Kanye West Meets With Donald Trump and Twitter Is Going HAM

Is this a new bromance?

Update (12/12 4:47PM): Kanye took to Twitter to explain the importance of today’s surprise meeting with Trump. He also hints at postponing his campaign run for POTUS by posting the hashtag “#2024.” It’s not clear if he’s still running in 2020, but it seems he’s ready to dive into the political life. Read his tweets below.

Update (12/12 3:06PM): Kanye West met with Donald Trump to discuss becoming an “ambassador of sorts,” reports E! News. A source close to Kanye adds that Trump is interested in getting West involved in an “entrepreneurial leadership role.” As for how the meeting came about, the source states that Trump’s team reached out to West. “Trump thinks he’s a great role model when it comes to business,” the insider adds. The bromance thickens.

Kanye West just broke the Internet, but we’re not so sure it’s in a good way. That’s for our timelines to decide. Early Tuesday morning, Yeezy marched into Trump Tower for a face-to-face with the President-elect. According to TMZ, Kanye requested a 15-minute meeting with Donald Trump and the man set to be the leader of the free world agreed.

Footage of the two leaving their meeting and taking a few photos together for the press look nothing short of uncomfortable. It’s still unclear why the two met and what they discussed, but Trump does end up stating that, “We’ve been friends for a long time.” Whatever that means.

Of course, Twitter exploded when the news dropped of this new surprising bromance between Ye and Trump. Our timelines are now a war zone of memes and gifs once again. Check them out below.
