Kanye West to Meet with President Trump at the White House
President Donald Trump will meet with rapper Kanye West in the White House on Oct. 11. The two will have lunch and discuss a number of issues pertinent to the black community, especially in Chicago, where West has an opportunity to offer a helping hand.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an Oct. 9 statement that “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.”
Trump has recently announced a move to reduce violent crime in Chicago, where 2,346 have been shot so far this year (through Oct. 8).
West grew up in Chicago and recently announced he will be moving back from Los Angeles.
