"My dad and mom separated, so I did not have lot of male energy in my home", the husband of Kim Kardashian told Trump as a crowd of journalists recorded the expletive-laden moment.

He went on to show Mr Trump a picture of a "hydrogen-powered airplane" saved on his mobile phone, insisting: "This is what our President should be flying in". Trump said he was open to other ideas.

West said that he brought a newly designed hat that simply stated: "Make America Great".
