A number of Manchester United fans have criticised the club for sharing a photo of Kanye West in the club's gear on Twitter.

President Trump and Kanye West met at the White House on Thursday.

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. Instead, the company has suggested in the past that users select passcodes with unique significance only they may know.

During a Tuesday night segment on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, CNN commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer went after Kanye West, insulting his intelligence and repeatedly referring to him as a "negro".

Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.

Talking at speed on everything from Mr Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance. "That was quite something".

"The campaign "I'm with her" just didn't make me feel, as a guy that didn't get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son", he said.

West's wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, has made two visits to the White House.

Moving on to the topics of schools, West said: "Sometimes people say, 'This kid has ADD [Attention Deficit Disorder], this kid has ADD'". West has in recent days drawn a large amount of criticism for his decision to corner the cast members of "Saturday Night Live" and deliver a pro-Trump speech off camera.

"I love everyone, right?"

Jim Brown has ZERO regrets about the Oval Office meeting today with Donald Trump and Kanye West . saying it was an incredible opportunity and he's thankful to 45.

"It's very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something". I have conversations that basically said that welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat. Later on, when he was asked about characterizations of the president as racist, West said, "As black people we have to take responsibility for what we're doing".

"When Kanye came out a couple months ago, something happened", Trump said.

West, slouched in a chair facing the president, called himself a "crazy mother- (expletive)" and rued the "bull- (expletive)" the president endures. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said as he stared, rapt, at a video replay of West in the Oval Office.
