Kanye West left the normally loquacious president almost speechless.

RAP superstar Kanye West loves Donald Trump and proved it in dramatic fashion on Thursday, leaping from his seat at a White House meeting to hug the president.

The rapper also spoke against stop-and-frisk policing policies, which Trump recently expressed support for.

Sporting his now-signature "Make America Great Again" hat, West made his first trip to the executive mansion to move the needle on several issues close to his heart and, before he deleted it, his social media feed - among them prison reform, gang violence and his hometown of Chicago.

West not only wore one of the caps into the Oval Office but declared: "There's something about when I put on this hat, I feel like Superman".

West's "terrific" wife opened his eyes, Trump said. "That was quite something".

The artist noted during his speech that he was born into a family without a lot of male energy, and he married into a family without a lot of male energy.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something". And we need to stop working on red and blue.

Brown went on behalf of his Amer-I-Can foundation which helps inner-city youth develop life skills - and he told everyone Trump was very good to the whole delegation.

Complaining about prison sentences, West said that people fall through a "trap door" and "end up next to the Unabomber".

But in his Fox interview, Mr Trump said that West's support had transformed African American views of his presidency.

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

"If he don't look good, we don't look good", said West.

Trump said: "That's really nice. He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-- like (me)".

Trump is notoriously unpopular with black Americans and has been accused of being racist.
