CNN's Don Lemon equated West's performance to that of a "minstrel show", and said the star was "embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans - but mostly African-Americans".

Meanwhile, West has been steadfast about his support of the president.

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

Kanye West has met Donald Trump in the Oval Office wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat - saying it made him feel like "superman".

He also commented on his childhood.

West's mother and father separated when he was young, so he didn't have a lot of "male energy" in the home growing up, he said Thursday. "It's attractive though." He said that Trump had given him (we assume metaphorically) "a Superman cape" to help do good.

Earlier this year he tried to explain his political views during an appearance on TMZ, which led Kim to attack the media for questioning his mental health.

In an impassioned but sometimes hard to follow 10-minute speech, West talked about the "male energy" of Trump's 2016 campaign, the US relationship with North Korea and his belief that he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder.

But West, who's from Chicago, told Trump that this strategy is detrimental.

West gifted Trump with a Superman cape: When West arrived at the Oval Office, he greeted Trump with a hug before informing those in attendance that he had presented the president with "a Superman cape" to aid him in his crime-fighting efforts. You are tasting a fine wine that has multiple notes to it.

Trump had said that "stop-and-frisk works". He's a genius. I think that the angle he's seeing things from, is about the divisions he sees. "That was quite something".

In a 10-minute discourse in the Oval Office, Mr. West said he is bipolar, and also said he's sleep-deprived.

West is not the first member of his family to meet with Trump. He's a smart cookie.

Trump's campaign slogan during the 2016 presidential election was "Make America Great Again".

"Only after 2024", West said.

West said a lack of "male energy" in the USA and in the Hillary Clinton campaign caused him to support Trump for President.
