Trump, Kanye Meet In The Oval Office

Trump, Kanye Meet In The Oval Office

"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. But West said many people told him the most important thing is to make sure to curb any stop-and-frisk policies.

Just as he did during his recent appearance on the sketch program, the Chicago native sported "Make America Great Again" hat while noting, "they tried to scare me to not wear this hat". "And he might not have expected to have a insane motherf***er like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe, we are going to make America great again".

"There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman", he said, addressing Mr Trump.

"I'm totally open. If we can do it a different way, Kanye, I'm totally open but they all - we all agree that we have to do something", Trump said.

But prior to lunch, West, donning a red "Make America Great Again" baseball cap, launched into a 10-minute-plus monologue in the Oval Office, covering a wide range of topics, including his family situation, Superman, his support for Trump, and being mistakenly diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. But there's times where you know, there's something about - you know, I love Hillary, I love everyone, right?

Mr Trump said that "stop-and-frisk works".

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year. "That's from the heart".

"What I need SNL and liberals to improve on is, if he don't look good, we don't look good", he said on Thursday.

West spent Wednesday at the SoHo House in Chicago with about 40 community leaders and advisers in preparation for Thursday's White House meeting, according to two sources who attended the discussions. It's attractive though! But there's times where, you know, it's something about - I love Hillary. But West himself had a caveat: "Only after 2024". A "smart cookie". Which is pretty underwhelming considering you've just branded yourself a insane motherfucker.

The pair then posed for photos and West, who did not cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election but has been a vocal supporter of Trump, hugged the president.

West said the president had inspired him to sign a shoe design contract with Adidas. "You are tasting a fine wine", he added. Trump this week called on Chicago to embrace the tactic, which allowed police to detain, question and search civilians without probable cause, though it was deemed unconstitutional in New York City because of its overwhelming impact on minority residents. Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously.
