Why Did Kanye West Meet with Donald Trump? Sources Reveal Details

UPDATE: Kanye has revealed the reason he met with the President-elect.

Everyone is wondering why Kanye West had a meeting with Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday (December 13).

The 39-year-old rapper requested the 15 minute meeting, and they reportedly spoke about him having a role in the White House: “ambassador of sorts,” a source told E! News. The President-elect is reportedly interested in having Kanye in an “entrepreneurial leadership role.”

“Trump thinks he’s a great role model when it comes to business,” the source added.

TMZ reveals, however, that the meeting was not for a position in the administration, or about performing at the inauguration. Stay tuned for more information!

    lol “he’s a good role model for business”….the same guy who claims he’s 2 million in debt and asks Mark Zuckerberg for money….great role model lol.

    Can’t expect much from someone who lost a billion dollars in a year and who’s businesses filed for bankruptcy countless times. If he wasn’t born into massive wealth, Trump would have been a failure.

    WTF?? His business model consists of creating things no one wants to buy, and begging others for money. Ooh and he just got out of a psych hold.

    It’s certainly not a shocker to figure out where you receive your information that has very little to no basis in fact! You haven’t got a clue! It’s got to be a safe bet that you’re one of those millenials. Instead of making accusations I bet you can’t find one bankruptcy of President Donald Trump and post it!

    You’re kidding me, right? Here, let me just start you off, and then you can google them from there because you clearly haven’t done ANY research at all.

    Bankruptcy 1: Trump Taj Mahal, 1991

    Bankruptcy 2: Trump Plaza Hotel, 1992

    Bankruptcy 3: Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, 2004

    Bankruptcy 4: Trump Entertainment Resorts, 2009.

    Maybe do your research before you make yourself look like an idiot.

    Your generation always talks so much shit about millenials, even though you raised us.

    Those decrying Trump going to repeal the co-dependency do actually understand governmental policies? Kanye hold form…Hip hop audience social awareness not arrogance of gang society whom not representation of civil rights. Meeting didn’t pertain to social awareness Kanye interest gaining publicity enough diversity essential for independence forgotten lies. Darling Hillary contribute $25 billion HBCU and erase student debt? Lies!
