Donald Trump had a lot of positive things to say about Lil Wayne, a day after it was revealed that the unexpected duo met up to discuss the White House's "Platinum Plan" for Black America.

In a press conference on Friday (Oct. 30), a reporter asked the President why he met up with the rapper. "Well, he wanted a meeting," Trump responded. "He’s a really nice guy. He’s really an activist, in a very positive way. And he asked for a meeting, and we had the meeting. And as you saw, the meeting went very well."

On Thursday, Lil Wayne tweeted a photo smiling alongside the President, writing "Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."

Earlier this month, the Trump administration announced its Black Economic Empowerment "Platinum Plan," with the help of Ice Cube's Contract With Black America. The “Platinum Plan” hopes to “increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion” by creating 500,000 black-owned businesses and 3 million new jobs for the black community, plus strengthening immigration and policing policies.
