What made Kanye's White House visit 'a weird moment' for the presidency

Trump not only relies on a heavily white political base but is locked in an ugly dispute with several black NFL football players who have knelt down during the playing of the United States national anthem to protest racial inequality.

The politician and attorney continued, "Just the other day, [West] was talking about STEM programs and how we needed to have more STEM programs and had to turn around and ask his colleague, what did STEM mean?" The artist suggested that stop-and-frisk "does not help the relationships" in the city. Oh that don't stop me.

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

The president replied, "I'm open-minded".

Ryan, who appeared on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer to break down the meeting between Trump and West, brought up rapper Ray J, saying that he was "a little concerned" about the meeting.

Kanye West came face to face with Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday (Oct. 11). The storm killed more than 1,800 people and left thousands struggling to find food, water and shelter. "We have the right to bear arms".

"We don't need sentences, we need pardons", he said.

Mr Trump joked: "We could get rid of Air Force One".

The 41-year-old music star also mused about why Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in 2016.

West responded, "I like the North Korea".

Referring to a prisoner whose case he is raising with the president, West said, "Really, the reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community".

West, who has become one of Trump's most outspoken supporters, stirred controversy in an appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" last month when he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat during his performance and delivered a pro-Trump speech to the studio audience.

As well as a hand full of reporters, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and senior advisor, was also in attendance, and daughter Ivanka will be joining them for lunch. "That won't stop me". "He's a smart cookie".

Commenting on police brutality, he said that if someone disrespects him he would have to shoot them.

He repeatedly mentioned the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which outlawed slavery.

West later told reporters of his verbal stylings: "You are tasting a fine wine that has multiple notes to it". Larry Hoover is a living statue.

Trump raised her case again Thursday as an example of why the prison system needs urgent change.

National Football League legend Jim Brown also attended the meeting. "I just channelled it".

"It was something about when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman", West said. "This hat, it gives me power in a way".

Addressing the media encircling the Resolute Desk, he went on, "These are two friends of mine". "That's from the heart".

Which is the closest I have ever felt to the President - because I was feeling all those same things watching the rapper and the celebrity President interact in front of the cameras. "It's a good energy", West said.
