Kanye West created much hubbub after he wore a red MAGA hat on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend. He had kind words for President Trump in a speech which did not make it to the air, but was seen plenty on social media. The rap superstar was not done yet, though.

“Kanye West says he’s reached out to Colin Kaepernick — and wants to bring him to Washington for a special meeting with Donald Trump. West — wearing his Make America Great Again hat — sat down with Harvey Levin on ‘TMZ Live’ on Monday and said he hopes to bring the two sides together so they can work out their issues,” the national celebrity gossip show said in a report on Monday.

“Of course, Donald Trump has been extremely critical of Kaepernick, strongly pressuring NFL owners to fire all of the ‘sons of bitches’ who don’t stand for the national anthem. Kaepernick has said he began kneeling to shine a spotlight on police brutality against black people — but Trump feels the demonstration is disrespectful to the flag and military vets,” the show reported.

“So, will Kanye succeed in putting together a peace summit between Trump and Kaep? He didn’t say if either side was open to the idea. But Trump has praised Kanye as a brilliant leader, so we’re guessing he would be in,” the report suggested.
