Trump signs bills on day of Kanye West's visit

Armed with his MAGA hat, Kanye West took over the Oval Office this afternoon, riveting reporters and freezing President Donald Trump in discomfort as he declared POTUS to be the father he never had, who makes him feel like Superman.

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

In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again".

Trump also defended West as a "nice guy" and "actually a different kind of person than people think".

Kanye West, one of President Trump's most famous and vocal supporters, met with the president at the White House on Thursday to discuss matters including prison reform and gang violence.

"It was from the soul", West said. "He gets it." He also joked that he could be a good presidential candidate to which Kanye responded, "Only after 2024".

In a conversation that lasted almost an hour, Trump ricocheted from one topic to the next, commenting on everything from Hurricane Michael to the infamous anonymous New York Times op-ed to Bob Woodward's new book.

"Well if he doesn't then he gets overruled by me, because I make the decisions, he doesn't", Trump said.

"There were people who said Trump would never win", West said in the interview.

"People try to scare me into not wearing this hat". "One new and great FACT - African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country".

Asked if he would consider campaigning with the rapper, Trump said: "I could see it".

West also had some clarification about his mental health.
