President Trump has a Thursday lunch date with Kanye West

Reporter ridicules Trump’s embrace of Kanye: ‘Laughable’ to treat him as an ambassador from the black community

Kanye West and President Trump's agenda for their Thursday sitdown will include signing new legislation that could potentially put more money in Kanye's pocket. The rapper visited with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower a month before Trump's inauguration. Brown, a civil rights leader, has met Trump previously.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump and his guests would discuss potential future clemencies for convicts along with "addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago" and efforts to create jobs for African-Americans.

A senior White House official told Politico that officials planned "to look into" Fox News deciding to cut away from presidential rallies, suggesting that Bill Shine, the White House communications director and former Fox News president, would get in touch with his former colleagues.


President Donald Trump on Wednesday tried to rewrite the history of his campaign rallies, during a late night interview with Fox News. We're going to make certain categories tougher, when it comes to drug dealing and other things. It would have been very unfair, I don't think really the heat was very hot. "And it's also very costly".

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. 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".
