Kanye West wants President Donald Trump to fly in a plane designed by Apple.

In a meeting Thursday with Donald Trump, West proposed the iPlane 1, a hydrogen-powered plane that would replace the existing Air Force One. West showed Trump the design on his iPhone X — which appeared to have a lock code of "000000" —  and suggested that Apple be the one to build the plane.

“If he don’t look good, we don’t look good. This is our president," West told reporters Thursday in the Oval Office. "He has to be the freshest, the flyest."

Apple, which does not make planes, declined to comment to Business Insider.
