West has made headlines today about his behavior during the sit-down. which included a couple classic Kanye rants, a heap of Trump praising and even a hug between the two men.

"It was from the soul". Trump, who recently touted stop-and-frisk, told West he is willing to talk about other solutions.

In a almost 10-minute-long speech in the Oval Office, West said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat, and said he has felt pressure to be a Democrat because he is black.

West's visit comes after his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, successfully lobbied the president to commute the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, who had been convicted on drug charges. "So we are looking for - we are actively looking for other situations exactly like that".

He continued, "What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, or what I need the liberals to improve on - if he don't look good, we don't look good".
