Adidas star Kanye West meets with Trump as Nike backs Kaepernick

It's official: Kanye West has a bad iPhone passcode.

Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning.

Kardashian West, who was a vocal supporter of the Clinton campaign and a critic of Trump's, has since softened her tone. Instead, the company has suggested in the past that users select passcodes with unique significance only they may know. The New York Times initially revealed the details of West's visit, purportedly to discuss prison reform with Jared Kushner and Chicago job creation with President Trump. "That was quite something".

Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a Saturday Night Live show wearing a MAGA hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

Kanye's visit follows by several months a similar trip to the White House Kim Kardashian West, who met with Trump on May 30 and persuaded him to grant clemency to Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug charge in Tennessee. "When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman", he told Trump.

On Thursday, West attributed his support for the president to not having "a lot of male energy" in his home growing up.

On a 68-year-old prisoner whose case he was raising with Trump: "Really, the reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community he started showing that he actually had power, he wasn't just one of a monolithic voice, that he could wrap people around".

The France worldwide has taken a fresh swipe at the Special One over losing the vice-captaincy at Old Trafford. But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the U.S. population.

"You stopped the war", he told Mr Trump.

Trump, for his part, said West was "a smart cookie" and could "very well be" a future presidential candidate. "We're going to make certain categories tougher when it comes to drug dealing and other things, but there has to be a reform because it is very unfair right now", he said. I'ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don't have to believe in all [their] policies. Kanye "could speak for me anytime he wants", he added. He called himself a "crazy motherfucker".

Trump is notoriously unpopular with black Americans and has been accused of being racist.

Mr. West ran around the massive Oval Office desk to give the president a big hug.

During a meeting with President Trump, Kanye West delivered animated and wide-ranging remarks on issues from the 13th Amendment to USA manufacturing.
