DailyMail.com Editor-at-large Piers Morgan described on Friday how an 'upbeat' President Trump called him on October 24 and revealed that a prankster impersonating him had been patched through to Air Force One days earlier.
The President and the hoax caller chatted for 'several minutes' about 'all sorts of things'. Trump, unperturbed by the stunt, laughed it off, saying 'isn't that crazy!' then asked Morgan for his advice on how to win the election.
On October 23, Morgan had stared down the camera during an appearance on Fox and Friends and told Trump in a direct appeal that he could still help him win with some key pieces of advice. The President called the next day.
'I was sitting at home and the phone goes, it was the White House switchboard,' Morgan told DailyMail.com on Friday.

'When he came on the phone, he was very upbeat, he was convinced he was going to win,' Morgan recalled.
'I asked him why he'd called and he said, "well I saw you on Fox and Friends." Then he said, "it's bizarre, I thought I'd already spoken to you."
'Someone had rung him on Air Force One, pretending to be me, and they got through to have a conversation of several minutes. He started laughing and said, "can you believe it? How crazy!"
'Unlike most world leaders might react, he thought the whole thing was hilarious,' Morgan said.
