Kanye West May Be Given A Role In Trump Administration

Rapper Kanye West met with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City on Dec. 13. Initially, it was reported to simply be a social meeting, but now it appears that the singer may be under consideration to join Trump's administration.

Trump spoke to West about the singer potentially becoming an "ambassador of sorts" in an "entrepreneurial leadership role," according to The Hill.

West and Trump posed for photographers following their brief meeting. Trump told reporters when asked about the purpose of the meeting, "Friends, just friends. He's a good man. Long time. Friends for a long time," according to Reuters.

At a November concert, West told his crowd that he did not vote in the presidential election, but that if he had, he would have voted for Trump.

"I said something that was kind of politically correct," West told the crowd at his show in San Jose, California. "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? What I didn't tell you ... If I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump."
