The rapper didn't rap.

During one pause in West's comments, Mr Trump said: "I tell you what that was pretty impressive".

"This is time for us to say, 'Kanye, we as African American people can not stand idly by while you give cover to a man who has proved to be a white supremacist, who has no interest in African American people", Dyson continued.

It was surreal moment even for a White House accustomed to surreal moments. The two men were getting ready for lunch with National Football League great Jim Brown, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner.

US President Donald Trump meets with rapper Kanye West in the Oval Office.

West's mental health has been a question of speculation since he was hospitalized in 2016.

Kanye West left the normally loquacious president almost speechless.

Anyway, there might actually be some sense in it. Bear with me.

On Thursday, West began the much-anticipated sit-down by praising Trump's efforts in North Korea saying, "On day one you solved one of [Obama's] biggest troubles".

"I like him a lot", Trump said Thursday in an interview on the TV show Fox and Friends.

From there, West discussed prison reform and violence in inner-city Chicago.

Brunson is under house arrest but could get up to 35 years in prison if convicted on charges that his lawyers say are baseless. Brunson, a longtime resident of Turkey, has been under house arrest since October 2016 on terror and espionage allegations.

Talking loudly and rapidly on everything from Trump's protectionist trade polices to replacing Air Force One with a hydrogen plane, black gun crime, being married to Kim Kardashian and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally loquacious president almost speechless.

Williams said Trump used West, 41, as a "prop" to impress a following said to be largely white.

The rapper went on to chastise the NBC sketch show and other liberal-leaning media members for their portrayal of the American president. "This is what our president should be flying". "He has to look good!" This is our president. "He has to be the freshest, the flyest".

"And in the middle of Hurricane Michael, this guy says, 'I like you!'" Chris Wallace said. "I think it would be cool to have Trump factories", he suggested.

West replied: "It was from the soul. I just channeled it", West replied.

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

"I didn't mean to put you on the spot bro", he added. When the New York Times' Maggie Haberman first broke the news of the upcoming meeting earlier this week, she reported that West was specifically interested in speaking about improving employment prospects for former convicts and creating jobs in his hometown of Chicago.

Trump had said that "stop-and-frisk works".

On Trump's support from African Americans: "Blacks really get caught up in the idea of racism over the idea of industry". Shortly after the visit, Trump commuted Johnson's sentence. Trump is on his hero's journey right now. I love everyone, right? We are both dragon energy.

"Meanwhile, we have ten to 13 billion dollars worth of damage to the various places in the panhandle in Florida and meanwhile the president is being entertained by Kanye West and other celebrities". But West himself had a caveat: "Only after 2024".
