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

West said he loved everyone - including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton - but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy".

"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".

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

The President said during the White House meeting that he's "totally open" to an alternative to stop-and-frisk. "So when I said I'm like Trump to someone that's liberal they'll say, 'Oh, he's racist.' You think racism can control me?" West, and gently correcting him on the location of a manufacturing facility. He walked over to Trump and held out his phone, to show him a picture of what he said was "the i-plane 1 - a hydrogen-powered airplane -this is what the president should be flying in".

The Chicago-raised rapper and the NY real estate mogul-turned president have a long friendship that goes back before the 2016 election. "But they told me, and I liked him, and I'm not scared to say what I like".

The president was clearly looking forward to having West visit the White House: Much of his lengthy "Fox & Friends" interview earlier in the morning was focused on his relationship with the rapper, linking their freakish friendship to a rise in poll numbers. He recently wore a "Free Hoover" sweatshirt in promotional material ahead of his controversial appearance on "Saturday Night Live".

Umpire criticises Nick Kyrgios’ ‘borderline’ effort at Shanghai Masters
It is the third successive year in which the Australian has gone out of the tournament in controversial fashion. In 2016, he copped a $16,500 fine following a straight sets to Germany's Mischa Zverev .

He made the comment as he met with rapper and producer Kanye West at the White House. West dined on roasted chicken and fingerling potatoes over lunch with Trump, Jared Kushner and Ivanka, fellow musician Kid Rock and Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown.

Kanye West headed to the White House for a face-to-face chat with Donald Trump earlier today. There was a camera crew filming the meetings, according to the sources, who did not know if the crew was filming for an upcoming episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".

And he wasn't even the one wearing a Make America Great Again hat. "We're going to make certain categories tougher when it comes to drug dealing and other things, but there has to be a reform because it is very unfair right now", he said. "And he sees that".

West, who received harsh criticism for suggesting slavery was a "choice," told Trump that "we have to release the love (throughout) the country. we don't have the reparations but we have the 13th Amendment".

Ike Barinholtz, who directed the upcoming Trump-inspired political satire "The Oath", said the meeting was inappropriate given the hurricane that is wrecking havoc on the east coast. The two discussed multicultural issues, education and violence in Chicago, West tweeted at the time. West said they need to create factories.

Thursday's visit will mark Kanye's second sit-down with Trump - the Chicago, Illinois native previously showed his support for the leader by stopping by his Trump Tower offices in NY shortly after he was elected into office in November, 2016.
