Kim Kardashian 'proud' of Kanye West as he sets off to meet President Trump
Kim Kardashian-West on Tuesday said that she is "proud" of her husband meeting with President Donald Trump this week, and is hopeful that the president will listen to Kanye West, according to reports.
Kim, while speaking to Extra TV at a Tiffany & Co. event in New York City, said that the meeting between the duo will be about the "city of Chicago and some exciting things that I feel like they have been planning, and I am really hopeful the President listens."
West is reportedly set to meet with Trump's son-in-law and senior White House aide Jared Kushner at the White House on Thursday before having lunch with the President, according to the New York Times. The singer reportedly intends to discuss job opportunities for former convicts and manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area, where he grew up.
When asked whether she is giving her husband some advice, Kim said: "I try to, I will try to help him communicate. I always say he isn't the best communicator, but he has the best heart. I know what he wants to accomplish… and I can't wait to see that happen."
The reality TV star also talked about her family moving to Chicago, saying: "I think so, we will have a few homes, we'll go back and forth, but I think that's happening."
PEOPLE had previously reported citing a source that West "has a tendency though to change his mind quickly, so Kim is just going along with his plans because it makes him happy. Next week, something else might make him happier."
West's meeting with the President comes days after he delivered a surprising pro-Trump speech while appearing as a guest on Saturday Night Live.
The singer was met with heavy backlash on social media, after which he shut down all his social media accounts. The Grammy winner — who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder — recently revealed that he is off his medication now.
"Kanye got to the point where he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy. This is why he deleted his account," a source told PEOPLE. "When he gets into these Twitter rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. It’s like an obsession and it actually affects his life. He knows it’s not healthy, so he wants to take things down a notch."
