Trump Says He 'Offered To Personally Vouch' For A$AP Rocky's Bail In Call With Sweden
President Trump on Saturday tweeted about the A$AP Rocky case.
President Trump said he "offered to personally vouch" for rapper A$AP Rocky's bail in a recent call he had with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.
Trump posted a pair of tweets about the exchange Saturday.
"Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly," Trump wrote.
"Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative.
Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!"
According to ABC News, A$AP Rocky "has been held in a Swedish jail for more than two weeks without charges following a street fight."
A slew of celebrities have since lobbied the president who said during his remarks in the Oval Office: "I personally don't know A$AP Rocky, but I can tell you that 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.'"
