Kanye West, with his weird White House meeting Thursday with President Donald Trump, gave fresh proof that the line between celebrity and politician is truly no longer a thing.

Pool reporters were allowed into the Oval Office for a photo op, where West, chatting with Trump as the president sat at the Resolute Desk, talked about his support for the pres.

However, in front of reporters, West went off on a litany of subjects, including how his "Make America Great Again" hat makes him feel like Superman.

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

A prominent Trump supporter, West has also expressed support for Kaepernick, the NFL free agent who in 2016 became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

Over a lunch of caprese salad and roast chicken, Gidley said discussion would be centered on "President Trump's historic work to benefit all Americans". He also said he won't consider running for president "until 2024", instead voicing his support for Mr. Trump.

The president is set to sign the Music Modernization Act during West's White House visit.

"I didn't even know whether he's going [to see] Trump".

Trump said he is willing to "look at it", and said "they have to do something".

"We've got to open up the whole conversation", West said, before blaming liberals for trying to "control a black person through the concept of racism".

After he finished, The president concluded, "He can speak for me any time he wants. he's a smart cookie".

The rapper, who is from Chicago, also urged Mr Trump to abandon stop-and-frisk policing.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

National Football League legend Jim Brown also attended the meeting.

Last month, West appeared on "Saturday Night Live" wearing the red MAGA hat and promoting Trump.

The president asked Mr. West how it felt to be sitting in the Oval Office.
