"I had the balls to put on this hat", the 41-year-old artist said in defending the red "Make America Great Again" hat that he wore for his meeting.
"Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today", West said. "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".
Mr. West said that he didn't have "a lot of male energy" in his home due to his parents' separation and noted that he is married into a family of strong women-including his wife, Kim Kardashian.
The President then reportedly said after Kanye's speech, "He can speak for me any time he wants. he's a smart cookie".
Kanye West has launched into an expletive-filled rant in the Oval Office as he lavished praise on US President Donald Trump.
This was West's second meeting with Trump since the 2016 election; he previously visited with the then-President-elect at Trump Tower in December 2016.
Apparently, during the Presidential campaign, Kanye felt more connected to the Donald just because Clinton's slogan was 'I'm with Her'.
Sitting next to football legend Jim Brown and a lawyer for Gangster Disciples founder Larry Hoover, West launched into almost 10 minutes of largely uninterrupted remarks before taking questions from the reporters in the room. "And that's not saying that the police officers are not an issue.because they are in a position of power".
West concluded the entertaining news conference by declaring, "I love this guy right here", and giving the president a hug. It's safe to say T.I. won't be tending shop with Kanye West anytime soon.
"He's a different kind of guy and that's OK with me".
West, who received harsh criticism for suggesting slavery was a "choice," told Trump that "we have to release the love (throughout) the country. we don't have the reparations but we have the 13th Amendment".
Looking at Trump, West added: "You made a Superman cape for me".
Here are some of the things West talked about at the Trump press conference.
West also discussed clemency for Larry Hoover, who is serving life in prison in a Supermax facility, calling him a "beacon" and "a living statue". Gallup also found just 10 percent of African-Americans approve of the job Trump is doing.
