Donald Trump announced on Friday that his “friend” Kanye West and numerous of his friends in the African American community had contacted him to release Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky. The rapper who has now been held in a Swedish prison for 3 weeks cannot seem to catch a break with the Swedish judicial system. Trump insisted during this speech that Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven was a good guy and conducted business as a leader should. Saturday morning Trump tweeted
Although this seems like a step in the right direction leading to freeing A$AP Rocky, spokesperson Toni Eriksson for Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said “he made certain to emphasize the complete independence of the Swedish judicial system, prosecutors & courts.” “In Sweden everyone is equal before the law & the government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings.” So what does that mean for Rocky ??? Only time will tell.
