Mr. West didn't dismiss a possible presidential run of his own, but said he'd only consider it "after 2024", or after two full terms of a Trump presidency.
West spoke about American industry and the need to bring back jobs at one point, while wearing a pair of $295 boots from his Yeezy line that are made in China and Italy. Kanye proceeded to go on a "10-minute soliloquy" about his bio-polar disorder, to which Trump responded, "I tell you what that was pretty impressive..."

"I love this guy right here".

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the U.S. population. Mr. Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to Mr. Trump, has been focused on overhauling the criminal justice system, and one person briefed on the meeting said that Mr. It's safe to say T.I. won't be tending shop with Kanye West anytime soon.
