The Internet is exploding after Kanye West and Donald Trump’s meet-up in New York City, and fans of both the rapper AND the president-elect have made it clear they’re not happy about this unlikely friendship. See their reactions here!
Kanye West, 39, has been open about his support for Donald Trump, 70, but no one expected that the two would actually hold a meeting together! That’s just what went down on Dec. 13, though, as Ye joined the president-elect at Trump Tower for a 15-minute meeting.
Once photos and videos surfaced of the two coming down the building’s elevators together, fans went into a frenzy on Twitter, and it doesn’t seem like there’s support from either side for this relationship. Trump supporters took to their social media accounts to bash the rapper, while ‘Ye’s followers slammed him for spending time with our future president. Check out some of the tweets right here:
Kanye West should eat a Snickers®. He's not himself right now.

Kanye West is just taking notes on how to troll his way to success. Hes already been doing it, Trump just does it better.

Cameras caught Donald and Kanye after their meeting, with the former explaining that the two have been friends for “a long time,” and that they were simply discussing “life” behind closed doors. However, the timing is definitely interesting: It was just last month that Kanye went on a long-winded concert rant about why he would’ve chosen Trump if he voted in the elction, despite Kim Kardashian, 36, and her family openly supporting Hillary Clinton, 69.
Kanye was unexpectedly photographed in New York City on Dec. 12, just days after he was released from the hospital following an 8-day stay. He reportedly jetted to the Big Apple to find a psychiatrist on the east coast, according to TMZ, but clearly, he had other very BIG plans for his time spent in Manhattan. Now, fans are wondering if this means he’ll perform at Trump’s inauguration — and what it means for the possibility of him running for president in 2020! Stay tuned…
