Trump's stunned silence as Kanye rants in White House

Kanye West has met Donald Trump in the Oval Office wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat - saying it made him feel like "superman".

The superstar rapper spoke at length in front of dozens of reporters and photographers - and his wide-ranging, off-the-cuff address felt at times like something of a rant.

He revealed that his friends had tried to scare him into not wearing the MAGA hat - popularised during the president's campaign in 2016.

Describing how he looked up to Mr Trump, he hugged the president and said: "I love this guy."

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.

The music mogul also took the president to task over "stop-and-frisk" policing, where large numbers of people are temporarily detained, questioned and sometimes searched for drugs and weapons.

Despite being deemed unconstitutional because of its impact on minorities, Mr Trump has previously said "stop-and-frisk works" and urged Chicago to adopt the strategy.

After West warned "stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city", the president said he would be willing to "look at it".
