"I brought a GIF with me right here", West said in the Oval Office on Thursday during a meeting as he turned his phone over to the president.

In a preview of the comedian's upcoming interview with CNN's Van Jones, which was actually conducted prior to the White House debacle, Chappelle was asked what he thought about the MAGA-hat-wearing rapper's recent comments attacking the Democratic Party.

Following the Oval Office meeting, the pair were scheduled to speak with Mr Trump as well as his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

West also banged his fist on the Oval Office's famed Resolute Desk and discussed his bipolar diagnosis. "Hurricane Michael screw you, we've got insane to cover", he said.

In a 10-minute speech across from the president, Kanye mused about several topics and then gave Trump a hug. West chipped in to say "Only after, it would have to be 2024". He's a genius. I think that the angle he's seeing things from, is about the divisions he sees.

"Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today", he continued. "A welfare mentality", he said before expressing the belief that black people "get caught up in the idea of racism".

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.

During his visit with Trump, Kanye mentioned Apple in the context of telling Trump he wanted to build an "iPlane" to replace Air Force One.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something".

While we admire the products Apple delivers, it is a awful idea for the phone and computer company to get into the aviation business to create what is arguably the most important plane in the world.

Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously. Him sitting there, being used by the President of the United States. Apparently, when West was done speaking, Trump said, "That was pretty impressive".
