Prison reform, Chicago violence on menu for Kanye-Trump White House lunch

Kanye West's new album Ye drops today on Apple Music

Once Fox edited the clip, we heard some of West's exuberant 10 minutes in the Oval Office.

The rapper didn't rap. West said, before giving him a huge hug.

Trump said he is willing to "look at it", and said "they have to do something".

"I remember", said Nicolle Wallace, a former staffer at the Bush White House.

Thursday's visit will mark Kanye's second sit-down with Trump - the Chicago, Illinois native previously showed his support for the leader by stopping by his Trump Tower offices in NY shortly after he was elected into office in November, 2016.

Kanye West spent the afternoon bonding with his new best friend, Donald Trump, at the White House.

Watch video of Kanye claiming he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder for yourself in the CBS-obtained video below.

But West, who's from Chicago, tells Trump that this strategy is detrimental. Brown said he liked North Korea; Trump agreed.

"The problem is illegal guns, not legal guns", West responded. Trump brought up his decision to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who'd been incarcerated since 1996 for a drug-related conviction, in early June. He started showing that he actually had power, he wasn't just one of a monolithic voice, that he could wrap people around.

West went full multiverse theory in pitching clemency for Larry Hoover, founder of Gangster Disciples, because "in the alternate universe, I am him".

He repeatedly mentioned the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which outlawed slavery.

"This right here is the iPlane 1", Kanye said. "And this is what our president should be flying in".

"What I need "Saturday Night Live" to improve on or the liberals to improve on", West said, "is if he don't look good, we don't look good". This is our president. "He has to be the freshest, the flyest".

Wearing a Make America Great Again hat "made me feel like Superman", he said.

On Thursday, a storm was still battering the East Coast, but West was busy bonding with Trump over their shared delight in subverting (and offending) crowds.

West replied: "It was from the soul. I just channelled it".

Trump had said that "stop-and-frisk works". Mr. Trump didn't quite know what to say.

"Let's stop worrying about the future, all we have is today", West said, commenting on his own presidential ambitions. West, and gently correcting him on the location of a manufacturing facility.

Rapper Kanye West, left, shows a picture of a plane on a phone to U.S. President Donald Trump during a meeting in the Oval office of the White House on October 11, 2018 in Washington, DC. The two discussed multicultural issues, education and violence in Chicago, West tweeted at the time. Kardashian West, who was a vocal supporter of the Clinton campaign and a critic of Trump's, has since softened her tone. "You made a Superman cape for me, also, as a guy who looks up to you ... looks up to American industry guys, nonpolitical, no bullshit - put the beep on it - however you wanna do it, five-second delay ..." We are both dragon energy.

Lemon blamed Trump, saying the President exploited someone "who needs help".

At least Trump handled West's bad idea. dare I say, gracefully?
