Pop superstar Justin Bieber waded in political waters on Twitter early Saturday morning, asking President Trump to “let those kids out of cages” despite the fact that the “cages” commonly referenced were set up and utilized by the Obama administration.
The “I Don’t Care” singer made the request as an aside in a tweet thanking Trump for attempting to help rapper A$AP Rocky back to the U.S. after being detained in Sweden.
“I want my friend out.. I appreciate you trying to help him. But while your [sic] at it @realDonaldTrump can you also let those kids out of cages?” Bieber asked in a tweet to his 106 million followers.

Bieber follows a long line of fellow celebrities who have decried the Trump administration for supposedly throwing “kids in cages” despite the fact that the Trump administration played no part in setting up the so-called “cages” at the migrant shelters, which left-wing politicians have inaccurately referred to as “concentration camps.”
