Donald Trump welcomes Kanye West to the Oval Office

Donald Trump welcomes Kanye West to the Oval Office”

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

West ended a September 29 performance of "Saturday Night Live" by delivering an unaired pro-Trump speech that drew catcalls from the audience. "We solved one of the biggest problems".

"Only after, in 2024!" he said, adding that everyone needs to stop talking about the future because "all we have is today".

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

"I have an open mind", Trump assured him. "We have the right to bear arms". "He started showing that he actually had power", West said.

But West, who's from Chicago, told Trump that this strategy is detrimental. West grew up and recently said he planned to return, according to the person briefed on the meeting.

The hip-hop artist has been harshly criticized by many blacks on the left for working with Mr. Trump.

In a almost 10-minute-long speech in the Oval Office, West said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat, and said he has felt pressure to be a Democrat because he is black.

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

Mr. Trump said of the rapper, "He can speak for me anytime he wants". He's a smart cookie. "We don't have 13 floors, do we?"

"We don't need sentences, we need pardons", Mr. West told the president. Mr. Trump granted the woman's release from prison.

Kanye also linked with the Pres' son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and ex-football star Jim Brown, to discuss various issues, including prison reform. "I just channeled it".

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

West has been publicly supportive of Trump for several months, giving a similar speech to the audience after a performance on "Saturday Night Live" that was not aired.
