Inching ever closer to a Cabinet position with each passing day, Billboard now reports that Kanye West will attend the signing ceremony for the new Music Modernization Act while swinging by the White House Thursday.

West also mentioned North Korea and said, to Trump, "You stopped the war".

With that, West launched into a almost 10-minute-long speech that the rapper said was "from the soul", according to White House pool reports. West also says that many people believe that if someone's black, then that person has to be a Democrat.

West was at the White House to talk to Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, about prison reform, gang violence and manufacturing.

"It was from the soul", West said.

Kanye West also enjoyed some lunch with President Trump in the private dining room of the Oval Office, which included a delicious meal that included caprese salad and roast chicken.

"He can speak for me anytime he wants", Trump said, gratefully.

This Is Brett Kavanaugh's First Question as a Supreme Court Justice
Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit". There are 100 Senators, two from each state, and Republicans now hold a razor thin majority with 51 seats.

The rapper's wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, visited the White House in May.

West has been supportive of the president, sharing a picture of himself with a "Make America Great Again" hat earlier this year and praising him during a recent "Saturday Night Live" appearance.

"Could very well be", Trump said.

West explained to the New York Times in June why he supports Trump, saying there are many more Trump supporters in Hollywood who are just afraid to come forward.

"He's a very different kind of a guy, I say that in a positive way", President Trump gushed during an interview on Fox.

Trump's clothing line is made in China, but West did not mention that.

"People try to scare me into not wearing this hat. You make a Superman cape for me", he gushed at Trump, who was sitting with his desk between him and Kanye, and seemed happier for it.
