Kanye West visited the White House on Thursday for a meeting with President Trump.

FOX’s Jon Decker reports from Washington:

Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West in the Oval Office wearing a Make America Great Again hat and defending his support for the President:

(West): “So when I said I like Trump… To like someone who’s liberal, they’ll say, ‘Oh, but he’s racist.’ You think racism can control me?”

West said he and Hall of Fame running back, Jim Brown came to the White House to discuss ways to reduce violence in Chicago:

(West): “The problem is illegal guns. Illegal guns are the problem. Not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms.”

West spoke about bringing manufacturing back to America, his opposition to the president’s call for stop-and-frisk in Chicago and repealing the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery.
