In December, Kanye West showed up at Trump Tower to "discuss multicultural issues" with then president-elect Donald Trump. Kanye went on to defend his surprise visit on Twitter, vowing to have a "direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want to change." Now, to borrow from a classic Joey Tribbiani line, the line is a dot to Kanye. It might even be less than a dot. As TMZ noticed on Monday, all tweets related to Kanye's meeting with Trump have been deleted from his Twitter account because Kanye has been "super unhappy" with the new president's first weeks in office. According to the site, Kanye made the decision to remove the tweets because he didn't agree with Trump's immigration ban and other actions.
Following the Dec. 13 visit, Kanye shared a photo of a signed copy of Trump's new Time magazine cover, along with Trump's message, "To Kanye you are a great friend." That tweet has also since been deleted. (The whereabouts of the actual magazine remain a mystery, but I sure hope Kanye recycles).

Kanye's Twitter purge comes days after Kim Kardashian responded to Trump's Muslim ban by tweeting a widely-circulated statistics breakdown of the number of Americans killed annually by Islamic jihadist immigrants compared to being shot by another American.
As the world waits for a status update on Kanye and Trump's friendship, it's also important to remember that their relationship has not been smooth since that meeting at Trump Tower. Just before Trump's inauguration weekend in January, Kanye was deemed not "typically and traditionally American" by a member of the inauguration team to perform at the festivities.
