UPDATE: Donald Trump Responds on Twitter in Support of A$AP Rocky

“I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky.”

UPDATE (July 19, 2019): After Kim Kardashian and Kanye West lobbied Donald Trump to help free A$AP Rocky from prison in Sweden, the President has responded on Twitter. He tweeted out that he will be calling the Prime Minister of Sweden to see how the situation can be resolved.

In a video on The Hill, Donald Trump says, “A$AP Rocky is in a situation in Sweden. Sweden is a great country, and friends of mine and the leadership, and we’re going to be talking to them. We’ve already started. Many, many members of the African-American community have called me, friends of mine, and said, ‘Could you help?’ I personally don’t know A$AP Rocky but I can tell you he has tremendous support from the African-American community in this country, and when I say African-American, I think I can really say from everybody in this country because we’re all one.”

Despite the Trump administration’s efforts, the rapper will be held in jail for one more week. Watch the video below and stay tuned for more updates.


A$AP Rocky was arrested last week (July 2) following a performance at the Smash hip-hop festival in Stockholm, Sweden, CBS reports. Now, TMZ has released news alleging that Rocky is dealing with “inhumane jail conditions” while in a Swedish jail.

The publication reports that he is in a “disease-ridden” facility and is only able to sleep on a yoga mat without any blankets. Additionally, he is sustaining himself on a single apple a day due to the building’s inedible food and is allegedly staying next to a mentally-ill inmate who slams his head against the walls. This individual also reportedly “throws around his own feces, which no one cleans up.”

Rocky and three individuals were involved in an incident that occurred on Sunday (June 31). A Swedish office spokesman shared that the rapper was arrested for suspected “gross assault.” TMZ initially broke the news Monday (June 1) that Rocky and his associates were involved in a brawl. Yet, the Harlem artist shared video clips with his Instagram followers providing a perspective of the incidents that led to the altercation. The last update regarding the arrest of the rapper suggested that he’d been detained for two extra weeks.

Rocky’s team have also started a #JusticeforRocky petition online, it can be viewed and signed at Change.org. Stay tuned here as more news emerges.
