Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act. Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2019
Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem! #FreeRocky— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2019
America's embattled President is refusing to give up on trying to free rapper A$AP Rocky from Swedish jail, after the case came to his attention from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
The rapper is being charged with criminal assault in Sweden and will be held in jail until his trial date. He faces 2 years in prison if convicted. Despite pleas from countless celebrities and Trump himself to free the star, Sweden has refused to bow to pressure, and stands behind their decision to allow their justice system to handle the case.
