WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump says he and musician Kanye West talked “life” in Trump Tower.
The two posed for photos after their meeting Tuesday.
Asked why the musician was visiting, Trump said the two were “just friends” and called West a “good man.”
The two did not answer questions on whether West would perform at Trump’s inauguration in January.
West stood silently next to Trump. Asked why he wasn’t speaking, West said: “I just want to take a picture right now.”
The musician entered the building shortly after 9 a.m. with a large entourage. West 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.
West did not stop to talk to reporters gathered in the lobby.
At a concert in November, West said he didn’t vote, but if he had he “would have voted for Trump.”
