Kanye West Pitches ‘iPlane 1’ to President Trump as Air Force One Replacement

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

No more parties on Air Force One.

Kanye West, while surrounded by reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday, pitched President Trump on “iPlane 1,” a hydrogen-powered replacement for Air Force One, accompanied by mock renderings of the new plane on his iPhone.

“We want to start with this — I brought a gift with me right here. This right here is the iPlane 1. It’s a hydrogen-powered airplane, and this is what our president should be flying in,” West said. “We’re going to have Apple, an American company, work on this plane.”

West, while wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, leaned over the president’s desk to show him a picture of iPlane 1 — which, just for clarification, wasn’t mentioned at Apple’s product launch last month.

“We’ll get rid of Air Force One,” Trump, turning to reporters, apparently joked. “Can we get rid of Air Force One?”

West, while rushing to unlock his phone, accidentally revealed his passcode: 0-0-0-0-0-0. He also gave Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, a peek.

The moment was captured by Bloomberg, which you can watch below.

West’s appearance followed an already music-themed day for the president, after signing legislation earlier on Thursday aiming to revamp how artists and managers are paid by streaming services.
