“[We’re] just friends, just friends … we’ve been friends for a long time,” Trump told photographers, dodging a slew of obvious questions.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise, the Donald has made it clear that he isn’t afraid to speak with anyone whether it’s the leader of Taiwan (questioning the USA’s longstanding policy) or Never-Trumpers like Mitt Romney. Still the meeting with the newly-blonde rap superstar was still a bit of a surprise. Is it too soon to start calling them Donye?
