President Donald Trump sat down with Kanye West at the White House to talk tax cuts, prison reform, mental health and racism during a hurricane.
We can recall that Trump called out then-president Barack Obama for doing something similar.
In 2012, Trump slammed Obama for campaigning with JAY-Z weeks after Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New York and New Jersey.
“Yesterday Obama campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy. Wrong!” Trump wrote.
On Thursday, many Twitter users reposted Trump’s tweet.
“How cool, Jayz & Springsteen! You should be so lucky. all you get is Kanye! LOL” a social media user tweeted. “Yesterday Obama campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy. Wrong!”
Following his meeting with West, POTUS gave an update on Hurricane Michael during a press conference.
“Our prayers are with those who lost their lives and with their families and our hearts are with the thousands who have sustained property damage.”
“All residents should heed all local warnings and instructions. My administration is in constant contact with state and local authorities in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.”
“FEMA and first responders are on the ground and we have teams currently conducting search and rescue missions,” Trump said during the press conference.
