"I Love This Guy": Rapper Kanye West Hugs Donald Trump

President Donald Trump meets with rapper Kanye West and former NFL player Jim Brown in the Oval Office of the White House

However, in front of reporters, West went off on a litany of subjects, including how his "Make America Great Again" hat makes him feel like Superman.

Some of his notable quotes during the controversial visit included some that were of the nonsensical variety, USA Today reported.

In a wild, 10-minute soliloquy, West also launched at least one F-bomb in the Oval Office, described his rhetorical style as "fine wine" with "complex notes", and said he had been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and was actually sleep deprived which can lead to dementia. "He gets it", adding that West "could very well be" a future presidential candidate. But, he said, "This hat, it gives me power in a way". Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

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. "And it was a somber occasion - she was trying to get a woman out of prison - whereas this seemed more like a publicity stunt where it was more about Kanye West", said Brower, who has written books about the White House staff, First Ladies and vice presidents.

Talking loudly and rapidly on everything from Trump's protectionist trade polices to replacing Air Force One with a hydrogen plane, black gun crime, being married to Kim Kardashian and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally loquacious president almost speechless.

Then, according to Jenkins, West announced he made a hat for Trump that says "Make America Great" sans the "again" - and that Trump wore it.

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

"I love everyone, right", he said.

At the lunch, West will be accompanied by black National Football League legend Jim Brown.

Asked if he intends to run for president himself, the rapper said "only after, in 2024".

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something".

West explained to the New York Times in June why he supports Trump, saying there are many more Trump supporters in Hollywood who are just afraid to come forward.

West was not the only musician at the White House on Thursday. "Trump is on his hero's journey right now", West said.

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. Trump brought up his decision to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who'd been incarcerated since 1996 for a drug-related conviction, in early June.
