The Independent Rapper Kanye West meets with President Donald Trump Thursday in the Oval Office at the White House.

President Trump typically isn't one to be upstaged - but that wasn't the case Thursday when rapper Kanye West launched into a monologue across from him in the Oval Office, leaving even Mr. Trump almost speechless.

West said that many people believe that, if you're black, you have to be a Democrat and said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat.

"Well if he [Jeff Sessions] doesn't [reform the justice system] then he gets overruled by me, because I make the decisions, he doesn't", President Trump said. "That was quite something".

It was a head-scratching afternoon at the White House on Thursday as rapper Kanye West and so many of his opinions descended upon 1600 Penn.to discuss everything from North Korea to bipolar disorder with his "brother" President Trump.

Trump described West as a "smart cookie" who "gets it", and when asked if the 21-time Grammy Award victor could be a future presidential candidate, he replied, "Could very well be". He also said he won't consider running for president "until 2024", instead voicing his support for Mr. Trump.

Joining West, Trump, and Brown at the lunch were Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, White House advisers and Trump's daughter and son-in-law, respectively.

"I didn't even know whether he's going [to see] Trump".

The rapper also spoke against stop-and-frisk policing policies, which Trump recently expressed support for.

"I'm standing in this spot, I love this guy!". Earlier this week, Mr. Trump said there are a lot of people like Johnson and he would like to find them.

"I would love to see, at the Super Bowl, Trump wearing the "Make America Great" hat and Colin wearing the "Make America Great" [hat], showing that we can benefit on this side, and we can benefit on this side, and we can learn how to be malleable in the infinite universe that we are, and the loving beings that we are", Mr. West said.

Kanye's visit follows by several months a similar trip to the White House by his celebrity wife, Kim Kardashian West, who met with Trump on May 30 and persuaded him to grant clemency to Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug charge in Tennessee.

He also described West as a "smart cookie".

West said that there was a lot of "good energy" in the Oval Office.
