President Trump lavished praise on Kanye West hours before a meeting at the White House with the rapper who has become one of his most outspoken supporters.

“I like him a lot,” Trump said in a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning. “He’s been a friend of mine. I’ve known him for a long time. He’s a very different kind of a guy — I say that in a positive way. But he is a different kind of a guy. Those that are in a the music business say that he is a genius. And that’s ok with me because as far as I’m concerned he is.”

the most recent Gallup poll, Trump’s job approval rating stands at 43 percent, while 53 percent disapprove. The survey showed just 10 percent of African Americans approve of the job Trump is doing.

When asked whether he would consider campaigning with West, Trump sounded excited about the idea.

“I could see it,” the president said. “I could see it. ”

Trump also bragged that he has “so many” black athletes supporting him because of the low U.S. unemployment rate among African Americans — an economic trend that began under former President Barack Obama. The president also suggested that his detractors in Hollywood criticize him in public but actually support him at the polls.

“Those people in Hollywood that you hear about, even the ones that do a little talking because they think it’s cool, they vote for Trump,” he said. “I’ve heard so many of them vote for Trump. They get in that booth, they look around and they press the Trump sticker. They do.”
