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.

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

Kanye, wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, said that "they try to scare me into not wearing this hat". But he said "this hat, it gives me power".

West then booked it, saying he was going to Africa, Jenkins tweeted. The rapper's statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.

"You said, 'I guess you know I love you, '" West told Trump as the meeting began.

"It was from the soul".

"I hate the way they portray us in the media", West said at the time.

And what did Trump call his newest best pal back? Much of the time was spent on compliments between the two and West's much-talked about support for the president.

"I hope to run against him someday", Trump told Rolling Stone magazine.

West isn't the only one in his family to meet with the president over political issues.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian, who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

It's unclear how West learned about Hoover's case, but it has been on his radar for at least a few weeks.

He went on to say that "we are cheating on our country" by "making everything in China, not America". He said the bombastic pair discussed "life".

As fans of the Grammy Award victor know, he has outspokenly supported the president since 2016.

The number one thing he wanted to discuss with Trump, he said, is "stop and frisk" law enforcement practices that allow police to stop and search people on the street.

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

But West, who's from Chicago, tells Trump that this strategy is detrimental.

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

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

According to the Washington Post's Felicia Sonmez, quoting from another Post reporter, West referred to his own comments as "a fine wine" and also, brace yourself, said he'd be open to running for president "after 2024". We are both dragon energy.

The conversation began with an exchange on North Korea among Trump, Brown and West. Trump said the region was headed for war before he took over, and West commended him for stopping it. West said, before giving him a huge hug. Median income, as you see, at an all-time high.

"I was very emotional and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality".
