Trump Says Swedish PM "Assured Me That A$AP Rocky Will Be Treated Fairly"

In yet another series of tweets that thousands, maybe millions, of Americans will probably mistake for a meme-account photoshop job, President Trump confirmed Saturday morning that he had, in fact, spoken with the prime minister of Sweden, and assured him that rapper A$AP Rocky wasn't a flight risk.

In fact, Trump said he personally offered to guarantee A$AP Rocky's bail. Though Trump wasn't able to secure Rocky's bail immediately, Trump said he and the Swedish PM would be speaking again in two days to further discuss the situation.

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....

....Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!

As we reported yesterday, Trump revealed Friday night that he had spoken with Kanye West, who had urged him to intercede on fellow rapper A$AP Rocky's behalf. Rocky has been locked up in a Swedish jail since July 5, after getting into a fight with two men outside a venue. Rocky is being charged with assault, and will be held for at least another week, after a Swedish judge deemed him a flight risk.

Since then, many celebrities, including the Kardashian-Wests, have reportedly been lobbying Trump and his senior aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner, to do something to help Rocky out. The White House is apparently making the situation a priority.
