Kanye West stages surreal White House meeting with Donald Trump

"He might not have thought he'd have a insane (expletive) like (me)".

Some of Mr. West's proposals might not go far.

But fans are not happy about the social media stunt, which came after the artist made headlines for his outspoken support of U.S. president Donald Trump on Friday.

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

Mr. West said his top priority was to dissuade Mr. Trump from promoting "stop-and-frisk" police tactics in Chicago. "It was meant for problems like Chicago". The President has frequently praised the program, telling a group of law enforcement last week that he has urged the city of Chicago to "strongly consider stop-and-frisk".

"He might not expect to have a insane motherf***r like Kanye West support him", West told those in the Oval Office.

"I'm open-minded, I'm here".

West later told reporters of his verbal stylings: "You are tasting a fine wine that has multiple notes to it. They [Chicago residents] respect this guy". "You think racism can control me?" "Not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms". "We can empower the pharmaceuticals", he said.

The contract could last up to ten years and the victor of the bid is expected to be announced at the end of the year. Amazon is largely considered a front-runner because it has been the CIA's primary cloud-service provider for years.

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.

Trump, apparently impressed, responded, "We'll get rid of Air Force 1".

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West told Mr Trump during the 10-minute speech. "This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one's soul to gain power I've ever seen".

He said that Trump had given him (we assume metaphorically) "a Superman cape" to help do good.

"There's a whole lot of people in this country that do give you a lot of credit for everything you've been doing for this country", he said.

The meeting was also attended by NFL Hall of Fame player Jim Brown, Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner. "Oh, that don't stop me, that's an invisible wall".

President Donald Trump Donald has welcomed Kanye West to the White House, and says the rapper "has been a friend for a long time". "He's a smart cookie". The president asked him what it felt like. So, we don't have reparations, but we have the 13th Amendment. He brought up Larry Hoover, the leader of the Gangster Disciples who is serving a life sentence for murder, claiming, "The reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community". (That particular dis is from a Chapelle's Show skit.) She added, "They've had it with him".
