Jared Kushner confirmed Thursday that he has spoken with rapper Kanye West several times, along with other members of the billionaire long-shot presidential campaign.
‘Kanye’s been a friend of mine for — I’ve known him for about 10 years,’ the president’s senior adviser said during a White House press briefing.
‘There’s a lot of issues that the president has championed that he admires,’ Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law, said of the rapper and aspiring president.
West announced in July that he is planning on taking on Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in November – and recent reports reveal that many GOP operatives have been making efforts to get him on the ballot in certain states.
This has prompted speculation that Republican may be launching an effort to hurt presumptive Biden’s chances by siphoning off votes from Biden to West.
‘We both happened to be in Colorado, and we got together and we had a great discussion about a lot of things,’ Kushner said of one of their meetings. ‘He has some great ideas for what he’d like to see happen in the country and that’s why he has the candidacy that he’s been doing.’
Kushner refused to say if he had discussed the presidential campaign in general, but said they ‘had a general discussion more about policy.’
