Kanye West says he’s aiming to bring Colin Kaepernick to the White House to meet with President TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden says GOP senators have called to congratulate him Biden: Trump attending inauguration is 'of consequence' to the country Biden says family will avoid business conflicts MORE and get the pair “on the same page” amid their divide on NFL national anthem protests.

“I’ve been calling Colin this morning,” the “Yeezus” rapper told “TMZ Live’s” Harvey Levin in a Monday interview, while sporting a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat.


NFL free agent Kaepernick was the first to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner” before football games to protest social injustice and racial inequality.

Trump has criticized 30-year-old Kaepernick and other protesting NFL players, saying last year, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, your, he’s fired.’” 

But West, who’s raised eyebrows for his support of Trump, said he wants to bring Kaepernick “to the White House” in order to “remove that ‘sons of bitches’ statement and we can be on the same page.”

“We never give up on anyone,” West told Levin. “We move forward. We give love. We keep going. We keep having the conversation, until the conversation turns to love, we keep going.”

West, 41, made headlines over the weekend after delivering a pro-Trump message onstage following an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” before tweeting criticism of the 13 Amendment, which abolished slavery.

The entertainer, who’s married to reality TV veteran Kim Kardashian West, also has voiced his support for Kaepernick before. After the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback signed a deal with Nike last month to be the face of its new campaign ad, West tweeted, “I stand for giving everyone a voice.”
