Canseco tweeted the proposal Wednesday night, saying that the president needs a "bash brother" for Chief of Staff and that he had a secret reorganization plan.

Hey little buddy @realDonaldTrump u need a bash brother for Chief if Staff. Got a secret reorg plan already. Also worried about you looking more like a Twinkie everyday. I will buff you up daily workouts. DM me. #yeswecanseco— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) December 13, 2018
The former slugger also said that he could help the president with his fitness: "I will buff you up (with) daily workouts."
While this might seem like just a publicity stunt, remember that Canseco was a former contestant on the president's reality show, "The Apprentice" back in 2011, so the two do know each other.
The president has shown that he is open to making non-traditional appointments for positions in his administration.
He has been working to find a replacement Chief of Staff after parting ways with Gen. John Kelly.
Canseco played for the Oakland Athletics for seven seasons from 1985-1992.
He won the American League MVP award while playing with his fellow "Bash Brother" Mark McGwire.
Most recently he worked as an Oakland Athletics baseball analyst for NBC Sports California.
