West wore a Make America Great Again cap as he spoke to Trump in front of reporters, telling them the commander-in-chief gave him a “Superman cape” to help him “do good”.
Oh, and he also gave away his iPhone password by typing it out on live TV – it’s 000000 in case you were wondering.

And if that wasn’t enough, he also swore.
Kanye just said “motherf***er” in the Oval Office. Per WH pool.

He said: “What I need Saturday Night Live and the liberals to improve on is if he don’t look good, we don’t look good.
“This is our President. He has to be the freshest, the flyest, the flyest planes, the best factories and we have to make our core be empowered.
“We have to bring jobs into America.”

He went on to say that “we are cheating on our country” by “making everything in China, not America”.
The rapper also ruled out a presidential bid “until 2024”, instead voicing his support for Trump, saying he “loves” the president, before hugging him.
After West finished speaking, Trump said: “That was quite something.”
Kanye has drawn fire from other celebrities over his support of Trump, the former reality TV star currently looking ahead to congressional elections on Nov. 6 and his own re-election campaign in 2020.
The Republican president has advocated prison reform and said he was open to changes in sentencing guidelines, an issue that divides the Republican Party between “law and order” hardliners and moderates.
“There are people in jail for really long terms,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “We do need reform. And that doesn’t mean easy. We’re going to make certain categories tougher, when it comes to drug dealing and other things.
“It’s very unfair to African-Americans it’s very unfair to everybody. And it’s also very costly.”
