After White House visit, Kanye West stops by Apple store in Georgetown

Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted told CNBC earlier this week that West has been a "fantastic ambassador" for the company, though he admitted he was unaware that the rapper meant to meet with Trump for lunch.

West and Trump were set to discuss a range of issues during his White House visit - including manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang crime and reducing violence in Chicago, where the A-lister grew up.

And he dropped an f-bomb in the process, saying that Trump may not have expected "a insane -- like Kanye West" to support him, according to AP reporter Jonathan Lemire.

Then, according to Jenkins, West announced he made a hat for Trump that says "Make America Great" sans the "again" - and that Trump wore it.

Kanye West not only gifted President Trump with a pair of Yeezy's in a size 12, but he also gave him a custom "Make America Great" hat, leaving out the "Again" in Trump's campaign slogan, TMZ reports. The commutation came as a result of the influence of Kim Kardashian West, Kanye's wife, who visited the White House to discuss the case with the president.

On "male energy": "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy". "This Adidas thing made me a billionaire".

Alabama is also with freshman defensive back Jalyn Armour-Davis, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last month. By halftime, he had an insane stat line: 10-of-11 passing for 334 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.


"That was from the soul", Kanye responded.

Around that same time, Kanye explained that he made his widely publicized comments about former U.S. President George W. Bush not caring about Black people because he was programmed to do so. "I just channelled it", the musician said.

Earlier Thursday, Trump told "Fox and Friends" Thursday that West is "a different kind of guy and that's OK with me".

The conversation began with an exchange on North Korea among Trump, Brown and West. Trump said the region was headed for war before he took over, and West commended him for stopping it.

TMZ obtained photos of Trump in the Make America Great hat, alongside a beaming Kanye, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

In the Oval Office on Thursday, West - who has a new album coming out - again flirted with the idea of a presidential run, but "only after 2024".

At one point, Kanye said, "Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today".
