Kanye West Says Trump’s MAGA Hat Makes Him Feel Like “Superman”

Mr. Trump, speaking to reporters at the signing of the "Save Our Seas Act" addressing ocean debris Wednesday, said he won't fire Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

President Trump suggested Thursday that Kanye West - who on Thursday delivered a weird, F-bomb-filled rant in the Oval Office - could one day fill his shoes as commander-in-chief.

President Trump typically isn't one to be upstaged - but that wasn't the case Thursday when rapper Kanye West launched into a monologue across from him in the Oval Office, leaving even Mr. Trump almost speechless.

The rapper, who sported a red "Make America Great Again" cap, also reiterated his claim that "they tried to scare me to not wear this hat", as he did during his recent appearance on the season opener of "Saturday Night Live".

"You made a Superman, that's my favourite superhero, you made a Superman cape for me". "That was quite something".

Trump welcomed West to the White House on Thursday afternoon, saying the rapper "has been a friend for a long time". Nike drew criticism last month for featuring Kaepernick in a major marketing campaign for the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" slogan, with some arguing that the brand had aligned itself with a divisive political stance.

That's right: there are four separate cameras on the back of the camera for capturing different types of photos. The primary camera is a 24-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture that handles most of point-and-shoot needs.

When Mr. West stopped his monologue for a moment, the president commented, "I'll tell you what, that was pretty impressive". Trump has publicly criticized Kaepernick and other NFL players for anthem protests and called for the league to impose stiff penalties on them. "Those in the music business say he's a genius, and that's okay with me". Mr. Trump earlier in the week said Chicago should strongly consider implementing a stop-and-frisk program like the one New York City had.

"Let's stop worrying about the future, all we have is today", West said.

"I love this guy right here", West said, walking behind the desk to hug the seated president.

West also mentioned North Korea and said, to Trump, "You stopped the war".

The rap star also turned to politics as national media cameras were rolling inside of the Oval Office.

West ended a September 29 performance of "Saturday Night Live" by delivering an unaired pro-Trump speech that drew catcalls from the audience.
