WASHINGTON - Following his White House visit along with lunch with President Donald Trump, rapper Kanye West made an appearance at an Apple store in Georgetown Thursday afternoon.
As West was wearing a U.S. Postal Service jacket vest, many inside and outside of the store were seen pulling out their phones taking photos and videos of him.
At one point, West asked to make a “keynote” speech, which he ended up doing on top of a display table in the store.
Jack Jenkins, a reporter for the Religion News Service, was there for Yeezy's visit to the store and shared his experience on Twitter. In one post, Jenkins wrote that West told people inside that he made a hat for Trump that said, "Make America Great" without the "again" in it, and Trump ended up wearing it.

“...It hurts us as people, specifically black people, the idea, because we say, was America ever great for us? So we made a updated hat that said, lmake America great, and Trump wore the hat so he is open to adjusting and listening” pic.twitter.com/nKgkDUKtga— Caroline Kelly (@caroline_mkelly) October 11, 2018

Apple Store employees wouldn’t comment on why Kanye was there, except one under his breath.— Jack Jenkins (@jackmjenkins) October 11, 2018
Me: “Why was Kanye here?”
Him: “Man, I think just being extra.”
