He's a good man. Long time. Friends for a long time."The two continued to pose -- Mr. Trump smiling and Kanye glowering, his arms crossed -- while the reporters bombarded them with questions.Finally, when asked what they had discussed, PEOTUS replied, "Life. We discussed life."The questions continued; Kanye continued not talking, prompting one reporter to ask why he didn't have anything to say."I'm just here to take a picture right now," he said, finally cracking a smile and offering a thumbs up gesture.PEOTUS then grasped Kanye's hand in a parting gesture, leaned in to say something to him, and then patted him on the shoulders. He headed back into the elevator. He was accompanied by his daughter Ivanka.
