Now, we may know just what exactly West was doing with Trump: he reportedly discussed an ambassadorship or an "entrepreneurship leadership role."

E! News reported with the exclusive that West is being considered for a position.

The "Jesus Walks" rapper met with Trump to discuss becoming an "ambassador of sorts," a source close to West tells E! News. The source adds that Trump is interested in getting West involved in an "entrepreneurial leadership role."

As for how the meeting came about, the insider tells us that Trump's team reached out to West. "Trump thinks he's a great role model when it comes to business," the insider adds.

In a video taken shortly after the meeting, Trump explained that he's been friends with West for a long time.

West recently announced that while he did not vote in the 2016 election, if he had, he would have voted for Trump. Shortly after that announcement, West canceled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo tour and was hospitalized for a short period of time. West has also mused the idea of a 2020 run for president.
