Kanye West met with President-elect Donald Trump earlier this morning at Trump Tower. According to Trump, the two have been friends “a long time.”
Why are Trump and Kanye meeting? We don’t know.
What we do know, however, is that Trump has a really lame entertainment lineup for his upcoming inauguration, and there is a large possibility that this meeting was made to recruit Kanye. Just speculation, of course, but after seeing his list of entertainers, why else would these two public figures choose to randomly hangout at Trump’s hotel?
So far, the list of entertainers for Trump’s Jan 20 inauguration includes Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and possibly Garth Brooks. Trump’s inauguration committee are apparently so desperate to improve their entertainment lineup that Trump is ready to offer money to performers, which would break tradition.
