The 39-year-old rapper requested a meeting with the president-elect and was seen entering Trump Tower with his entourage on Tuesday. Hope Hicks, Trump’s spokesman, confirmed that West was meeting with the president-elect.

“[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. (RELATED: Kanye West Spotted At Trump Tower)

“Just friends, just friends,” Trump said when asked why he met with West. “He’s a good man. Long time. Friends for a long time.”

When asked what the two discussed, Trump said, “Life. We discussed life.”

West left Trump Tower after about 15 minutes.
