Kanye West and Donald Trump love tweeting.

As always, both men declined to answer direct questions from the press following their Tuesday morning meeting outside Trump tower, but in signature fashion, West shared a few details on Twitter and suggesting that he would postpone his own presidential campaign until 2024.

"I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," West wrote in one tweet. In another, he wrote: "These issues 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."

“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

Immediately following the closed-door meeting, the president-elect called West a good man and said they’ve “been friends for a long time."

E! News, whose parent company produces his wife’s show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, reports that West was speaking with the president-elect about a potential role in the Trump administration. The role is rumored to be an "ambassador of sorts," a source close to the rapper-turned-fashion designer told the outlet. They said Trump is very interested in appointing West to an "entrepreneurial leadership role."
