There have been a number of prominent individuals who have met with the President-elect at the Trump Tower in New York City who had certainly not been expected to be spotted at the Transition Team Headquarters. Outspoken “NeverTrumper” Mitt Romney, former Vice President under the Clinton Administration Al Gore, and numerous others have shocked many with their appearances meeting with the next Commander in Chief.
Now it appears perhaps the most surprising meeting took place this morning. Donald Trump met with rapper Kanye West, weeks after West said in concert that he did not vote, but if he had he would have voted for the Republican Trump.
He was spotted at the Trump tower and it is not exactly clear what their meeting was about. Speculation has been substantial across social media and some have said they expect West to perform at the Inauguration, although with the style of West’s music this would seem to be doubtful.
Responses on Twitter have varied and some have provided a very interesting take on the latest surprise in this insane election season. Tweets have ranged from speaking of the ongoing destruction of Aleppo, playing off of the allegations regarding Russia’s involvement in the election, and numerous other ongoing events.
Trump has no time/interest for Daily Presidential Intel Briefing. But has time to meet w/Kanye West. Like I said, u can’t make this crap up. https://t.co/DnuITXbV3y
