Trump, MAGA Hat, Racism, More

Trump, MAGA Hat, Racism, More

It's official: Kanye West has a bad iPhone passcode.

As well as a hand full of reporters, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and senior advisor, was also in attendance, and daughter Ivanka will be joining them for lunch. An earlier statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the pair was scheduled to discuss topics such as prison reform, manufacturing jobs, jobs for former convicts, and reducing gun violence in Chicago, West's home city, over lunch.

West also told those assembled that his red "Make America Great Again" hat makes him "feel like Superman".

Mr Trump was asked by a journalist if West could be a future presidential candidate, and the president replied: "Could very well be". "That was quite something".

In a almost 10-minute-long speech in the Oval Office, West said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat, and said he has felt pressure to be a Democrat because he is black.

Trump told Fox and Friends Thursday: "He's a different kind of guy and that's OK with me".

The ability of the Russian-American crew to return safely after the latest mishap drew relief from senior Russian officials. The Soyuz MS-10 rocket had four boosters strapped to its central core.


West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian, who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year. "So when I said I'm like Trump to someone that's liberal they'll say, 'Oh, he's racist.' You think racism can control me?"

He also revealed he had been diagnosed - wrongly, he said - with bipolar disorder.

And Mr. West did indeed talk about that-a little. "I love Hillary, I love everyone right, but the campaign "I'm with her" just didn't make me feel as a guy ... that could play catch with his son".

"I felt that I knew people who voted for Trump that were celebrities that were scared to say that they liked him", he said. "I just channeled it", the musician said, adding - to further gasps - that Trump "might not have expected to have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West supporting him".

"At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you. now, I'm ashamed to have ever been associated with you", T.I. added. I have conversations that basically said that welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat.

Trump, who has had low approval ratings from African-Americans, often links the support of West and Brown to his administration's relationship with the black community. "This hat, it gives me power in a way".

West said he wanted to "abolish the trap door called the 13th Amendment", because, he said, when the amendment was written it was illegal for blacks to read.
