UPDATED 10/30, 3:06 p.m. ET: Donald Trump returned Lil Wayne's kind words.
A day after the New Orleans rapper announcing having a "great meeting" with the president, Trump said the discussion "went very well." He also described Wayne as a nice guy and even went to so far as to label him an activist.
"Well, he wanted a meeting. He’s a really nice guy," Trump told reporters Friday. "He’s really an activist in a very positive way. And he asked for a meeting, and we had the meeting. And, as you saw, the meeting went very well."

Lil Wayne received backlash on Thursday after sharing a few positive words on President Donald Trump.
The Young Money boss shared a Twitter photo of him standing next POTUS while giving the thumbs-up sign. Weezy claimed he just had a "great meeting" with Trump about his administration's plan to help the Black community. Wayne praised Trump's work on criminal justice reform and highlighted the so-called "Platinum Plan," an Ice Cube-assisted initiative that will purportedly put billions of dollars into black communities.
"Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership," Wayne captioned the photo. "He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."
Wayne, who was previously criticized over statements on police brutality and Black Lives Matter, didn't explicitly endorse Trump's presidency; however, many Twitter users took issue over the supportive message, which comes just days before the 2020 presidential election.
