West - best known as Kanye but recently stated that he wants to be known as Ye - is one of the mould-breaking president's more unusual supporters.

Ryan, who appeared on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer to break down the meeting between Trump and West, brought up rapper Ray J, saying that he was "a little concerned" about the meeting.

Wearing a Make America Great Again cap, despite receiving heavy criticism from his fellow celebrities for doing so, West swore, unlocked his phone apparently using the password 0000 and insisted he had been misdiagnosed as bipolar and was instead sleep deprived.

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.

West told reporters at the Oval Office he loves Clinton.

Rapper Kanye West met Thursday with Donald Trump, telling the President in an Oval Office meeting before reporters why he supports the Republican.

On Thursday, West attributed his support for the president to not having "a lot of male energy" in his home growing up.

They were joined by Jim Brown, the legendary former Cleveland Browns running back, as well as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

"We feel stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city".

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. Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

Other fans posted simple messages of "delete" or disapproving GIFs, some of which were of Kanye West.

"I tell you what: That was pretty impressive", the president said.

Mr Trump was asked by a journalist if West could be a future presidential candidate, and the president replied: "Could very well be".

"I didn't mean to put you on the (spot), bro", Kanye told Trump, who said "I'm open to everything" about the subject.

While we admire the products Apple delivers, it is a awful idea for the phone and computer company to get into the aviation business to create what is arguably the most important plane in the world. "I think it would be cool to have Trump factories", he suggested.

"My issue with Kanye West is quite simple - it's that anti-intellectualism simply isn't cool", said commentator Bakari Sellers.
