Kanye West met with President Donald Trump on October 11 at the Oval Office, giving an unprepared 10-minute monologue in front of reporters and drawing praise from Trump for his honesty. The rapper was originally invited to lunch with the president, former National Football League star Jim Brown and Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform, manufacturing, and gang violence.

Kanye West spent the afternoon bonding with his new best friend, Donald Trump, at the White House.

"I love this guy right here!"

But West, who's from Chicago, tells Trump that this strategy is detrimental.

At a meeting with Trump in the White House yesterday Kanye even whipped out his phone and, after revealing his passcode to the entire room, showed Trump a concept image of the plane. Kanye said that he ended up talking to Trump about prison reform and manufacturing, among other issues.

Is Kanye the first person to say "motherfucker" in the Oval Office?

West not only wore one of the caps into the Oval Office but declared: "There's something about when I put on this hat, I feel like Superman". "I just channeled it", West said.

West also used the opportunity to applaud Mr Trump's efforts with North Korea and said he liked the country.

Mr. West said that he didn't have "a lot of male energy" in his home due to his parents' separation and noted that he is married into a family of strong women-including his wife, Kim Kardashian.

According to reports out of the room where the meeting took place, West spoke for a solid 10 minutes, said he had been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and also said he's sleep-deprived.

Taking questions from reporters, the rapper also voiced concern about stop-and-frisk policing.

West and Trump, accompanied by a pack of reporters, sat down in the Oval Office on Thursday. "So when I said, "I like Trump" to [a] liberal, they'll say, 'Oh, but he's racist.' You think racism can control me?"

Meanwhile, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star, Chelsea Peretti, replied to a photo of West, 41, hugging Trump, calling it "hell on earth". I have conversations that basically said that welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat.

Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a "Saturday Night Live" show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

"I'm standing in this spot, I love this guy!"
