Welcome to modern politics, where one of the American President Elect’s most pressing matters is to meet with Kanye West.
Yeezy was spotted entering Trump Tower shortly after 9AM this morning, reports the Daily Mail, and was due to hold a 15 minute meeting with Donald Trump.
And the reason – well basically Kanye West gets what Kanye West wants. He is reported to have requested the meeting, and Donald agreed.

And the pair faced the cameras together, explaining that they’ve been chums for quite some time…

Following Trump’s victory in the race for the White House, West told a concert audience in California:
If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted Trump…Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, ok? Let’s stop being distracted. It’s just a f***ing fact, we are in a racist country, period.
That’s the spirit of change America needs right now – shock horror that endorsement was allegedly met by boos from the California crowd.
West has been recovering from a nervous breakdown in recent weeks, but it is thought the meeting may also have been to sound the performer out to appear at Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
Who know’s though, Trump’s cabinet is definitely lacking in self-proclaimed rock icons…
