Why the Kanye West-Jim Brown lunch with Trump was a disaster Analysis by Nia-Malika Henderson, CNN

Here are some ideas West raised: [https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/11/politics/kanye-west-jim-brown-donald-trump/]

Bring Trump factories and Yeezy ideation centers to Chicago.
His MAGA hat makes him feel like a superhero.
Make the dopest … no the “flyest” cars.
School is boring. Kids should play basketball while they are doing math.
Time doesn’t exist.
Stop worrying about the future. We only have today.
Trump and Colin Kaepernick wearing “Make America Great” hats at the Super Bowl.
Stop-and-frisk is bad.
The solution to police brutality is love.
Something about an Iplane.
Opening up industries and tax breaks.
Something about liberals distracting black people by focusing on racism.

So, what were the goals here?
For Trump, it was a chance for him to say, Trump does care about black people, but don’t take my word for it, listen to Kanye West.
But what the meeting highlighted was how few African-Americans Trump has in his circle. Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who wrote a scathing tell-all on Trump, hasn’t been replaced.
