Kanye West's meeting with President Trump might be mocked by some, but the pairs relationship may have a positive impact on the music industry. Trump's daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner will also attend. "Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters earlier this week. Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously.
"Well if he doesn't then he gets overruled by me, because I make the decisions, he doesn't", Trump said.
"I like him a lot, he's been a friend of mine, I've known him for a long time", Trump said in a phone interview with Fox and Friends.
Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings. Asked if he would consider campaigning with the rapper, Trump said, "I could see it". Trump previously justified the rally by saying he can not disappoint the people who lined up to see him, and today, he stuck to his position by saying "I had very little heat other than the natural haters, which there are obviously some".
