Professing "I love this guy" and giving President Trump a big hug, rapper Kanye West visited the White House Thursday to discuss his ideas about criminal-justice reform and unifying Americans.

"Trump is on his hero's journey right now", West said, wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat as he was seated across from the president.

"He has to be the freshest, the flyest, have the flyest plane..." But the campaign "I'm With Her" just didn't make me feel, as a guy that didn't get to see my dad all the time... "He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-f***r like me (supporting him)".

On Trump: "Let's stop worrying about the future; all we have is today".

Talking at speed on everything from Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance. Stop and frisk not only has proven more harmful than effective at reducing crime; it has been ruled unconstitutional. "And he might not have expected to have a insane motherf***er like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe, we are going to make America great again".

"A liberal will try to control a Black person through the concept of racism because they know that we're a very proud, emotional people", 'Ye explained.

Holt raked his triple in the next exchange, scoring Xander Bogaerts and Pearce. "Steven (Wright) gets hurt at 4:00 before Game 1". Former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) shined in his first career postseason start, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings.

West said he loved everyone - including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton - but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy".

He also hopes to discuss with Mr. Trump how to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the Chicago area, where Mr.

Wow. If you were wondering which ego was bigger, we have a victor! It was something about when I put this hat on, I made me feel like Superman.

West went full multiverse theory in pitching clemency for Larry Hoover, founder of Gangster Disciples, because "in the alternate universe, I am him". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-- like [me]" as an ally. He's been a great guy, he's a smart cookie, smart. I'm talking specifically about Kid Rock and Kanye West at the White House hanging out with Donald Trump.

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. "And we met, and I just appreciate it very much".

Fans have long speculated that West would run for president in 2020, but he appeared to throw cold water on that notion for now.
