“[Kanye] has had positive things to say about the president-elect,” Trump transition team communications director Jason Miller told the Daily Beast after the meeting.
Miller said Trump is interested in “putting together coalitions” and wants to “reach out to people both from traditional and nontraditional political viewpoints.”
“We’ve been friends for a long time,” Trump told reporters after the meeting.
