There is not a whole lot of details about what the pair discussed during the meeting, only that the Times asked Ye about it and he didn’t it. The report noted that West also talked about “abortion rates among Black women” and that he didn’t “reflexively support Democrats.”
West also reportedly confirmed the meeting took place when he tweeted, “I’m willing to do a live interview with the New York Time about my meeting with Jared where we discussed Dr. Claude Anderson’s book Powernomics.”
