"He's Kanye West, so all these things about [Trump] calling people "dogs" and saying people "coming from s**thole countries" [can be overlooked]".
In the past, West has been an outspoken critic of politicians.
At the end of West's lengthy, sometimes-hard-to-follow dialogue, even Trump seemed at a loss.
West was joined in the Oval Office by legendary football player and activist Jim Brown.
" What I need SNL [Saturday Night Live] to improve on, or the liberals to improve on, is, if he don't look good, we don't look good". A "smart cookie". Which is pretty underwhelming considering you've just branded yourself a insane motherfucker.
The rapper referred to his own Oval Office opus as "a fine wine", adding "it has complex notes to it".
West credited Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and is encouraging Trump to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.
West said they need to create factories. "Illegal guns [are] the problem, not legal guns, we have the right to bear arms", he said.
This was West's second meeting with Trump since the 2016 election; he previously visited with the then-President-elect at Trump Tower in December 2016.
Kanye West not only gifted President Trump with a pair of Yeezy's in a size 12, but he also gave him a custom "Make America Great" hat, leaving out the "Again" in Trump's campaign slogan, TMZ reports. So, there's theories that there's infinite amounts of universe, and there's alternate universe.
At the lunch, West will be accompanied by black National Football League legend Jim Brown. Brown, who has supported the president in the past, barely got a word in. It is not actually clear if his table climb was approved by Apple Store staff or if he just did it regardless.
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.
Kid Rock's presence is hardly a surprise, but Kanye's continued stanning of the president is at turns upsetting and wildly disappointing.
Trump and West previously appeared together shortly after Trump's 2016 election in the lobby of Trump Tower in NY.
His statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.
He made the comment as he met with rapper and producer Kanye West at the White House.
"I love this guy right here", the serial Grammy-winning artist declared in the Oval Office, before taking the president in his arms. It's lovely though! But there's times where, you know, it's something about - I love Hillary.
Kardashian West also attended a White House roundtable discussion last month focused on the clemency process. It is also protecting companies like Spotify from lawsuits. In exchange, the services will gain protections against lawsuits.
It was, in the president's words, "Quite something".
