The rapper was originally invited to lunch with the president, former National Football League star Jim Brown and Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform, manufacturing, and gang violence.

The rapper had been invited to lunch to discuss prison reform but turned what would ordinarily have been a staid White House photo-op into possibly one of the more unusual - and profanity laden - encounters in the Oval Office's storied history.

Jimmy Kimmel explained that even with Donald Trump in the White House, he and his staff still have to write jokes for the show, at least until Kanye West dropped by to visit the president.

Trump told "Fox and Friends" Thursday: "He's a different kind of guy and that's OK with me".

West said that much of the nation's inner-city factory jobs have moved to China, and that with Trump's trade standoff with the country, those areas may see economic rejuvenation.

He walked over to Trump and held out his phone, to show him a picture of what he said was "the i-plane 1 - a hydrogen-powered airplane -this is what the president should be flying in". "When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman", he told Trump.

"I'm totally open. If we can do it a different way, Kanye, I'm totally open but they all - we all agree that we have to do something", Trump said.

"Let me give this guy a hug", he said.

It was easy to believe from the video, judging by his animated motions while sitting across from President Trump . According to Trump , President Obama told him that North Korea was one of the country's biggest problems.


West also said he viewed Trump as a "father figure", adding that putting on the "Make America Great Again" hat made him feel like "Superman" who could help the world. "He's a smart cookie".

When his monologue was finally finished, it was Trump's turn to say something.

The rapper also spoke against stop-and-frisk policing policies, which Mr Trump recently expressed support for.

"I talked to someone who is very familiar with the Kardashians, or used to be, text messaging with Ray J. You know who Ray J is, he was once close with Kim Kardashian", Ryan said.

"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him".
