Rapper Kanye West made a controversial visit to the White House in October, during which he delivered a nearly 10-minute long monologue concerning a range of issues from the "Superman" energy he said Trump's "Make America Great Again" hat gives him, to his mental health.
West at one point referred to himself as a "motherf---er" during his visit.
"Let's stop worrying about the future. All we really have is today," he said, adding: "Trump is on his hero's journey right now, and he might not have expected to have a crazy motherf---er like Kanye West."
Trump described the rapper's rant as "pretty impressive."
West also attended Trump's signing of the Music Modernization Act at the White House.
Former NFL player Jim Brown
Retired NFL player Jim Brown joined Trump and Kanye West for their October Oval Office sit-down. Brown had used his profile as a world-famous athlete to advocate for civil rights and spearheading initatives to help African-Americans to start their own businesses in the 1960s.
Robert James Ritchie, better known as the musician Kid Rock, attended the October bill signing in his signature rockstar garb and sunglasses.
"This business of music is a pretty dirty business ... but this is a great start to protect songwriters, producers, engineers — the unsung heroes behind many of these songs that go out there," he said of the Act.
Trump welcomed Sam Moore, a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer best known as one-half of the soul and R&B duo Sam & Dave, for the music bill's signing and wished him a happy 83rd birthday.
"He looks good," Trump joked. "83! That means there's a future for us."
Moore praised the president in return.
"When Mr. Bush was in we couldn't get it done. When we had Mr. Obama in, we couldn't get it done. But we got it done with this man," he said.
Mike Love, the Grammy Award-winning cofounder of The Beach Boys who also holds a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, also appeared alongside Trump for the bill's signing.
"People can say what they want, but you've always been a big supporter of some of the best music America's ever made," Love said of Trump.
