9:45 AM PT — Family sources tell us Kanye took the meeting with Kushner without Kim’s knowledge.
Kanye West met with President Trump‘s son-in-law and White House staffer, Jared Kushner, last week — the strongest indication yet Trump’s administration might be involved in his campaign.
Ye had a private face-to-face with Kushner, a Trump cabinet member, over the weekend in Colorado, where Kanye was vacationing with Kim and the kids following their Caribbean trip … this according to the NYT.
They report Ivanka was traveling with Jared too, and that Ye flew to Telluride to touch base with them … sans Kim. The details of the meeting are scant, but the Times says when they asked Ye about it … he didn’t deny chatting, only saying their discussion was about Black empowerment.
He also copped to the meeting publicly on Twitter, writing … “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.”
Of course, it’s eyebrow-raising, at minimum, that a Trump aide — his own family member, no less — is meeting with Ye at a time of heightened scrutiny around his campaign … which many people believe is simply a Trump-engineered spoiler attempt to ruin Joe Biden‘s chances.
Remember, another Trump crony, Rudy Giuliani, told TMZ over the weekend he thinks Kanye is still a secret supporter of 45 — implying they’re in on this together.
