President Donald Trump is going all-in in his attempt to free A$AP Rocky from his Swedish jail cell.
Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2019
Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2019
....Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2019
However, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said he won't interfere with his country's judicial process no matter who asks.
“[I] cannot and will not attempt to influence prosecutors or courts," he told the press after speaking to Trump.
“I will explain that the Swedish judicial system is independent," he continued. "In Sweden, everyone is equal before the law, and this includes visitors from other countries."
A$AP Rocky has been locked up for more than three weeks because he got caught on tape body-slamming a young Swede. Rocky's team says the boy and his buddy were harassing them and all the women in the area. Rocky hasn't been charged yet. If he is, he faces up to six years.
