Donald Trump has Kanye West for lunch at the White House

Donald Trump has Kanye West for lunch at the White House

Following Kanye West and President Trump's meeting on Thursday - in which the "Ye" rapper covered everything from Superman, the 13th and Second amendments to North Korea - celebrities took to Twitter to voice their distaste with West's visit to the White House.

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.

Fans have long speculated that West would run for president in 2020, but he appeared to throw cold water on that notion for now.

However, in front of reporters, West went off on a litany of subjects, including how his "Make America Great Again" hat makes him feel like Superman.

"This behavior by Trump didn't start yesterday", he said, pointing out that Brown, 82, had a meeting with the then-president-elect in Trump Tower after the 2016 election. It looks like Kanye West is getting worse and worse while off his pills.

West has been publicly supportive of Trump for several months, giving a similar speech to the audience after a performance on "Saturday Night Live" that was not aired.

"I tell you what: That was pretty impressive", the president said.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something".

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian , who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year. West indicated that Trump has "solved" the U.S. "I love this guy right here".

Unlike other royal weddings , the day will not be broadcast on BBC, with ITV's This Morning instead taking over the coverage. The impact of the meeting was so great on Eugenie she phoned her mother, Sarah Ferguson , to tell her of momentous occasion.

"This hat, it gives me power".

"Trump is on his hero's journey right now", West said, tossing out an expletive to describe himself.

Trump, who has had low approval ratings from African-Americans, often links the support of West and Brown to his administration's relationship with the black community.

"Could very well be", Trump said in the Oval Office when asked if he thought the MAGA-hat wearing rapper could be elected president.

Seizing the spotlight from the typically center-stage president, West dropped the F-word, floated policy proposals - and went in for a hug. "The problem is illegal guns, illegal guns is the problem", he said. "I just channeled it", West replied.

CNN host Don Lemon has attacked Kanye West with racially charged remarks, saying the music star's appearance at the White House was "a minstrel show". I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

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