report indicates West is meeting with Kushner and Trump to discuss similar issues, as Kushner has been tasked with overseeing criminal justice reform for the White House.

West is planning to discuss the opening of employment opportunities for former prison convicts, a subject already being studied by the White House, according to The New York Times.

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West stand together in the lobby at Trump Tower in New York City, on December 13, 2016. In multiple tweets, he called Trump "my brother" and said the two share "dragon energy". We've been extremely happy with our relationship with Kanye West.

The confluence of the announcement of West's upcoming meeting with Trump and the Tuesday morning announcement of U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley's resignation instantly resulted in jokes and memes speculating that the rapper was replacing Haley.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied all of the allegations, including at a hearing featuring testimony from him and Ford last week . The vote - 51-49 in favour - was a test of support for the nominee who has faced sexual assault allegations from several women.

West has since apologized for his comments indicating that slavery was a choice.

"Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" he said, leaving Swift in tears.

"I wish I bullied you", he continued. West, who has faced criticism for his support of the president, previously met with Trump when he was president-elect before being sworn into office.

"We've been friends for a long time", Trump told reporters.
