Williams said the Oval Office should be "treated with respect", appearing to nod to the fact that West used an expletive while praising Trump. "Trump is on his hero's journey right now".

The Grammy victor alluded to the president as a father figure: "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy", West said while appearing alongside Trump.

Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning. Later on, when he was asked about characterizations of the president as racist, West said, "As black people we have to take responsibility for what we're doing".

The President said during the White House meeting that he's "totally open" to an alternative to stop-and-frisk.

"What Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I've seen here, and I've seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern", "SNL" star Pete Davidson joked in a skit the following week.

West, who received harsh criticism for suggesting that slavery was a "choice," also told Trump that "we have to release the love [throughout] the country".

The Chicago-raised rapper and the NY real estate mogul-turned president have a long friendship that goes back before the 2016 election. Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

The "risk of risky storm surge, rainfall, and wind impacts continues to increase", the National Hurricane Center warned Sunday. He urged Floridians to get prepared for the storm and said he has activated 500 members of the Florida National Guard.

It's unclear how West learned about Hoover's case, but it has been on his radar for at least a few weeks. Larry Hoover is a living statue. Kim Kardashian's husband is set to meet with POTUS and Jared Kushner about criminal justice reform, job opportunities for former convicts, and how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area, according to the New York Times.

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 what must have been one of the most unusual encounters in the Oval Office's storeyed history. "That was quite something", Mr. Trump said. I didn't rank them in any set order, because how in the world would you even do that? And Kanye is a smart guy.

But West, who's from Chicago, tells Trump that this strategy is detrimental.

"You stopped the war", he told Mr Trump.

Jesse Watters disagreed, saying that West brought attention to a key issue in the black community.

One fan joked: 'Play him as a right winger he already knows how to play that role'.

"A liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism because they know that we are very proud emotional people", West said. "She was very unfairly treated", Trump said of Johnson. The rapper's statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.
