West, who wore a red "Make America great again" hat during the meeting, also said that he "loves Hillary" but that her 2016 slogan, "I'm with her", didn't resonate with him, according to NBC political reporter Josh Lederman.

The superstar rapper spoke at length in front of dozens of reporters and photographers - and his wide-ranging, off-the-cuff address felt like something of a rant at times.

West credits Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and is encouraging Trump to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.

The Grammy victor alluded to the president as a father figure: "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy", West said while appearing alongside Trump.

At the lunch, "topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

Talking at speed on everything from 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.

West went on to say that black people "get caught up in the idea of racism". How is it possible that the same man who said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" on national television is the same dude rocking a MAGA hat and lauding Trump?

West also had some clarification about his mental health.

If you thought Kanye West would have air-tight security you couldn't be further from the truth. Brown, a civil rights leader, has met Trump previously. "I'm just disgusted! How do our conversations always go to his primal needs for attention!"

But in his Fox interview, Mr Trump said that West's support had transformed African American views of his presidency.

But he said, "this hat, it gives me power".

"I talked to someone who is very familiar with the Kardashians, or used to be, text messaging with Ray J. You know who Ray J is, he was once close with Kim Kardashian", Ryan said. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

"If ain'time I would've been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence, I feel that I'd be compelled to slap de'Fuq outta you bro For the People", T.I. added.
