Kanye West met with president-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday morning. The reason for Kanye West’s visit with Trump remained unclear until West took to Twitter to explain why he called for a meeting with  the president elect.  Prior to the visit, West had been hospitalized and was recovering from exhaustion.  And just a few weeks ago, during one of his concerts, Kanye West disappointed his fans when he announced his support for Donald Trump.

“Yeah, I’m taking his lead,” West said.

The N.Y. Times reports that Hope Hicks, Mr. Trump’s spokeswoman, said in an email that Mr. West had requested the meeting.

“The meeting was requested by Kanye and we were delighted to host him,” Ms. Hicks wrote, adding, “They had a very positive and productive conversation.”

“We’ve been friends for a long time,” Mr. Trump told reporters. Asked what he and Mr. West talked about, he responded: “Life. We discussed life.”

Initially, Mr. West didn’t make a statement regarding the meeting.   However,  he took to Twitter afterwards to tweet:   ” I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.  These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.  I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”
