Kanye West returned to social media for the first time since being admitted to hospital to talk about his meeting with Donald Trump.
Kanye tweeted about meeting Trump to “discuss multicultural issues” that included “bullying, supporting teachers, modernising curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”
Mr Trump said after the meeting that he and Kanye were “just friends” and called the musician a “good man”. He said they discussed “life”. The two did not answer questions about whether Kanye would perform at the inauguration.
The singer stood silently next to the president-elect for photos in the lobby of Trump Tower after their meeting. Asked why he wasn’t speaking, Kanye said: “I just want to take a picture right now.”
Kanye entered the building shortly after 9am with a large entourage. He was not accompanied by wife Kim Kardashian West.
The 39-year-old recently spent over a week in Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles for stress and exhaustion. Days before, he abruptly cancelled his US concert tour.
Last month during a concert in San Jose, California, Kanye said he didn’t vote for president, but if he had, he would have cast a ballot for Trump.
He also praised the president-elect’s “method of communication” as “very futuristic” and spoke about his plans to run for that office, saying that he will become “a different kind of president”.
Trump also was shown in a video for Kanye’s single Famous, released last year. It also featured Rihanna, former president George W Bush, Anna Wintour and Bill Cosby.
