President Trump is signing two bills at the White House Thursday in the Oval Office ahead of his meeting with rapper Kanye West.

"There's a whole lot of people in this country that do give you a lot of credit for everything you've been doing for this country", he said.

The rapper, who sported a red "Make America Great Again" cap, also reiterated his claim that "they tried to scare me to not wear this hat", as he did during his recent appearance on the season opener of "Saturday Night Live". "But the campaign "I'm With Her" did not make me feel like a guy that could play catch with his son", West complained. "I just channelled it", the musician said, adding - to gasps from presidential staff - that Trump "might not have expected to have a insane motherf***** like Kanye West supporting him". "Only after 2024", West added.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, take part in the 95th Annual National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the Ellipse near the White House, in Washington on November 30, 2017.

Trump, who recently touted stop-and-frisk, told West he is willing to talk about other solutions. "That was quite something".

The denuclearization process, which looked so promising when Kim and Trump met in Singapore in June, is now looking stillborn. The pair discussed ending the reclusive state's nuclear weapons program and hostilities between Washington and Pyongyang.

With that, West launched into a almost 10-minute-long speech that the rapper said was "from the soul", according to White House pool reports. "I just channelled it". Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously, and Jared Kushner.

Mr Trump said that "stop-and-frisk works". West also says that many people believe that if someone's Black, then that person has to be a Democrat. He's a smart cookie. "We solved one of the biggest problems". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf**ker like (me)".

"Trump is on his hero's journey right now", Mr. West told reporters during a meeting in the Oval Office.

President Trump hugged rapper Kanye West. "And there are a lot of people that are in a situation like that, and we are actively looking for those situations", Mr. Trump said Wednesday.

One reporter asked West what he wants to see happen in Chicago. "He started showing that he actually had power", West said.
