Kanye West lunching with Trump today; Chicago crime on the menu

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

Kanye, Trump talk Chicago, stop-and-frisk policing, hydrogen-powered Air Force One in Oval Office meeting

Rapper Kanye West speaks to President Donald Trump and others in the Oval Office of the White House, Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, in Washington.

West began the meeting by praising Trump's efforts in North Korea saying, "On day one you solved one of [Obama's] biggest troubles".

Following West's statement, Mr Trump said: "I tell you what that was pretty impressive". But West isn't the only star at the White House Thursday. The rapper visited with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower a month before Trump's inauguration.

"Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today ..."

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a report on the impacts of global warming on Monday. The report also notes that "any remaining emissions would need to be balanced by removing Carbon dioxide from the air".

West explained to the New York Times in June why he supports Trump, saying there are many more Trump supporters in Hollywood who are just afraid to come forward. Trump previously justified the rally by saying he can not disappoint the people who lined up to see him, and today, he stuck to his position by saying "I had very little heat other than the natural haters, which there are obviously some".

West launched into his 10-minute soliloquy that touched on his decision to wear the MAGA hat on the set of "Saturday Night Live", his bi-polar diagnosis and being part of the extended Kardashian family.

Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow and Recording Industry Association of America President Mitch Glazier, along with other music industry leaders are expected to attend.
