On Wednesday, the rapper tweeted a photo of his autographed copy of Trump's Time magazine cover declaring the controversial businessman 2016's "Person of the Year," a day after the pair's surprise meeting at Trump Tower in New York City.
"To Kanye, you are a great friend," Trump wrote to West, underlining the word great. "Thanks."
"These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago," West tweeted on Tuesday. "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change."
On Tuesday, Trump continually referred to West as a friend as the two walked out of an elevator together. "Just friends, just friends, and he's a good man," Trump told reporters while pointing at the GRAMMY-winning artist. "We've been friends for a long time."
Last month, West told the audience at his Saint Pablo tour stop in San Jose, California, that he would have voted for 70-year-old Trump had he voted in this year's election. "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted on Trump," he told the audience, who then began to boo.
