The rap star is scheduled to meet Thursday morning with President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then have lunch with Trump himself, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Tuesday.

The White House has not said when the visit will take place.

According to people familiar with the matter who spoke to the Times, West plans to talk with Kushner about increasing job opportunities for formerly incarcerated people.

Other topics of discussion will include prison reform, how to prevent gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, Sanders said.

Similar to what his wife Kim Kardashian did a few months back, Kanye is going to have a meeting on the criminal justice system.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY called the fight "a sorry epilogue to the brazen theft of Justice Scalia's seat". Murkowski bucked her party by voting "no" in a procedural vote to advance Kavanaugh's confirmation to the full Senate floor.

Just last week, Trump praised Kanye for his SNL performance after Kanye went on another pro-Trump rant after the show last week, saying he's "leading the charge" with his support. West donned a red "Make America Great Again" hat for much of his time as the musical guest on the September 29 season premiere.

[O] ne person briefed on the meeting said that Mr. Do you know how wrong about politics you have to be for, like, me to notice? But I don't want to hear Joey Chestnut's opinion on things that are not hot dog related.

In April, Mr West, who wishes to be referred to as Ye, released Ye vs The People, a track which expressed support for the USA president.

"They bullied me backstage. If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don't have to believe in all they policies".
