Former President Obama wants to make ‘a million Baracks’ and ‘a million Michelles’, but definitely no more Kanyes.
If reports are true, the ex-Commander-in-Chief has asked Jay Z to prevent rappers and hip hop artists from meeting with President Trump.
According to an unsourced tweet reported by InfoWars, “Sources are confirming that former President Barack Obama has called Jay-Z several times over the past month pleading with Jay-Z to discourage fellow Hip Hop artists from meeting with President Trump.”
The message has been retweeted more than 7,000 times and racked up over 10,000 likes, including one from Donald Trump Jr.
While that particular interaction remains unconfirmed, it follows a TMZ report that Jay Z and other black entertainers convinced the recently-released-from-prison rapper Meek Mill to cancel plans to attend President Trump’s summit on prison reform last week.
Jay Z and wife Beyonce are friends of the Obamas, and they both publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
