Donald Trump’s presidency has been unconventional from the moment he was voted in and things got even stranger last week when Kanye West paid a visit to the Oval Office.
The award-winning rapper and producer is an outspoken supporter of President Trump and gave the Republican a few things to think about, including cars.
Fresh off recent visits to Detroit, West told President Trump that Ford should be producing the “dopest cars.”
“One of the things we gotta set is Ford to have the highest design, the dopest cars, the most amazing — I don’t really say dope. I don’t say negative words and try to flip them. We just say positive, lovely, divine, universal words. So the fly-est, freshest, most amazing car.”
West’s vision for the transportation industry doesn’t start and end with Ford, either. The businessman went on to show President Trump an image of a hydrogen-powered airplane which he thinks should replace Air Force One.
“And what we want to start with is … I brought a gift with me right here,” he said while showing Trump an image on his phone.
“This right here is the iPlane I. It’s a hydrogen-powered airplane, and this is what our president should be flying in.”
Ford isn’t thought to have any interest in venturing into the world of hydrogen-powered planes but in Kanye’s world, it seems there’s nothing stopping Ford and Apple coming together to revoluzione air travel.
Responding to West’s statements with The Detroit Free Press, Ford communications vice president Mark Truby took everything in his stride.
“Well, it’s like we always say, you can’t spell fresh, fly and dope without Ford,” he said.
