The rapper sat across from Trump with retired professional football player Jim Brown to discuss a bevy of topics.
Before they adjourned for a roasted chicken lunch, Kanye stood up, walked over to Trump and gave him a bear hug. West launched into a soliloquy-peppered with occasional curse words-about his own upbringing, violence in Chicago and his unapologetic backing of a president who has found tepid support among other entertainers or black Americans.
Previously, West's reality TV star wife Kardashian visited the White House to press, successfully, for Trump to grant clemency to Alice Johnson, a woman who was sentenced to life in prison for nonviolent drug crimes.
The President said during the White House meeting that he's "totally open" to an alternative to stop-and-frisk.
During today's meeting at the White House, Kanye explained that the headpiece makes him feel like Superman. "This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one's soul to gain power I've ever seen", TIP continues.
Speier told CNN that she thought Trump's meeting with a celebrity during the storm "really speaks to his lack of leadership, his lack of empathy, his lack of recognition of what the priority should be in this country".
West also had some clarification about his mental health.
The rapper also shot down the idea that all black people should support the Democrats.

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".
"Only after him in 2024", West said.
Mr Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a Saturday Night Live show again wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.
"I'm standing in this spot, I love this guy!"
