Hogan Gidley, White House deputy press secretary, said the president would host a "working lunch in the private dining room off the Oval Office" with West and Brown.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump and his guests would discuss potential future clemencies for convicts along with "addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago" and efforts to create jobs for African-Americans.

According to reports, Ye and Recording Academy president Neil Portnow will be in attendance when Trump sign the Music Modernization Act at the White House.

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is going to do much more than grub with President Donald Trump.

National Football League legend Jim Brown also attended the meeting.

Mr Trump said that "stop-and-frisk works". The president said the session "was just set up to be a lunch of two people I like".

"If you look at the employment numbers, if you look at the media, income".

He continued, "What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, or what I need the liberals to improve on - if he don't look good, we don't look good".

He added, "Day one, solved one of his biggest problems". "I think it would be cool to have Trump factories", he suggested. He's a smart cookie.

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump disembark from Air Force One upon arrival at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in Helsinki, July 15, 2018, on the eve of a summit in Helsinki between the US President and his Russian counterpart.

"I love this guy right here!"

A few days ago, Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted reacted to news about his brand ambassador Kanye West supposedly meeting up with Trump in 48 hours.

The president asked Mr. West how it felt to be sitting in the Oval Office.

The president didn't respond to that idea in front of reporters. "He started showing that he actually had power", West said.
