Kanye West at the White House hugs, talks with Trump

Mr Trump nodded in approval, saying: "That was quite something".

The topics for the meeting were reportedly supposed to include "manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said before the meeting, according to E!

Urban Revitalization Coalition CEO Darrell Scott on Kanye West's meeting with President Trump.

A prominent Trump supporter, West has also expressed support for Kaepernick, the NFL free agent who in 2016 became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice. Kanye continued of the former Democratic presidential candidate Trump says he wants locked up.

"He might not expect to have a insane motherf***r like Kanye West support him", West told those in the Oval Office.

In a 10-minute discourse in the Oval Office, Mr. West said he is bipolar, and also said he's sleep-deprived.

"It hurts us because we need to focus on who were are today", he said.

Met Office names intense low-pressure area - Storm Callum
A weather system, named Storm Callum , has been brewing to the north west, near Newfoundland, and will hit Ireland tomorrow night. The Met Office said there will be strong winds and rainfall up to 10cm, leading to possible flooding and hard driving conditions.

West attempted earlier this month to broker a meeting between Kaepernick and Trump, urging the former National Football League star to "speak with the president to tell him your experience directly".

President Donald Trump says he's "open-minded" about stop-and-frisk policing. "It cost me billions, I said to one of my friends, a very wealthy friend, I bet it cost me $2 or $3 billion, it is worth every penny of it", Trump told "Fox & Friends" in an interview on Thursday. "It was from the soul", West responded.

Mr Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a Saturday Night Live show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

After a quick lunch, Trump and Kanye will probably sit down to hash out West's 2024 campaign strategy, because that's where all this is really headed, isn't it? "We solved one of the biggest problems". So honored by this.

"You might not have expected a insane [expletive] like Kanye running up to support".

Mr. West's wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, also has met with the president, pushing for clemency for a grandmother who was serving a lengthy prison sentence for a relatively minor drug charge. "I'm president.' I didn't know people in Washington".

The president asked Mr. West how it felt to be sitting in the Oval Office. "Also, I'm married to a family that does not have a lot of male energy". And what a great spokesman she is for that situation. "They see the difference, when they pick up two or three thousand more from taxes all of a sudden out of nowhere, they're getting $2,000, that's a lot of money for people". "So we are looking for - we are actively looking for other situations exactly like that".
