Kanye West will join President Trump at the White House on Thursday for a signing ceremony of the Music Modernization Act, a sweeping bill to reform music licensing and royalty payments long sought after by the industry and artists.
Kanye West's meeting with President Trump might be mocked by some, but the pairs relationship may have a positive impact on the music industry. Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously. "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", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters earlier this week.
In June, Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman for a first-time drug offense whose cause was taken up by celebrity Kanye West's wife, Kim Kardashian West. Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old from Tennessee, had served more than 20 years in prison on drug conspiracy and money laundering charges.
Kanye has drawn fire from other celebrities for his support of Trump, the former reality TV star now looking ahead to congressional elections on November 6 and his own re-election campaign in 2020.
"FEMA has gotten rave reviews", the president said.
President Trump gave an interview to Fox & Friends on Thursday, during which, he shrugged off the criticism he got last night for holding a campaign rally while the Southeastern U.S.is getting battered by Hurricane Michael. We're going to make certain categories tougher, when it comes to drug dealing and other things. "And it's also very costly". "I could see it".
