Last week Willie Nelson issued a statement condemning the policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the border between the U.S. and Mexico and it’s still on his mind.
He Tweeted out an invitation to President Trump saying, "Hey Donald this is @WillieNelson. Let's go down to a border detention center together to better understand what's happening down there. Let's talk."
Willie's people confirmed that the Tweet is real.
He sent it through the "Happy Blue Year" Twitter account, which belongs to his wife, Annie.
