Addressing Mr Trump, he added: "There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman".

On Trump: "Let's stop worrying about the future; all we have is today". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-- like [me]" as an ally.

"You know, my dad and my mum separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home".

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is going to do much more than grub with President Donald Trump. Kanye continued of the former Democratic presidential candidate Trump says he wants locked up.

Kanye was The White House when President Trump signed the 2018 Music Modernization Act (MMA), which was passed by U.S. Senators last month.

Over a lunch of caprese salad and roast chicken, Gidley said discussion would be centered on "President Trump's historic work to benefit all Americans".

West said that he brought a newly designed hat that simply stated: "Make America Great".

For example, he encouraged Mr. Trump to attend the next Super Bowl with Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who started protests against the national anthem, demonstrations that the president has criticized vehemently.

West said he was raising the case of a 68-year-old prisoner.

He revealed that his friends had tried to scare him not to wear the MAGA hat, popularised during the president's campaign in 2016.

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said after West spoke.

But West, launching into a more than 10-minute, profanity-infused soliloquy, talked about being mistakenly diagnosed as bipolar, about his family situation, and about his support for Mr. Trump, among other things. But West himself had a caveat: "Only after 2024".

"Day One, solved one of his biggest problems".

"I love this guy!" he said.

Before they adjourned for a roasted chicken lunch, Kanye stood up, walked over to Trump and gave him a bear hug.

"We are one unit, we are one country, we are one unit in the history of time", Trump said.

When his monologue was finally finished, it was President Trump's turn to say something.
