The billionaire rapper had been camping with his family, together with superstar wife Kim Kardashian West and their 4 kids, in Colorado, when he flew out to Telluride to meet Kushner and his wife, senior adviser and daughter of the president, Ivanka Trump, according to the New York Times. Since it’s the Times I had to get corroboration, because you can’t really trust anything that comes from that liberal rag anymore. The best use for it is found at the bottom of a dirty birdcage.
The Times reported that Kushner and Ivanka had been traveling in Telluride that weekend. The sneaker mogul’s wife was not with him at the meeting.
Reached by the Times for comment on his meeting with Kushner, the rap superstar took to social media.
“I’m willing to do a live interview with the New York Time [sic] about my meeting with Jared,” he tweeted, adding that they discussed “PowerNomics,” a book about black empowerment by Dr. Claude Anderson.

The Times said that West would not elaborate on the meeting in a follow-up phone interview, but did “express anger about abortion rates among Black women” before saying he “didn’t reflexively support Democrats.”
President Donald Trump denied any connection to the meeting. During a White House presser he said, “I like him. He’s always been very nice to me.”
When asked if he was aware of or concerned in any effort to get West on the ballot, Trump said he didn’t know anything about it, saying simply, “No, not at all.
“I get along with him very well. I like him. I like his wife,” he added.
The rapper launched his independent presidential campaign over the Fourth of July weekend under the “Birthday Party” platform.
Since then, the candidate has has trouble getting ballot state by state ballot access, since he doesn’t have a traditional election campaign infrastructure.
West has gotten on ballots in the states of Colorado, Oklahoma and Vermont.
