“Just friends. Just friends—and he’s a good man,” Trump told reporters in the lobby, responding to questions about the purpose of their meeting. “We’ve been friends for a long time.”
“I just wanted to take a picture right now,” West said, when asked if he is considering performing at Trump’s inauguration or running for president in 2020.
“So long, man, you take care of yourself. I’ll see you soon,” Trump said to West as they shook hands and parted ways.
