Kanye West talks prison reform at White House
WASHINGTON—RECORDING artist and prominent Donald Trump supporter Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with the president, the White House said Tuesday.
West will also meet with presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner during the visit, press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago,” Sanders said.
Kushner has spearheaded the administration’s efforts to overhaul the criminal justice system, and Trump on Monday said he had instructed the Department of Justice to work with law enforcement in Chicago to “straighten out the terrible shooting wave” in West’s hometown. Neither the White House nor Justice Department elaborated on what that outreach would entail.
