Kanye West said that Apple should build Trump an iPlane

Some of his notable quotes during the controversial visit included some that were of the nonsensical variety, USA Today reported.

What's bitterly ironic about West's praise for Trump is that the president has far more in common with Superman's arch-enemy Lex Luthor.

As a wall of journalists and senior advisers looked on, the president, a consummate showman not accustomed to sharing the camera, seemed to marvel at West's ability to command the room.

"They tried to scare me, my friends, to not wear this hat, but this hat, it gives me power in a way", West said of the red MAGA hat he wore to the meeting.

Seizing the spotlight from the typically centre-stage president, West dropped the F-word, floated policy proposals - and went in for a hug.

"There were people who said Trump would never win", West said in the interview.

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West said, as part of an extended soliloquy that spanned topics from his mental health to prison reform to what kind of plane Trump should fly in.

"This is what our president should be flying in", West said, adding that he wants Apple to help him develop the aforementioned plane.

West also used the opportunity to applaud Mr Trump's efforts with North Korea and said he liked the country.

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, he repeatedly complimented Trump, who nodded in agreement.

After West finished speaking, Trump, who is known for his own stream-of consciousness speaking style, said, "I tell you what - that was pretty impressive".

Tim Naftali, a presidential historian at New York University, said that Trump's meeting with West underscored that, as with other aspects of his presidency, Trump has chosen to make the Oval Office an accessory to his personality.

Trump asked West what he thought of the Oval Office.

"My issue with Kanye West is quite simple - it's that anti-intellectualism simply isn't cool", said commentator Bakari Sellers.

"What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on is, if he don't look good, we don't look good", West said.

Kardashian West also attended a White House roundtable discussion last month focused on the clemency process.

The rapper, who has broken ranks with much of the left-leaning entertainment industry to come out in support of Mr Trump, even said he could be president himself - but "only after" Mr Trump in 2024. The rapper's wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, visited the White House in May.

They were joined by Jim Brown, the legendary former Cleveland Browns running back, as well as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

"I love this guy", West declared in the Oval Office.

West also said the President is on a "hero's journey".
