According to the Washington Post's Felicia Sonmez, quoting from another Post reporter, West referred to his own comments as "a fine wine" and also, brace yourself, said he'd be open to running for president "after 2024".

During his meeting with president Donald Tump Thursday (Oct. 11), West went on a tangent about fancy planes, the state of his mental health, prison reform and the 13th amendment in the White House.

Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings.

In a Fox television interview Thursday, Trump said that Kanye's support had transformed blacks' view of his presidency.

"It was from the soul". I don't even know if he's going to Trump but I'm having dinner with him Wednesday night and I've been very happy with our relationship. Trump, who recently touted stop-and-frisk, told West he is willing to talk about other solutions. "And there are a lot of people that are in a situation like that, and we are actively looking for those situations", Mr. Trump said Wednesday.

West has returned the love, bucking left-leaning showbiz trends to come out as a Trump supporter, complete with the red Make America Great Again baseball cap most often seen at the president's rowdy election campaign rallies - where African Americans are often hard to spot. The president said the session "was just set up to be a lunch of two people I like".

"I was very emotional and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality".

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", said the president in response to West's outpouring.

"A lot of times it's just the overall lack of reparations that we - at any given point, we say this is racist, this is racist, this is racist, this is racist". "What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, what I need the liberals to improve on: if he don't look good, we don't look good", Kanye said, gesturing at Trump.

President Trump typically isn't one to be upstaged - but that wasn't the case Thursday when rapper Kanye West launched into a monologue across from him in the Oval Office, leaving even Mr. Trump almost speechless.

Trump and West previously appeared together shortly after Trump's 2016 election in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY. News. But it seems like both Trump and West veered more than slightly off-topic.

Kanye's wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, sat down with the US President earlier this year to discuss criminal justice reform. West said, before giving him a huge hug.

A "smart cookie". Which is pretty underwhelming considering you've just branded yourself a insane motherfucker.
