White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about Kanye West’s recent “support” for President Trump.
She warned the media not to have a “meltdown” over the news.
Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering asked, “Rap superstar Kanye West has been in the news lately for supporting the president and expressing admiration for the president. I’m curious whether the president has reached out to Kanye West and whether he’d be willing to meet with him at the White House.”
“I don’t know of any conversations that they’ve had over the last week or so,” Sanders said. “I’ll keep you posted if that changes any time.”
The room then broke out in chatter.
“Sorry, I know they met during the transition,” Sanders said. “That’s the only meeting I’m aware of that’s taken place, or conversation. Before everybody has a meltdown and thinks that we had a meeting last week,” she added.
