Kanye West, one of President Trump's most famous and vocal supporters, met with the president at the White House on Thursday to discuss matters including prison reform and gang violence.
West then launched into his startling monologue.
Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings. But West isn't the only star at the White House Thursday.
"He's said very nice things about me in the past ... extremely positive things", Trump said. In addition, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said the conversation will be centered on Trump's work to benefit all Americans, including urban revitalization, the creation of Opportunity Zones, new workforce training programs, employment, the creation of manufacturing jobs, potential future clemencies, massive violent crime surge in Chicago and ideas from meetings with African-American pastors.
Addressing Mr Trump, he added: "There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman".
West launched into his 10-minute soliloquy that touched on his decision to wear the MAGA hat on the set of "Saturday Night Live", his bi-polar diagnosis and being part of the extended Kardashian family.
"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody". Others are fond of the meetup, including Fox News.
