President Trump has a Thursday lunch date with Kanye West

Jimmy Kimmel talks about happy Melania and sad Melania

West credited Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and is encouraging Trump to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.

The New York Times initially revealed the details of West's visit, purportedly to discuss prison reform with Jared Kushner and Chicago job creation with President Trump.

Trump thanked him for the "pretty impressive" tribute, which West said was "from the soul".

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.

In June, Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman for a first-time drug offense whose cause was taken up by celebrity Kanye West's wife, Kim Kardashian West. Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old from Tennessee, had served more than 20 years in prison on drug conspiracy and money laundering charges. "The idea that he is some ambassador to the African-American community or from the African-American community to President Trump is laughable". Eventually, West started gushing about Trump while talking about what it was like to go public with his full support for the president.

Woj: Jimmy Butler trade talks 'collapsed’ between Timberwolves and Heat
Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau , who has personnel input, reportedly had been attempting to broker Butler's return to the team. So far, Minnesota has allowed Butler to stay away in the preseason, presumably as the team works to find a trade for him.

West, Beach Boy Mike Love, B-list singer Kid Rock, ex-football great Jim Brown and Sam Moore of the legendary duo San and Dave were all on hand at the White House as Trump signed the Music Modernization Act, which among other things makes it easier for artists to get paid when their music streams online.

In a conversation that lasted almost an hour, Trump ricocheted from one topic to the next, commenting on everything from Hurricane Michael to the infamous anonymous New York Times op-ed to Bob Woodward's new book.

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.

"People try to scare me into not wearing this hat". Near the end of the interview, Trump also went after his former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, a key player in Woodward's book, saying, "I could tell stories about him like you wouldn't believe". "When he sees that African-American unemployment is the lowest in history, you know people are watching".
