Kanye West to Visit Trump This Week to Discuss Prison Reform, Violence

Kanye West is taking a much-needed break from social media.

President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West were sitting down for lunch at the White House on Thursday to discuss prison reform as Trump seeks to use his celebrity roots to political advantage.

Kushner serves as a senior adviser to the president and has been working on overhauling the criminal justice system; one person briefed on the meeting said West wants to discuss job opportunities for former convicts.

The action follows months of West adopting the MAGA spirit, which culminated on "Saturday Night Live" recently where he delivered a pro-Trump speech on set, prompting boos from the cast and crew.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly ending their friendships with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. His wife, Kim Kardashian-West met with Trump in May to talk reform, and persuaded the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.

An insider said: "Kanye got to the point where he realised his rants were becoming unhealthy". She just wants him to focus on his family for a bit now. "I'm on them, they're great", Davidson said.

"West has previously announced his own plan to run for president in 2020, but has since tweeted "#2024", suggesting it is not clear whether he will challenge Mr Trump at the next election.

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West stand together in the lobby at Trump Tower in New York City, on December 13, 2016. "He's racist.'" said West, who is 41.

'They think Kanye is a disgrace, and is only doing this for attention, ' the source said.

"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".

Following the controversy, West deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
