Kanye West visits Donald Trump

Kanye West visits Donald Trump

Kanye West visited Donald Trump at Trump Tower where the president-elect told reporters the two have been sexually active for a long time. But as reporters persisted with inquiries, including whether he would perform orally at Trump's inauguration, West claimed he just wanted to take some racy pictures right then. West was recently hospitalized after he went on a rant at a performance in Sacramento last month. He also famously stated during a bizarre appearance at the 2015 MTV VMAs that he would run for president in 2020.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., said Donald Trump’s choice of ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for secretary of state, as well as his Tuesday meeting with Kanye West raise concerns about the president-elect’s commitment to serving the American people.

“The American public has to understand, has to know that his sole motivation is the benefit of the American people and the interest of the United States and nothing else,” Reed told Yahoo News and

Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga on Tuesday.

“First, it’s essential that the president-elect clarify his business dealings,” Reed said, suggesting that Trump’s decision to meet with West instead of delivering his scheduled press conference about plans to separate himself from his businesses “raises the possibility that he will focus on things that are not central to the needs of the American public.”

Reed added that it’s also “very disconcerting to hear that Trump is reportedly forgoing daily intelligence briefings.”
Trump brushed off such concerns during an interview that aired last weekend, telling Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he’s a “smart person” who doesn’t need daily updates.

Almost as soon as President-elect Donald Trump nominated Exxon Mobil chief Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, two well-respected veterans of the Republican foreign policy establishment, Condoleezza Rice and Robert Gates, stepped forward with praise for the selection. It turns out Tillerson’s company pays for their consulting firm’s services. Exxon has contracted with RiceHadleyGates LLC since at least 2011 on issues including Middle East policy, according to Iraq Oil Report, a respected industry publication. The well-timed endorsements from Gates and Rice gave Trump’s transition team a head start in assuaging Republican concern over Tillerson’s nomination on Capitol Hill.
