Kanye West, who has been incredibly active on Twitter lately, is calling on Colin Kaepernick to meet President Donald Trump for a nice talk.

While that likely won’t happen because neither party would be interested, West made the request anyway in a tweet.

Earlier in the week, West also talked about the potential meeting.”I’ve been calling Colin this morning, reaching him, so I can bring Colin to the White House and we can remove that sons of bitches statement and we can be on the same page,” the rapper told TMZ.

He also wore a “MAGA” hat along with a Kaepernick Nike sweatshirt during a visit to the White House.

Were Kaepernick to meet Trump, he could tell him about how he’s been out of a job since he became a free agent, most likely because of his continued protests during the national anthem.

Trump could then tell Kaepernick how he has been using those protests as talking points to rile up his base anytime his approval rating slips.

It would be a fascinating conversation to hear, but likely one that will never happen.

As of Thursday morning, Kaepernick hadn’t replied and neither had Trump.
