The singer and rapper, who supported Trump during his presidential campaign and tenure, has alleged the former US president once asked him for help devising tweets in relation to North Korea and the fall of IS in 2019.
“I was there with [Trump] one day when he ended the caliphate,” Rock said to Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an interview broadcasted yesterday.
“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 also claimed that at one point Trump had asked him what he should do about North Korea.
“‘What do you think we should do about North Korea?’ [Trump] said. I’m like, ‘What? I don’t think I’m qualified to answer this,’” he recalled.
