Donald Trump welcomes Kanye West to the Oval Office

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West stand together in the lobby at Trump Tower

The White House has said they will talk about manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, where West grew up.

The rapper, who has become one of Trump's highest-profile celebrity supporters, visited the president at the White House for a planned meeting Thursday afternoon.

West attempted earlier this month to broker a meeting between Kaepernick and Trump, urging the former National Football League star to "speak with the president to tell him your experience directly".

"Day One, solved one of his biggest problems".

If you thought Kanye West would have air-tight security you couldn't be further from the truth.

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". The rapper's statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said after West had finished speaking.

"It was from the soul".

West also brushed aside the fight for tougher gun laws.

The rapper is married to Kim Kardashian West, the reality star and cosmetics mogul, who visited the White House in May to advocate sentencing reform.

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

A year later, West visited the then president-elect at Trump Tower in NY in December 2016. "We're going to have Apple, an American company, work on this plane". He said the bombastic pair discussed "life".

"You made a Superman cape for me", he told Trump.

West has received ample criticism from his fans for supporting a president who has become a fixture in highly critical lyrics, public comments, and diss tracks from other rappers such as Eminem, YG, G-Eazy, and the late Mac Miller. From a misdiagnosis. So we can empower the pharmaceuticals and make more money.

Talking at speed on everything from Mr Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance.

During a meeting in front of reporters, the rapper launched into a 10-minute monologue, leaving the usually bombastic Mr Trump looking bemused.

"You don't have ADD, school is boring".

Bush said in 2010 that he felt West's accusation was the "all-time low" point of his two-term presidency. We are both dragon energy. Trump told reporters at Trump Tower that the they had been "friends for a long time". Median income, as you see, at an all-time high. He called himself a "crazy motherfucker".

Trump returned the love at a campaign-style rally in MI in April.

"It is very unfair to African-Americans". "That's a very important thing he's done for his legacy".

Is Kanye the first person to say "motherfucker" in the Oval Office?
