Donald Trump Hosts Kanye West In Bizarre White House Meeting

Donald Trump Hosts Kanye West In Bizarre White House Meeting

Thirteen years after asserting on live TV that then-President George W. Bush didn't "care about black people", Kanye West on Thursday walked back the comment by saying he was affected by a "victimized mentality".

The rapper, who is from Chicago, also urged Mr Trump to abandon stop-and-frisk policing. Instead, the company has suggested in the past that users select passcodes with unique significance only they may know.

"He's been a terrific guy", Trump told reporters of West Tuesday afternoon on the White House South Lawn before departing for Iowa.

Sporting his now-signature "Make America Great Again" hat, West made his first trip to the executive mansion to move the needle on several issues close to his heart and, before he deleted it, his social media feed - among them prison reform, gang violence and his hometown of Chicago.

"That was quite something", Trump added.

Wearing a Make America Great Again hat "made me feel like Superman", he said.

Rapper Kanye West speaks during his meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC, on October 11, 2018.

Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to US President Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning.

"Look at this, Jared", West said to the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, as he presented him with drawings of his idea, the iPlane 1.

He broke into a nervous laugh and we just hope he's not referencing his freakish new song again, you know the one where he says he'd "smash" his four sister-in-laws.

Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.

"I'm standing in that spot", West replied.

Mr Trump said: "That's really nice".

"You might not have expected a insane [expletive] like Kanye running up to support".

"I have a lot of African-American support and a lot has developed over the last little while with Kanye coming out and Jim Brown's been there for a long time", Trump said.

He said he "loves" the president, before hugging him.

The politician and attorney continued, "Just the other day, [West] was talking about STEM programs and how we needed to have more STEM programs and had to turn around and ask his colleague, what did STEM mean?" West launched into a soliloquy-peppered with occasional curse words-about his own upbringing, violence in Chicago and his unapologetic backing of a president who has found tepid support among other entertainers or black Americans.
