Funnily enough, Trump was very concerned with someone being unjustly held in a detention center. Trump among a plethora of other celebrities helped bring the holding of A$AP Rocky in a Swedish detention center to a viral status and called Sweden’s justice system into question.
The President is not a stranger to criticism, which is exactly what he received from Swedish leaders after he demanded the Swedish Prime Minister to release the rapper last month. Not only did this raise the tension between the US and Sweden but it also painted Trump as disrespectful for trying to interfere with the country’s independent judiciary system.
“Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States,”. Trump stated on Twitter.
On August 2nd, Rocky was released from custody and returned to the United States where he will await the August 14 verdict on assault charges, to which he has pled not guilty.
Rocky fans chanted “Free Rocky!” as the rapper’s mother entered the courthouse and upon his release, he was celebrated with fans playing his music outside of the courthouse. He has since thanked them for their support on Instagram.
If you are new to the case, take a look at what’s been going on so far.
Trump himself took to Twitter to welcome the rapper home.
