President-Elect Donald Trump Met With 'Life of Pablo' Rapper Kanye West: What Did They Talk About?
When two polarizing figures come across each other, they aren't necessarily bound to collide and repel each other. As it turns out, the pair could get along really well.
The U.S. president-elect Donald Trump has recently met with "Life of Pablo" rapper Kanye West on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at the Trump Tower located in Manhattan, New York City. And, while the two were mum on the details of what they discussed when pressed by some reporters in the lobby of the building after their brief meeting, West has somehow spilt the beans in a series of tweets later in the day.
