The rapper then gave what amounted to a ringing endorsement of Trump's presidency during a wide-ranging speech that touched on such topics as crime rates in Chicago, mental health, slavery, aerospace technology and the Unabomber. You know they tried to scare me to not wear this hat.

Rapper Kanye West shows President Trump a photograph of a hydrogen plane. He praised Trump for being the "freshest", the "flyest" president of the US.

"I didn't mean to put you on the (spot), bro", Kanye told Trump, who said "I'm open to everything" about the subject.

Accusing political opponents of being mentally ill used to be frowned upon in democracies, yet that was the prime tactic media and Twitter voices deployed against Kanye West, who was also labeled an "incel" and "boot licker".

Ahead of a private lunch, Mr Trump and West spoke with reporters as they sat across from each other at the Resolute desk.

"He's been a terrific guy", Trump told reporters of West Tuesday afternoon on the White House South Lawn before departing for Iowa.

(CNBC)Mr. West, who has faced a backlash over his vocal support of the president, will meet first with Mr. Kushner and then have lunch with the president, the two people said. "That's from the heart".

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

The rapper had previously spoken out about his bipolar disorder, but told Trump on Thursday that was a misdiagnosis and that West is instead just sleep-deprived.

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the USA population.

I watched the whole thing because, again, how could you not?

West went on to say that black people "get caught up in the idea of racism".

And it pretty much just got worse from there.

"I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change", he said in the since-deleted tweets.

The White House has said they will talk about manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, where West grew up.

The rapper referred to his own Oval Office opus as "a fine wine", adding "it has complex notes to it". Trump this week called on Chicago to embrace the tactic, which allowed police to detain, question and search civilians without probable cause, though it was deemed unconstitutional in New York City because of its overwhelming impact on minority residents.
