President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for

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".

West also swore during the meeting, telling the onlookers: "Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today".

"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. My dad and my mom separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home ...

The rapper then gave what amounted to a ringing endorsement of Trump's presidency during a wide-ranging speech that touched on such topics as crime rates in Chicago, mental health, slavery, aerospace technology and the Unabomber.

Music megastar Kanye West loves Donald Trump and proved it in dramatic fashion Thursday, leaping from his seat at a White House meeting to hug the president.

And not only did he greet Trump with a big, affectionate cuddle, he also dubbed himself a "crazy motherfucker".

West also discussed clemency for Larry Hoover, who is serving life in prison in a Supermax facility, calling him a "beacon" and "a living statue".

Kavanaugh to hear first case as Supreme Court justice
It only takes four justices to grant cert, which means that Kavanaugh's appointment didn't force an end to the appeal. Kavanaugh is describing the confirmation process as "contentious and emotional" but says he has "no bitterness".

"You think racism can control me?" I want to hear what Kanye West wants to do when we're talking about criminal justice reform or prisoner reentry - the fact is he can not.

As well as a hand full of reporters, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and senior advisor, was also in attendance, and daughter Ivanka will be joining them for lunch.

After Mike Meyers, who appeared alongside the rapper, took his turn reading a few more planned lines, West added calmly: "George Bush doesn't care about black people". In a freakish performance last month on "Saturday Night Live" he delivered an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

Kanye later said his 10-minute speech was "from the soul, I just channeled it". "We don't have the reparations, but we have the 13th Amendment".

Apparently, during the Presidential campaign, Kanye felt more connected to the Donald just because Clinton's slogan was 'I'm with Her'. It's attractive though! But there's times where, you know, it's something about - I love Hillary. "He's Kanye West, so all these things about [Trump] calling people "dogs" and saying people "coming from s**thole countries" [can be overlooked]". Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

"That was quite something", said Trump, who was joined in the Oval Office by Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown, who smiled and sat quietly through most of event.
