"I Love This Guy": Rapper Kanye West Hugs Donald Trump

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West stand together in the lobby at Trump Tower

Lemon blamed Trump, saying the President exploited someone "who needs help". The rapper had previously spoken out about his bipolar disorder, but told Trump on Thursday that was a misdiagnosis and that West is instead just sleep-deprived.

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West said, as part of an extended soliloquy that spanned topics from his mental health to prison reform to what kind of plane Trump should fly in.

The event was billed as a lunch at the White House to discuss prison reform, jobs for African-Americans and Chicago violence.

West - best known as Kanye but recently stated that he wants to be known as Ye - is one of the mould-breaking president's more unusual supporters.

West said that many people believe that, if you're black, you have to be a Democrat and said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat.

West said the president had inspired him to sign a shoe design contract with Adidas.

West also proposed that Mr Trump get rid of Air Force One and purchase a hydrogen-powered aeroplane. "You made a Superman - that's my favorite superhero".

"You are tasting a fine wine", West said, praising himself.

A sonic boom is a sound associated with the shock waves from an aircraft or vehicle traveling faster than the speed of sound. LZ-4 is built on the former site of Space Launch Complex 4W, from which Titan rockets were previously launched.


On Thursday, West attributed his support for the president to not having "a lot of male energy" in his home growing up. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West's support and best believe, we are going to make America great".

West and Trump have a friendship that goes back to before the 2016 presidential election.

During one pause in West's comments, Trump said: "I tell you what that was pretty impressive".

West accuses black people of being "caught up" in racism: Thirteen years after his jaw-dropping declaration that "George Bush doesn't care about black people", during a live telethon dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, West says he fell prey to a "victimized mentality".

West responded, "I like the North Korea".

"I love Hillary, I love everyone, right. There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman". "I just channeled it", West said. Trump said last week Chicago should adopt the practice to combat high crime and murders in the city, but he told West "I'm open-minded, I'm here".

His statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.

"We need prototypes so we can start working again", he said.
