The New York Times first reported news of the meeting. The rapper's wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, visited the White House in May.

West has been a longtime support of Trump, describing the president as "my brother" and sometimes donning a "Make America Great Again" hat.

The meeting that will take place at the White House this week between Trump and Ye is said to concern topics of social issues like prison reform, employment in the manufacturing industry and gang violence.

"There are people in jail for really long terms", Trump said in an interview with Fox News.
