The post came just a few hours after West's wife, Kim Kardashian, opened up about his controversial meeting with President Donald Trump. The 38-year-old reality star -- who was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election -- discussed West's recent visit with Trump during an interview with Van Jones at Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit on Wednesday.
She said: "I think it gets really misconstrued. He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he’s the same person and friendly with him now. I could also co-exist with someone and still have different political views."

West's meeting with the President sparked controversy when the rapper indulged in a bizarre rant exclaiming kids should not attend school and something about liberals distracting black people by focusing on racism. The focus of the meeting shifted towards West's 10-minute rant at the White House. The meeting was criticized for the President's initiative to bring in a popular black musician, instead of an educated representative of the society, to speak about the community as a whole.
