Kanye West flew to New York City to visit President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday. Reporters holed up outside the Trump Tower saw Kanye walking into the lobby and then escorted up to the penthouse to meet Trump.

After the surprising meeting, Donald Trump went down to see Kanye out, together with Ivanka. The group posed for pictures and talked to some of the reporters waiting outside.

Trump said he and Kanye West had been friends for a while and described their short meeting as a talk between friends. When asked what they talked about, Trump said, “Life. We talked life.”

On the other hand, Kanye was mum about the visit. He dodged questions from reporters asking what the visit was all about. He likewise ignored queries if this visit meant he would be performing at Trump’s inauguration.

It has been reported that the Trump inauguration committee has been rejected by A-list performers. Unlike during Obama’s inauguration several years ago when A-listers were ‘lining up’ to volunteer their services, the opposite is true this time. Top names in the industry are shutting their doors.

After his visit to the Trump Tower, Kanye West provided details of the meeting on Twitter.

“I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” Yeezy posted on Twitter. “These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”

“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” he added.

Kanye West then posted the hashtag “#2024”, seemingly suggesting he may run for office. He has previously said that he intends to run for the White House.  At his VMA speech last year, Kanye declared he would run for president in 2020.

The meeting with Trump is the latest surprising, if not bizarre, episode in Kanye West’s public life. It comes two weeks after the controversial rapper was hospitalized due to a ‘psychiatric emergency’.
