Donald Trump hosts lunch Thursday for star rapper Kanye West in the latest push to portray his presidency as being on the side of blacks, rather than only the overwhelmingly white voter block behind his surprise election.
He also criticized the left for their attacks on police officers.
West also argued that Mr Trump deserved more respect, saying, "If he don't look good, we don't look good".
Rapper Kanye West met Thursday with Donald Trump, telling the President in an Oval Office meeting before reporters why he supports the Republican.
On voting for Trump: "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy". But it's hot! It gives me, it gives me power in a way.

During the AL wild-card game last week, another Yankees fan dumped a beer on an Oakland A's fan at Yankee Stadium. Severino's line in three-plus innings of a 16-1 Yankees loss: six runs on seven hits and only two strikeouts.
West spoke to reporters for almost 10 minutes in the Oval Office.
Kanye disclosed to TMZ that he only brought one "Make America Great" hat for Trump but pledged that he'd start wearing one instead of his infamous "MAGA" hat. He walked over to Trump and held out his phone, to show him a picture of what he said was "the i-plane 1 - a hydrogen-powered airplane -this is what the president should be flying in".
"I had the balls to put on this hat", the 41-year-old artist said in defending the red "Make America Great Again" hat that he wore for his meeting.
The filmed interaction between West and Trump was mostly the rapper speaking and the president sitting back silently, allowing West's thoughts to flow out loud.
'You a** kissing and bootlicking on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE! Here's what West said: "We feel stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city".
"I love this guy right here". I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. "I'm just going to be honest and I may get in a lot of trouble for it". The reason 'Ye chose to ditch the "again" is an acknowledgment to the fact that America still needs to put in some work. He elaborated: "Time is a myth".
