What did Kanye West talk about in his secret meeting with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump?
The rapper had been camping with his family in Colorado when he had reportedly flown to Telluride in order to meet Kushner and his wife and first daughter Ivanka Trump
Independent presidential candidate Kanye West reportedly had a secret meeting with President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner last weekend.
The 'Stronger' rapper had been camping with his family — wife Kim Kardashian West and their four children in Colorado — when he had flown to Telluride in order to meet Kushner and his wife and first daughter Ivanka Trump, according to a New York Times report. It was also reported that Kushner and Ivanka had been traveling to Telluride that weekend. West had taken to Twitter to share, "I'm willing to do a live interview with the New York Time about my meeting with Jared where we discussed Dr Claude Anderson's book Powernomics."

West declined to go into details on his meeting with the first son-in-law in a follow-up interview but did "express anger about abortion rates among Black women" before saying that he "didn't reflexively support Democrats."
On August 5, Trump, while talking about West's 2020 effort, said, "I like him. He’s always been very nice to me." Trump was asked whether he was aware or involved in any way to get West on the ballot, Trump had revealed, "No, not at all. I get along with him very well. I like him. I like his wife."
West had done a tell-all interview with Forbes where he had announced that he was serious about running for president and was done supporting Trump. "I am taking the red hat off, with this interview," he proclaimed.
West's relationship with his wife Kim has been quite shaky recently ever since he announced that he would be running for president. We had earlier reported that West had shared personal details about their family at his first presidential rally at South Carolina, followed by days of controversial and somewhat alarming posts on his Twitter.
He shocked his wife and her family when he revealed that they once considered aborting their first child, North West, all the while weeping hysterically. He also accused momager Kris Jenner of being a "White supremacist" and called her "Kris Jong-Un" on Twitter.
The rapper had also refused to take any of his wife's calls as he stayed at his Wyoming ranch away from his family. A source shared, "Kanye has a compound at the ranch in Wyoming. He’s had a lot of building work going on there and a lot of it is geared towards security. There’s an underground bunker, a panic room originally built for the family to go to in an emergency, stocked up with food. Kanye’s surrounded himself with a small group of people he trusts, and he doesn’t trust Kim or her family."
West seems to have made amends with his wife Kim and had taken to social media to publicly apologize to her. "I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim, I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me," West had said.
