Jim Brown Defends White House Visit Says It Was 'Very Postitive'

Seated across from Trump at the famous Resolute Desk, West began the Oval Office meeting - which also included NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner - with a almost 10-minute-long speech that the rapper said was "from the soul", according to White House pool reports.

Kanye came to the White House clearly with a lot on his mind, chiefly his support for the president.

Ever since Kanye rolled up the Oval Office yesterday to meet with the President, it seems like most people have been reacting in anger or even more disappointment towards the "No Mistakes" rapper.

The main point of the conversation was supposed to be prison reform, American manufacturing, creating jobs and preventing gang violence in Chicago.

In a 10-minute discourse in the Oval Office, Mr. West said he is bipolar, and also said he's sleep-deprived. Those items were addressed in a pre-lunch meeting, but Kanye launched into a speech and Trump let him go on as the cameras recorded it all.

"I love this guy right here", West said. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West's support and best believe, we are going to make America great".

West likes Chappelle so much that he once took off his Yeezys and gave them to the funnyman on the spot, a moment captured by Kardashian, and one that makes us think West may take Chappelle's opinion seriously.

"I had to turn the television off because it was so hard to watch", he said.

West, who received harsh criticism for suggesting slavery was a "choice", told Trump that "we have to release the love (throughout) the country. we don't have the reparations but we have the 13th Amendment".

Google plans to shut down its social network and announce new privacy measures in response to the incident, the paper said. The company says it discovered and patched the issue in March but decided not to disclose it immediately.

Trump, for his part, said West was "a smart cookie" and could "very well be" a future presidential candidate. How is it possible that the same man who said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" on national television is the same dude rocking a MAGA hat and lauding Trump?

"When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman - my favorite superhero".

The U.S. and North Korea have held an uneasy armistice since 1953, with Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong Un lobbing threats of nuclear annihilation back and forth against each other last summer.

West acknowledged that some people have an issue with the word "again" in the trademark Trump slogan, and said he prefers simply "Make America Great".

During his visit with Trump, Kanye mentioned Apple in the context of telling Trump he wanted to build an "iPlane" to replace Air Force One.

In the middle of his answer to a question about his stance on Kanye, the comedian said he's scared of what America will be like after Trump leaves office.

She secured a pardon for a great-grandmother who had been serving a life sentence for drugs offences.

Trump told "Fox and Friends" Thursday: "He's a different kind of guy and that's OK with me". "That was quite something", Trump said.

Ahead of a private lunch, the US President and West spoke with reporters as they sat across from each other at the Resolute desk.
