During a meeting in front of reporters, the rapper launched into a ten-minute monologue, leaving the usually bombastic Mr Trump looking bemused.

Wearing a Make America Great Again cap, despite receiving heavy criticism from his fellow celebrities for doing so, West swore, unlocked his phone apparently using the password 0000 and insisted he had been misdiagnosed as bipolar and was instead sleep deprived.

He referenced Mr Trump as a father figure who made him feel like “Superman”, adding: “My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home.”
