6 extremely surreal moments from Kanye West's meeting with President Trump

"I brought a GIF with me right here", West said in the Oval Office on Thursday during a meeting as he turned his phone over to the president.

The 10-minute rambling address saw West variously discuss his bipolar condition while complaining he was pressured to stop wearing his red "Make America Great Again" hat.

West is one of the president's most high-profile supporters and was invited to a lunch in Washington DC on Thursday to discuss criminal justice reform, manufacturing jobs and gang violence in his hometown of Chicago.

Rapper Kanye West speaks to President Donald Trump and others in the Oval Office of the White House. It was easy to believe from the video, judging by his animated motions while sitting across from President Trump.

West's social media pages show him in a red "Make America Great Again" hat, and he has said he wishes to facilitate conversations between the president and opponents like National Football League free agent Colin Kaepernick.

Fox News notes that "Ray J is a musician who is more known for his role in an infamous 2003 sex tape with West's wife, Kim Kardashian, that was made long before West and Kardashian began their relationship". "You made a Superman cape for me, also, as someone who looks up to you. looks up to American industry guys".

President Donald Trump meets with rapper Kanye West and former National Football League player Jim Brown in the Oval Office of the White House. "We're going to have Apple, an American company, work on this plane".

Trump supports the policy and recently praised it as a solution to gun violence in Chicago. Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

West said he loved everyone - including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton - but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy".

Does rap megastar Kanye West support Donald Trump?

During one pause in West's comments, Mr Trump said: "I tell you what, that was pretty impressive ... that was quite something". 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.

'Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance'. "Nice of you to say that because that's a big thing", Trump responded. "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".

"I love this guy", West declared in the Oval Office.
