Tweedledee and Tweedledum: Kanye and Trump have lunch at the White House

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for

He continued, "Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today...Trump is on his hero's journey right now". I don't even know if he's going to Trump but I'm having dinner with him Wednesday night and I've been very happy with our relationship.

Seated across from Trump at the famous Resolute Desk, West began the Oval Office meeting - which also included NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner - with a almost 10-minute-long speech that the rapper said was "from the soul", according to White House pool reports. Kanye continued of the former Democratic presidential candidate Trump says he wants locked up.

He went on to show Mr Trump a picture of a "hydrogen-powered airplane" saved on his mobile phone, insisting: "This is what our President should be flying in".

"You know when you work with a creator like Kanye West, you don't get mainstream". The core of Adidas, and Chicago, is the core of middle America, and we have to make middle America strong.

Yeah, Wisconsin. They have 4,000 jobs, people making $53,000 a year, and one of the things we've got to set is, Ford to have the highest design, the dopest cars, the most fantastic - I don't really say dope, I don't say negative words and try to flip them we just say positive, lovely, divine, universal words.

"It was from the soul", West responded. You better play 4D chess with me. West referenced the iconic comic book character again when he discussed his preference for wearing a MAGA hat. "I love this guy right here".

He said he "loves" the president, before hugging him.

West, who has become one of Trump's most outspoken supporters, stirred controversy in an appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" last month when he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat during his performance and delivered a pro-Trump speech to the studio audience. Trump looked alternatively bemused, entertained, baffled, guarded and, yes, maybe even a little nervous all at once.

During a meeting with President Trump, Kanye West delivered animated and wide-ranging remarks on issues from the 13th Amendment to US manufacturing.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the United States population.
