Kanye's lunch with Trump: Adidas and hydrogen-powered planes

Share

"Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH", Mr. Trump tweeted in August. "We solved one of the biggest problems".

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, he repeatedly complimented Trump, who nodded in agreement.

"I love Hillary", he said, "I love everyone, right?"

West even touched on how he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder.

"You know when you work with a creator like Kanye West, you don't get mainstream".

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.

"It was from the soul".

"I'm standing in that spot", West replied.

"I have a lot of African-American support and a lot has developed over the last little while with Kanye coming out and Jim Brown's been there for a long time", Trump said. Something tells me he's done this before.

Trump also defended West as a "nice guy" and "actually a different kind of person than people think".

Trump said West "could very well be" a future presidential candidate.

The Chi-town rapper then pulls out his iPhone X, unlocks it with his passcode of "000000", then shows Trump a "GIF" of the plane from his phone.

"We feel stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city", he said. He said the bombastic pair discussed "life".

West was invited to the White House to have lunch with the president, former National Football League star Jim Brown, and the president's son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner to discuss manufacturing, prison reform and gang violence. Later on, when he was asked about characterizations of the president as racist, West said, "As black people we have to take responsibility for what we're doing".

The Apple Store employees suggested West's keynote was just him being "extra".

He said: "What I need Saturday Night Live and the liberals to improve on is if he don't look good, we don't look good". 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.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian, who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year. He claimed the two shared "dragon energy". (That particular dis is from a Chapelle's Show skit.) She added, "They've had it with him".

Trump returned the love at a campaign-style rally in MI in April.

West said he wanted to "abolish the trap door called the 13th Amendment", because, he said, when the amendment was written it was illegal for blacks to read.
