Watch the wild footage from Kanye West's Oval Office meeting with Trump

NEW YORK- FEBRUARY 22 Singer Monica visits BET's '106 & Park' at BET Studios

Trump said at one point that West "can speak for me any time he wants".

Told by reporters that Mr. Trump had recently expressed support for stop-and-frisk, Mr. West said to the president, "I didn't mean to put you on blast like that, bro".

West also proposed that Mr Trump get rid of Air Force One and purchase a hydrogen-powered aeroplane. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-fucker like (me)". West dined on roasted chicken and fingerling potatoes over lunch with Trump, Jared Kushner and Ivanka, fellow musician Kid Rock and Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown.

West attempted earlier this month to broker a meeting between Kaepernick and Trump, urging the former National Football League star to "speak with the president to tell him your experience directly". West also says that many people believe that if someone's Black, then that person has to be a Democrat.

Pool reporters were allowed into the Oval Office for a photo op, where West, chatting with Trump as the president sat at the Resolute Desk, talked about his support for the pres.

Fox News warned its viewers Thursday that the network could not play the entire audio of Kanye West's visit to the White House, because he let a few expletives fly.

The president asked Mr. West how it felt to be sitting in the Oval Office.

West concluded the entertaining news conference by declaring, "I love this guy right here", and giving the president a hug.

The 10-minute diatribe he delivered while face-to-face with the president including a series of curses, his cellphone's [no longer] secret code and hints at a future in politics.

What could help Chicago, West said, was the opening up of industries and tax breaks.

On a 68-year-old prisoner whose case he was raising with Trump: "Really, the reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community he started showing that he actually had power, he wasn't just one of a monolithic voice, that he could wrap people around". Supporters of West's music have described him as a political sellout.
