Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning.

"People expect that if you're black you have to be Democrat", he said.

Rapper Kanye West, also known as Ye, is headed to the White House to meet with President Trump. He praised Trump for being the "freshest", the "flyest" president of the US.

"He might not expect to have a insane motherf***r like Kanye West support him", West told those in the Oval Office. He's been a great guy, he's a smart cookie, smart.

Mr. West said his top priority was to dissuade Mr. Trump from promoting "stop-and-frisk" police tactics in Chicago.

Right now, you gave me the heart to go to Adidas.

He said he "loves" the president, before hugging him. West said it would be "only after 2024".

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

"Instead of typing in a bad passcode you have to remember, or a good passcode you're going to forget, you just look at the device, and it will, probably, only unlock for you".

The rapper referred to his own Oval Office opus as "a fine wine", adding "it has complex notes to it".

"I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change", he said in the since-deleted tweets.

"Trump is on his hero's journey right now".
