It’s no secret that Kanye West has been a strong supporter of the Trump Government, and with wife Kim Kardashian meeting with the president several times, the Kardashian-West clan are fully invested in the cause. Yesterday, Yeezy made his way to the Oval Office to have lunch with the President, discussing everything from prison reform to his own fashion brand.
Accompanied by a pack of reporters, the pair sat down to talk with West once again singing praise for Trump. West pitched the use of hydrogen powered planes over Air Force 1, congratulated the president on his handling of North Korea and discouraged the idea that all black-Americans should vote democrats. Referring to his MAGA hat:
“When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman,” he told Trump. “That’s my favourite superhero. And you made a Superman cape for me. This hat, it gives me power.”

Prison reform was the main choice of topic for the afternoon, with White House Spokesman Hogan Gidley stating that Trump and his guests would discuss potential future clemencies for convicts along with “addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago” and efforts to create jobs for African-Americans.
“There are people in jail for really long terms,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “We do need reform. And that doesn’t mean easy. We’re going to make certain categories tougher, when it comes to drug dealing and other things. It’s very unfair to African-Americans it’s very unfair to everybody. And it’s also very costly.”
Wrapping up the meeting on Thursday, Trump showed his support for West’s presidency in 2024 and said West was “a smart cookie” and could “very well be” a future presidential candidate.
His strong support for the controversial Trump administration has not been without consequences. While Beyoncé and Jay-Z and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been on shaking ground for some time now, reports have surfaced with the Jay-Z clan completely “cutting ties” with couple. Radar Online, had learned that they are are “sick” of Donald Trump-supporter West’s political “bull***t.”
“They are outraged over Kanye’s recent political rants,” a source close to the “Irreplaceable” singer said.
We’re sure more controversy will follow. Stay tuned.
