1. Kanye began the meeting by praising Trump’s efforts in North Korea, saying, “On day one, you solved one of [Obama’s] biggest troubles. We solved one of the biggest problems.”

2. Regarding the lack of support he’s received from Hollywood regarding his decision to sport Trump’s MAGA hat, Kanye said, “They tried to scare me to not wear this hat — my own friends — but this hat — it gives me power in a way.”

3. “I love Hillary, I love everyone, but the campaign, ‘I’m With Her,’ just didn’t make me feel as a guy — that didn’t get to see my dad all the time — like a guy that can play catch with his son,” Kanye said. “There was something about — when I put this hat on — it made me feel like Superman. That’s my favorite superhero, and you made a Superman cape for me.”

4. “Let’s stop worrying about the future. All we have is today,” Kanye said. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy motherfker like Kanye West [supporting him].”

5. Kanye also brought up his recent and controversial appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” saying, “What I need ‘SNL’ and liberals to improve on is, if he don’t look good, we don’t look good. He has to be the freshest, the flyest, have the flyest planes. He has to look good! When we make everything in China and not America, we’re cheating on our country.”

6. “There’s a lot of things that affect our mental health that put us into this trap door that is the 13th Amendment,” Kanye said, adding that when people fall through this trap door, they “end up next to the Unabomber.” Kanye also suggested we do away with the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, because the number 13 is traditionally unlucky. “We don’t have 13th floors, do we?” he said.

7. Kanye also told Trump and reporters he had been recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Ye claimed it was a misdiagnosis and that he’s merely sleep-deprived.

8. When a reporter asked Ye about his feelings on gun control, he replied, “Illegal guns is the problem, not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms.”

9. “I brought a gift with me,” Kanye said, pulling out his phone to show Trump a photo. “This right here is the iPlaneOne. It’s a hydrogen-powered airplane, and this is what our president should be flying in. Look at this, Jared.” (Twitter also spotted that Kanye’s iPhone passcode is 0000. We’re guessing it won’t be for long.)

10. A reporter asked Trump, “Is [Kanye] a future presidential candidate?” Trump replied, “Could very well be.” Kanye added, “Only after 2024.”

11. Trump later said, “He can speak for me any time he wants. He’s a smart cookie. He gets it.”
