Musician and fashion designer Kanye West had lunch with President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, where they talked in front of reporters about a variety of topics including West's contract with Adidas.
Invited to speak by Trump, West launched into a long, winding discourse, occasionally using profanity and slapping the Resolute Desk for emphasis.
West said the president had inspired him to sign a shoe design contract with Adidas. "You gave me the heart to go to Adidas," he told Trump. "This Adidas thing made me a billionaire."
