Kanye West Meets With Donald Trump at Trump Tower, Discusses 'Life' and Poses for Pics
By Antoinette Bueno
Kanye West and Donald Trump are getting friendly.
The 39-year-old rapper was spotted with the president-elect at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday morning, where the two posed for pictures. Last month, West told concertgoers during a stop on his now-canceled Saint Pablo Tour that he would have voted for Trump had he voted in this year's presidential election.
Still sporting his new blonde 'do, West walked out of the elevator with Trump, as the 70-year-old businessman sang his praises.
"Just friends, just friends, and he's a good man," Trump told reporters while pointing at West. "We've been friends for a long time."
Trump said the two discussed "life" during their meeting, as West remained silent by his side. Later, when West was pressed for a comment, the "Fade" rapper replied, "I just want to take a picture right now."
The two eventually exchanged goodbyes with a hug, with Trump telling West, "You take care of yourself. I'll see you soon."
Ivanka Trump was spotted in the background as West and Trump posed for photos, wearing a white dress. Kris Jenner's boyfriend, Corey Gamble, was also by West's side.
Leading up to his hospitalization, West went on a rant at the San Jose stop of his Saint Pablo tour, telling a booing crowd, "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump."
