Kanye West has met Donald Trump in the Oval Office wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat – saying it made him feel like “superman”.
He revealed that his friends had tried to scare him not to wear the MAGA hat, popularised during the president’s campaign in 2016.
West also proposed that Mr Trump get rid of Air Force One and purchase a hydrogen-powered aeroplane.
Turning to the economy, the rapper said: “We have to bring jobs into America because our best export is entertainment and ideas, but when we make everything in China and not America we are cheating our country.”
After several minutes of silence and listening intently, the president said: “I tell you what that was pretty impressive, folks… that was quite something.”
West and Trump were set to discuss a range of issues during his White House visit – including manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang crime and reducing violence in Chicago, where the A-lister grew up.
