After White House visit, Kanye West stops by Apple store in Georgetown

Trump and West talked a range of topics including reducing violence in Chicago which is where the rapper grew

Wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, the controversial rapper spoke uninterrupted for around 10 minutes as the US President listened.

West said he loved everyone - including Trump's former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton - but he said he could relate to Trump's "male energy". He also gave some love to first daughter Ivanka Trump.

"(But) This hat, it gives me power", West said.

"President Trump has effectively turned the Oval Office into 'Trump Space.' It's a performance space now", said Naftali, who previously served as the director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.

Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.

But fans are not happy about the social media stunt, which came after the artist made headlines for his outspoken support of U.S. president Donald Trump on Friday.

West also used the opportunity to applaud Mr Trump's efforts with North Korea and said he liked the country.

West recently made waves by wearing Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hat during an appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and delivering a pro-Trump speech after the show went off the air.

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said of West's speech.

Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings.

Donald Trump hosts lunch Thursday for star rapper Kanye West in the latest push to portray his presidency as being on the side of blacks, rather than only the overwhelmingly white voter block behind his surprise election.

Kate Andersen Brower said that West's wife, Kim Kardashian, showed more reverence for the space when she met with Trump there earlier this year.

West how he feels to be in the Oval Office.

West himself has suggested he might be open to wading into politics, including a run for president in 2020.

"Well if he doesn't then he gets overruled by me, because I make the decisions, he doesn't", Trump said.

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

When West touched on the plight of a 68-year-old prisoner he planned to discuss with the president, Trump seemed not to recognize the man's name when it was mentioned.

Mr Trump said he'd been willing to "look at it", adding, "they have to do something".

During a Tuesday night segment on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, CNN commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer went after Kanye West, insulting his intelligence and repeatedly referring to him as a "negro".
