But fans are not happy about the social media stunt, which came after the artist made headlines for his outspoken support of United States president Donald Trump on Friday.

CNN host Don Lemon has attacked Kanye West with racially charged remarks, saying the music star's appearance at the White House was "a minstrel show".

So we made an updated hat that said, 'I Make America Great, ' and Trump wore it so he's open to adjusting and listening'.

Trump and West talked a range of topics including reducing violence in Chicago, which is where the rapper grew up.

West's social media pages show him in a red "Make America Great Again" hat, and he has said he wishes to facilitate conversations between the president and opponents like National Football League free agent Colin Kaepernick.

Kanye also said that he told Trump he was going to create a factory in Chicago called Larry's - a homage to Gangster Disciples leader, Larry Hoover - where he'll hire ex-inmates to make his "Make America Great" hat as well as other items. "This hat gives me power in a way", the rapper and entertainer said.

As a wall of journalists and senior advisers looked on, the president, a consummate showman not accustomed to sharing the camera, seemed to marvel at West's ability to command the room.

Mr Trump joked: "We could get rid of Air Force One".

"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him".
