Donald Trump said he has just gotten off the phone with Kanye West. 2019 just keeps getting stranger and stranger.
Donald Trump hasn't had the best of weeks, even by his standards.
Scandal after scandal, controversy after controversy. But this story is as bizarre as any so far.
The 73-year-old US President took to Twitter on Friday night to explain what's been going on in The White House, and it's not really what you'd expect.
He said that he has just spoken with Kanye West about rapper A$AP Rocky’s incarceration, and that he will be calling the "very talented Prime Minister of Sweden" (his words), to see what he can do about helping to get him out of jail.
Take a look at the tweet here:
Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!

Rocky was arrested following an altercation in Sweden, hours before he was due to headline Longitude Festival in Dublin.
Since then, a petition has been signed by over 600,000 people demanding his release.
Maybe Trump himself is one of the signatures...
