Kanye: 'Trump hat made me feel like Superman'

Trump on administration officials he doesn't trust: 'We'll weed them out'

President Trump suggested Thursday that Kanye West - who on Thursday delivered a freakish, F-bomb-filled rant in the Oval Office - could one day fill his shoes as commander-in-chief.

West credits Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and is encouraging Trump to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.

Following West's statement, Mr Trump said: "I tell you what that was pretty impressive".

The White House has said they will talk about manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, where West grew up.

When West declared in 2015 he would run for president in 2020 during a 2015 VMAs acceptance speech, Trump, then just a presidential candidate, was not fazed, and welcomed the competition.

Trump also defended West as a "nice guy" and "actually a different kind of person than people think".

"God, I wish I could get through to the 52 percent of white women who put Trump in office, but they're too far gone, so instead I am looking to young people", Sarah Silverman said.

Wearing a Make America Great Again hat, the pop star said: "There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman".

Other music industry representatives that will attend the signing include Neil Portnow, the Recording Academy CEO, RIAA president Mitch Glazier, and vocal Trump supporter Kid Rock.

"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".

Trump spoke about the meeting during a Wednesday interview with Shannon Bream on Fox News.

Trump also returned the accolades tweeting in April, "Kanye West has performed a great service to the Black Community - Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in Decades - Legacy stuff".
