Kanye won't be President in 2020, but here's the thing

KANYE West met with Donald Trump to discuss "multicultural issues".

In his first tweets since October, the 39-year-old rapper, who was recently hospitalised with psychosis caused by dehydration and sleep deprivation, revealed he met with the US president elect at Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday to discuss a number of issues.

He tweeted: "I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.

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

"I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change (sic)."

Kanye also went on to hint that he is considering running for president in 2024, by tweeting "#2024".

The star surprised fans at his concert in San Jose last month, when he insisted he would have voted for Trump if had cast a vote on November 8.

He explained: "I told y'all I didn't vote, right? But if I were to vote, I would have voted for Trump.

"I just said that I would have voted for Donald Trump and then I did a song and y'all sang it at the top of your lungs. That doesn't mean that you're a Trump supporter. That just means you OK with a celebrity having their own opinion. Or that someone else is OK to have their own opinion. That might not be your opinion but you can still like that person or still like that person's music."

And he previously insisted he was planning to run for US president in 2020.

He said: "I'm concerned about putting our concept of how to do the [president's] job in a new way and if no one will do it in that way, I will take position in 2020 and do it myself."
