A source tells ET that Vogue magazine's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, met with Trump for half an hour to discuss a variety of topics. While Wintour has been a longtime friend to West, she was also an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton when she campaigned against Trump in the most recent presidential election, as well as the Obamas.
With regard to West's appearance at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday morning, a source close to the 39-year-old rapper tells ET that the visit with the president-elect was "a general meeting without any agenda."
A spokesperson for Trump also tells ET that it was West's team that requested the meeting.
Still sporting his new blond 'do, West was later spotted stepping 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 the music artist. "We've been friends for a long time."
Trump shared that the two discussed "life" during their meeting, as West stood quietly by his side. When later pressed for a comment, West replied, "I just want to take a picture right now."
Trump's daughter, Ivanka, was also on hand during the photo op, as well as Kris Jenner's boyfriend, Corey Gamble, who came with West to the meeting.
West's visit to Trump Tower marks one of his first public appearances since he was released from UCLA Medical Center on Nov. 30, after a nine-day hospitalization that one source told ET was due to a "mental breakdown,"while another attributed it to sleep deprivation and exhaustion.
Prior 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."
Interestingly enough, his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton, and West himself also donated $2,700 to "Hillary for America" in July 2015, as well as $15,000 to the Democratic National Committee in October 2014.
