U.S. President Donald Trump Donald has welcomed Kanye West to the White House, and says the rapper "has been a friend for a long time".

The White House 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.

During a Thursday appearance on MSNBC, Washington Post reporter Jonathan Capehart ridiculed President Trump's "laughable" embrace of Kanye West as a spokesman for the African-American community.

West's visit to the White House falls in line with Kushner's efforts at criminal justice reform.

"He's said very nice things about me in the past ... extremely positive things", Trump said. Brown and rapper Kanye West are scheduled to meet with President Donald Trump.

Addressing Mr Trump, he added: "There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman". Reports state that their meeting is scheduled on the same day as of the signing of new legislation that has the potential to benefit Yeezy and his artistic colleagues financially. Others are fond of the meetup, including Fox News.

West said he had been an underdog his entire career, and that drew him to Trump, a man who many felt could never win the presidency.
