Kanye West met the POTUS at The White House Thursday, and revealed why he fully supports the Republican Party.

“There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman,” West said, as part of a lengthy monologue that touched on topics such as his mental health to employment, prison reform, and more.

According to CNN, the meeting was to focus on “urban revitalization, workforce training, African-American unemployment, potential future clemencies and crime in Chicago.” Additionally, the President signed the landmark Music Modernization Act, which guarantees increased and faster royalty payments for performers, songwriters and producers.

West has been a proud supporter of Donald Trump since sporting the infamous MAGA hat, and expressing his love for the POTUS, and he recently made waves by donning the controversial piece once more during an appearance on Saturday Night Live, delivering a pro-Trump rant after the show went off the air.

“Let’s stop worrying about the future all we have is today,” Kanye expressed in his lengthy speech. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy (expletive) like (me).”

Additionally, West shared the password to his phone (apparently, 0000), compared his rhetorical style to “fine wine” (“it has complex notes to it”), and also announced that he had been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder, as he was sleep deprived instead.

It’s also worth mentioning that Kanye expressed how he wants President Donald Trump and future POTUS’ to fly in a special “iPlane 1” designed by Apple, to replace the iconic Air Force One.

According to Telegraph journalist James Ticomb, he reports that the image West showed to Trump was a 2012 concept from an industrial designer.

Kanye West was also joined alongside NFL legend Jim Brown, the President’s daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump, and her husband and White House adviser Jared Kushner, during his speech at the Oval Office.

This was West’s second meeting with Trump since the 2016 election, as they previously met at the Trump Tower in December 2016.

Furthermore, Kanye West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, had also been to the White House in recent months to discuss criminal justice reform and the clemency process. The reality star was able to secure a lesser penalty for Alice Marie Johnson, a woman who was serving a life sentence over non-violent drug charges.
