Here's What Kanye West Said to President Trump at the White House

At the lunch, "topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

A number of fans speculated that the musician got his initials the wrong way around, but Sportsmail understand that they stand for "West-Kardashian".

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. Violent crime also started declining in 2017 after two years of increases. West has faced regular public criticism from other celebrities over his stance.

On Thursday, West began the much-anticipated sit-down by praising Trump's efforts in North Korea saying, "On day one you solved one of [Obama's] biggest troubles". You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home. When the New York Times' Maggie Haberman first broke the news of the upcoming meeting earlier this week, she reported that West was specifically interested in speaking about improving employment prospects for former convicts and creating jobs in his hometown of Chicago.

West added that black people complained about the "Again" word in Trump's campaign slogan, but stated that, "time is a myth".

In his latest blow to Jeff Sessions, President Trump said he was willing to overrule the attorney general on prison reform. "All we have is today". "He doesn't", Trump told Fox and Friends on Thursday morning. At one point the president asked Mr.

West was joined in the Oval Office by legendary football player and activist Jim Brown.

"Oh! It's good energy in this", he said. "We're going to make certain categories tougher when it comes to drug dealing and other things, but there has to be a reform because it is very unfair right now", he said.

"This was set up as a lunch", he offered.
