WASHINGTON-Kanye West's visit to the White House was pitched as a part of President Trump's commitment to urban revitalization, criminal-justice reform and new workforce-training programs.
Kanye West will visit the White House on Thursday to meet with President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner talk about manufacturing in America, gang violence, prison reform and Chicago violence.
"I love this guy right here!"
But fans are not happy about the social media stunt, which came after the artist made headlines for his outspoken support of United States president Donald Trump on Friday.
Now White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has confirmed the get-together, and shared details about the meeting agenda.
"I have an open mind", Trump assured him.
West said he loved everyone - including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton - but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy".More news: Giants parting ways with OT Flowers
"This hat, it gives me power".
He also proposed to Trump that Apple could develop the "iPlane" - a hydrogen-powered aircraft to replace Air Force One.
"My issue with Kanye West is quite simple - it's that anti-intellectualism simply isn't cool", said commentator Bakari Sellers.
West also had some clarification about his mental health.
Trump said: "That's really nice". West, who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, said the Trump-campaign staple made him "feel like Superman".
The rapper also spoke against stop-and-frisk policing policies, which Mr Trump recently expressed support for. "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".
"There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman", he said, addressing Mr Trump. "When you stood up and said 'George Bush doesn't care about black people, ' Donald Trump cares less than that".
