Kanye West will meet Trump again on Thursday



Kanye West will meet Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday to discuss manufacturing jobs in Chicago and opportunities for ex-cons.

The rapper, who has faced criticism for his public support of the president, will meet Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner before having lunch with the president, the Washington Post reported.

A representative for West confirmed to the Times that the meeting was set to take place.

His wife, the reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, visited the White House in May to meet with Mr Trump and Mr Kushner to discuss prison reform.

That meeting resulted in the president granting clemency in the case of convicted drug dealer Alice Marie Johnson, for whom Kardashian West had been a prominent supporter.

West, 41, has deleted his social media accounts following a string of controversial stunts including wearing a Make America Great Again cap during an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

West was also booed while making a pro-Trump speech when the cameras stopped rolling in September.
