Kanye West reported to have official meeting with Donald Trump in the White House this week

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift's recent political actions have already caused a massive reaction.

Kanye West is set to meet President Donald Trump and his political advisor/son-in-law Jared Kushner this Thursday, according to a report published by The New York Times.

It is expected that Kanye (or is it actually, properly Ye now?) will discuss similar topics to those discussed by Kim Kardashian-West when she met with Trump recently, including the availability of job opportunities for former convicts, as well as how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area.

So apparently Trump can make time for Kanye, but not for Ireland? No, yeah, that's cool.

Kanye continues to come under fire for his support of Trump, especially following the impromptu Pro-Trump sermon that he delivered at the end of his performance on SNL earlier this month.

He has since removed all of his social media accounts, while SNL performer Pete Davidson appeared on the show to fully breakdown what had happened when Kanye decided to give his political speech:

Following that sketch, Davidson's girlfriend Ariana Grande took to Instagram to throw some subtle shade, with a posting of Davidson's face and the caption "I love you like Kanye loves Kanye".

In other, slightly related news, following Taylor Swift finally breaking her long-standing silence on politics, the American voting registration system Vote.org have reported that voting registrations nationwide and in T-Swift's hometown of Tennessee have significantly increased just a day after the singer made her statement.

There have been 51,308 new registrations in the past 24 hours, and it also saw a general spike in website traffic in the last 24 hours, with 155,940 unique visitors.

In the state of Tennessee, 2,811 registrations from September increased to 3,582 in October so far, and 2,144 of those were in the last 36 hours, according to the website.
