Kanye West tells Trump MAGA hat made him feel like ‘Superman’

West said he "loved Hillary" Clinton, Trump's 2016 Democratic rival, because he loves everyone, but said he connected with Trump's "male energy". The two will discuss prison reform and gang violence. "I just channelled it", the musician said, adding - to gasps from presidential staff - that Mr Trump "might not have expected to have a insane motherf***** like Kanye West supporting him".

"When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman - my favorite superhero". He loves him - and proved it Thursday by suddenly striding from his chair at a surreal White House meeting to hug the president. "This Adidas thing made me a billionaire".

Apple is great at making phones, maybe let the company create a reliable self-driving auto before we let them take to the skies. "I just channeled it", West said.

Following the Oval Office meeting, the pair were scheduled to speak with Mr Trump as well as his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner. "We can empower the pharmaceuticals", he said.

West even showed the United States president a gif on his phone in apparent support of his pitch.

West credited Mr Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and encouraged him to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.

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

To which West replied, "Only after 2024".

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?"

During the meeting, Kanye took the opportunity to explain why he wants to abolish the 13th amendment - joking that it's an unlucky number, as well as branding it "a trap door". Racism, he said, is an invisible wall in the country.

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

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

Kanye West made headlines on Friday after a 10-minute rant in President Trump's office in which he praised the leader.

The office is no stranger to blue language - cue the Richard Nixon tapes - but West's often incoherent performance occurred before reporters and cameras. "You are tasting a fine wine that has multiple notes in it", he said.

Fans have long speculated that West would run for president in 2020, but he appeared to throw cold water on that notion for now.

Returning to law enforcement issues and prison sentences, he called Hoover "a living statue" for black people. West was referring to the Tesla CEO's recent problems with the SEC. "Not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms".
