"I love Hillary. I love everyone, but the campaign "I'm With Her", just didn't make me feel as a guy, who didn't get to see his dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son".

Here's what West said: "We feel stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city".

At least Trump handled West's bad idea. dare I say, gracefully?

Trump said Kanye "could very well be" future presidential material, to which the rapper said he would not want to get in the way of the Republican's 2020 reelection.

Kanye West has launched into an expletive-filled rant in the Oval Office as he lavished praise on US President Donald Trump.

West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, has been to the White House twice in recent months to discuss criminal justice reform and the clemency process.

Trump and West sat down for a private dining room lunch of caprese salad with balsamic glaze along with roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes and sautéed asparagus.

And not only did he greet Trump with a big, affectionate cuddle, he also dubbed himself a "crazy motherfucker". "She was very unfairly treated", Trump said of Johnson.

West asked Trump to pardon Larry Hoover, the alleged founder of a notorious Chicago street gang who's serving six life sentences in a federal supermax prison in Colorado.

These are the games Mourinho's team will be judged in. "What I asked the players is to give absolutely everything". Magpies midfielder Matt Ritchie said: "Us as players are the only people who can get us out of this".

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", the president said. "I love this guy", West said.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something". The New York Times initially revealed the details of West's visit, purportedly to discuss prison reform with Jared Kushner and Chicago job creation with President Trump.

"I'm totally open. If we can do it a different way, Kanye, I'm totally open but they all - we all agree that we have to do something", Trump said. "I just channeled it".

Seizing the spotlight from the typically centre-stage president, West dropped the F-word, floated policy proposals - and went in for a hug.

"People expect that if you're Black, you have to be Democrat", West said, rejecting the "control of people through the concept of racism".

"We kill each other more than police officers". West said it would be "only after 2024".

On the menu for Thursday's lunch is caprese salad with balsamic glaze, roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes, and sautéed asparagus.

West also argued that Trump deserved more respect, saying: "if he don't look good, we don't look good".
