Kanye West met with Trump 'to discuss multicultural issues'

Kanye West has announced what he and president-elect Donald Trump spoke about Tuesday.

"I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," he tweeted.

"These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago."

West added, "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want to change."

He finished his comments with the hashtag - #2024.

The famous rapper has previously announced he would run for president in 2020.

His #2024 comment gives room for Trump presumably to serve a second term. West said during a concert in San Jose, California that if he had voted, he would've done so for Donald Trump.

"Life. We discussed life," Trump told a gaggle of reporters camped out in the lobby of the building where the future president has been conducting interviews and hosting meeting with future cabinet members.

"This is a good man," Trump said pointing to a blond West -- making his highest profile appearance since emerging from emergency care a week ago.

"We've been friends for a long time," Trump continued.

Reporters peppered the outspoken West with questions about his rumored plans of running for office in 2020.

"I just want to take a picture right now," West said.

West entered the building shortly after 9 a.m. 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 Center in Los Angeles for stress and exhaustion. Days before his hospitalization, he abruptly canceled his U.S. concert tour.

Trump also was shown in a video for West's single "Famous," released last year. It also featured Rihanna, former President George W. Bush, Anna Wintour and Bill Cosby.
