Trump Reportedly Met at White House With Candace Owens, Charlie Kirk to Talk About Kanye, Black America
President Trump reportedly met with two big supporters in the Oval Office today.
Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports that Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk spoke with him about an Oval Office meeting with Trump, him, and Candace Owens.
Owens, of course, got a lot of national attention after getting a Twitter shoutout from Kanye West (which kicked off West’s days-long dive into MAGAworld, which at one point resulted in the President thanking him).
Trump has praised West a few times since then, even crediting his support for increased poll numbers among African-Americans.
Swan reveals that Kirk “has more access to this President than anyone his age in the country” and has some details on what the meeting concerned (including, yes, Kanye):
Kirk told me he and Owens talked to Trump about “black America, Kanye West, and the intersection of culture and politics,” and the “incredible progress being made for black America by President Trump and also historic pardon yesterday.”
“[We] talked about the need for a black exodus from the Democratic Party as their policies have ultimately harmed the very people that are voting for them,” Kirk added.
Kick and Owens recently meet with Donald Trump Jr. at an RNC meeting.
