And he dropped an f-bomb in the process, saying that Trump may not have expected "a insane -- like Kanye West" to support him, according to AP reporter Jonathan Lemire.

As a wall of journalists and senior advisers looked on, the president, a consummate showman not accustomed to sharing the camera, seemed to marvel at West's ability to command the room. He also gave some love to first daughter Ivanka Trump.

He said his "Make America Great Again" hat gives him power. He was fresh off a Saturday Night Live performance two weeks ago that included another multi-minute spiel about how much he worships the president. West said, before giving him a huge hug.

"That was quite something", Trump said at the end West freewheeling soliloquy.

Rapper Kanye West speaks during a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval office of the White House on October 11, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Talking at speed on everything from Mr Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance.

Wearing his Make America Great Again hat in the Oval Office, 'Ye proclaimed his admiration for the controversial president before he told him about his purported misdiagnosis.

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said, when West was more or less done. He allowed me to be invited to his territory, he treated us beautifully, and he shared some thoughts, and he will be open to talking when I get back to him.

West was joined in the Oval Office by legendary football player and activist Jim Brown. After a quick lunch, Trump and Kanye will probably sit down to hash out West's 2024 campaign strategy, because that's where all this is really headed, isn't it? Ms. Kardashian has been working with administration officials on prison reform and helped to convince Mr. Trump earlier this year to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who served more than two decades in federal prison after being convicted on nonviolent drug charges.

"Let me ask you this question", Trump said in a level voice.

West bragged about having "the balls to put on this hat" when he appeared on Saturday Night Live, adding, "What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, the liberals to improve on - if he don't look good we don't looks good, this is our president!" pointing to Trump.

Kardashian West also attended a White House roundtable discussion last month focused on the clemency process.

"Oh, it is good energy in this", West replied, perhaps invoking his claim, before the meeting, that he ad Trump understand one another because they both possess something he called "dragon energy".
