Kanye West Visits White House for Meeting With President Donald Trump

Kanye West Will Join Trump at White House Signing of Music Modernization Act

In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again".

West began the meeting by praising Trump's efforts in North Korea saying, "On day one you solved one of [Obama's] biggest troubles".

Turning to the economy, the rapper said: "We have to bring jobs into America because our best export is entertainment and ideas, but when we make everything in China and not America we are cheating our country".

"I tell you what that was pretty impressive", Trump said.

Mr. Trump is set to meet with West during a working lunch, where the two will discuss prison and sentencing reform. "I just channelled it".

West explained to the New York Times in June why he supports Trump, saying there are many more Trump supporters in Hollywood who are just afraid to come forward. Asked if he would consider campaigning with the rapper, Trump said, "I could see it".

'Austin Powers' actor Verne Troyer's cause of death revealed
It also said he was "a fighter" and had his share of "battles" during his life, "but unfortunately this time was too much". In an appearance on " Jimmy Kimmel Live! " in May, Myers described Troyer as "a great physical comedian".

Watch above, via Fox News. We're talking about thousands and thousands of people. Supporters of West's music have described him as a political sellout. He claimed the two shared "dragon energy".

"I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG".

"I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love".

Trump returned the love at a campaign-style rally in MI in April. "So, it's a great thing, and Kanye West saw that".

"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".
