Kanye West to visit White House for meeting with Donald Trump

Kanye West is following in wife Kim's footsteps

after getting an invite to see Donald Trump at

the White House.

The rapper is scheduled to have lunch with the

president and also meet his son-in-law Jared

Kushner, White House press secretary Sarah

Huckabee Sanders confirmed.

They will discuss manufacturing, prison reform,

gang violence and how to reduce violence in

Chicago, where West grew up.

The White House has not said when the visit will

take place.

It comes after West announced a name change

last month, saying he now wants to be known as

YE - a nickname he has used for many years and

the title of his last album .

Mr Trump recently tweeted praise for the

musician after he closed a Saturday Night Live

show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat

and delivered an unscripted pro-Trump message

after the credits rolled.


"If someone inspires me, and I connect with

them, I don't have to believe in all their policies,"

he said.

West, 41, deleted his social media accounts for

the third amid a backlash following the show.

His upcoming visit will not be the first time he

has met Mr Trump, having been pictured with the

then president-elect at Trump Tower in December

2016.

And his West Wing trip comes after wife Kim

Kardashian West met Mr Trump there in May.

The reality TV star successfully persuaded the

president to grant a pardon for a drug offender ,

and has met with senior aides regarding criminal

justice reform.
