Kanye: 'Trump hat made me feel like Superman'

Reporter ridicules Trump’s embrace of Kanye: ‘Laughable’ to treat him as an ambassador from the black community

Well, it finally happened - Kanye West's White House meeting with President Donald Trump took place in the Oval Office on Thursday, and it seems like their conversation was just as unusual as you might guess. "I love this guy", West said.

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.

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.

A year later, West visited the then president-elect at Trump Tower in NY in December 2016.

West's visit follows two visits by his wife Kim Kardashian West, who has met with Trump at the White House and successfully secured a presidential pardon for a woman who was serving a life sentence in prison over non-violent drug charges.

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

Kanye West and Neil Portnow, the president of the Recording Academy, will both be present during the ceremonial signing of the Music Modernization Act.

Spain's meteorological office warned that rainfall and storms were set to get worse in the archipelago "in the coming hours". Public broadcaster TVE showed footage of flooded streets and overturned cars along the guardrails of a major road.

During the "Weekend Update" segment of the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live", cast member Pete Davidson described West a "musical genius" - but that's it.

"You made a Superman, that's my favourite superhero, you made a Superman cape for me".

West replied: "It was from the soul".

"There are people in jail for really long terms", Trump said in an interview with Fox News.

West said he had been an underdog his entire career, and that drew him to Trump, a man who many felt could never win the presidency. "I could see it". After a quick lunch, Trump and Kanye will probably sit down to hash out West's 2024 campaign strategy, because that's where all this is really headed, isn't it? "Let me come over here and get in this fight with you".

West also had some clarification about his mental health.
