In Oval Office Remarks, Kanye West Defends His Backing of Trump

Trump's stunned silence as Kanye rants in White House Kanye West To President Trump: ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat Makes Me Feel Like Superman

"We're not sending Kanye West to the White House to talk about these issues because he can't.

I just channeled it", the musician said, adding - to further gasps - that Trump "might not have expected to have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West supporting him".

The rapper, who is from Chicago, also urged Mr Trump to abandon stop-and-frisk policing.

And the 41-year-old made sure he dressed appropriately for the meeting, opting for the President's favourite Make America Great Again cap. The rapper was originally invited to lunch with the president, former National Football League star Jim Brown and Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform, manufacturing, and gang violence.

Following the lengthy monologue, the president said: "That was quite something".

"I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change", he said in the since-deleted tweets. You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home.

Mr Trump said he'd been willing to "look at it", adding, "they have to do something". Kanye said that he was working with Apple to develop such a plane.

Violence in Chicago is personal to West, who was raised in the Windy City, named his youngest child "Chicago", and recently told a crowd that he is moving back, according to a video obtained by TMZ.

"Listen, black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft", Setmayer said.

After one of West's 10-minute sermon-style speeches, the president took over, complimenting the rapper for being a "smart cookie".

Donald Trump hosts lunch Thursday for star rapper Kanye West in the latest push to portray his presidency as being on the side of blacks, rather than only the overwhelmingly white voter block behind his surprise election.

When asked by a reporter if West, who has teased a presidential run in the past, was a viable candidate for commander-in-chief, Trump said that the rapper "could very well be". "He might not have thought he'd have a crazy" person "like me", he said, using an expletive to describe himself.

"I have an open mind", Trump assured him.

"He's a very different kind of a guy, and I say that in a positive way", the president said.

This past summer, Kanye West confirmed his bipolar disorder diagnosis on the cover of his 'Ye album.

'Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance'.

Before they adjourned for a roasted chicken lunch, Kanye stood up, walked over to Trump and gave him a bear hug.

Trump is notoriously unpopular with black Americans and has been accused of being racist.
