Donald Trump Sought Advice on North Korean And Islamic State From Kid Rock (Apparently)

Musician Kid Rock says he gave advice to Donald Trump during his presidency.

In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Kid Rock has said that Donald Trump sought his advice about the U.S' policy on North Korea and the Islamic State terrorist organisation. In the interview broadcast on Monday, Rock said, "I was there with [Trump] one day when he ended the caliphate."

He continued, "He wanted to put out a tweet…I don't like to speak out of school. I hope I'm not. But…the tweet was, and I'm paraphrasing, but it's like, you know, 'If you ever joined the caliphate, you know, trying to do this, you're going to be dead.'

"He goes, 'What do you think?' [I said] 'Awesome. I can't add any better.' But then it comes out and it's…reworded and more political, to look politically correct. And just, 'be afraid'."

Rock, saying that he and the former President looked at maps together, with Rock saying, 'Am I supposed to be in on this shit?', as a feeling of being out of place on the conversations with Trump.

He recalls Trump asking,"'What do you think we should do about North Korea?'", to which he responded, "I'm like, 'What? I don't think I'm qualified to answer this,'" he recalls.
