During his visit to New York, Kanye West paid a visit to Donald Trump‘s Trump Tower on Tuesday (Dec. 13, 2016).

West was accompanied by his entourage, which included a cameraman and Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend Corey Gamble, as he entered the elevator in the lobby, waving and smiling at the onlookers, as seen in the video below.

Later, West and Trump were caught on camera walking out of the elevator together. They addressed the press, shoulder-to-shoulder. “Just friends, just friends,” said Trump. “He’s a good man. We’ve been friends for a long time.” When they were asked about what they discussed, Trump replied, “Life. We discussed life.” Kanye did not offer any further commentary and preferred to focus on getting his picture taken with the President-elect. Their meeting ended with the most awkward handshake of all time. Watch:

After the election, West spoke out in support of the President-elect at several of his concerts even though he claimed that he did not vote. He also voiced his intent in running for office in 2020, which was a challenge that Trump said that he would welcome. “He’s actually a different kind of person than people think. He’s a nice guy,” Trump said of West in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2015. “I hope to run against him someday.”

According to TMZ, West is currently in New York to interview psychiatrists to settle on one that would become his go-to doctor while he’s on the East Coast. The appointed psychiatrist would also join his West Coast treatment team, which has been providing him with non-stop care following his release from a psychiatric hold at the hospital. People reports that Kim Kardashian is not happy that West is jumping right back into the public about his hospitalization. “Kanye is supposed to rest and focus on his mental health. Instead, he has had a very busy week and is done resting,” a source told the magazine. “Kanye is supposed to rest and focus on his mental health.
