NEW YORK — Kanye West returned to social media for the first time since his hospitalization to talk about his meeting with Donald Trump.

West wrote on Twitter that he met with Trump on Tuesday to “discuss multicultural issues” that included “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”

“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” West wrote. He followed with a post that read “#2024,” an apparent reference to a revised plan to run for president in 2024, instead of 2020, when Trump could seek a second term.

Trump said after the Tuesday meeting that he and West were “just friends” and called the musician a “good man.” He said they discussed “life.” The two did not answer questions about whether West would perform at the inauguration.

West entered the building after 9 a.m. with a large entourage. He was not accompanied by his wife, Kim Kardashian West.

The 39-year-old recently spent over a week in Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles for stress and exhaustion.
