Kanye West Breaks Social Media Silence to Explain Donald Trump Meeting

It's been nearly two months since the Twitter world heard from Kanye West, but after he caused a media frenzy by showing up to Trump Tower for a meeting with Donald Trump on Tuesday morning (Dec. 13), the rapper came out of social-media hiding to provide a little clarity on his meeting with the U.S. president-elect.

"I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," West tweeted hours after leaving Trump Tower. He added, "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change."


Along with his explanation, West hinted that his time with Trump may have convinced him that he needs a little more time to prepare to run for Oval Office.


West's visit with Trump took place just a few weeks after he was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation. While the Life of Pablo rapper didn't address his condition in his series of tweets, his resurgence both on social media and the public eye are certainly promising.
