Donald Trump Plans To Help Free A$AP Rocky From A Swedish Jail Thanks To Kanye
It's one of the wildest crossovers we've seen in a while but basically US President Donald Trump has now stepped in to help free A$AP Rocky from a Swedish jail.
The 'Praise The Lord' rapper whose real name Rakim Meyers, found himself in a pretty terrifiying situation after he allegedly assualted a man who had been following him around Stockholm while in the city to perform at a festival.
Days after the alleged assualt took place, the rapper was arrested by the Swedish authorities and has been detained in apparently 'unsanitary conditions'. Since his incarceration, the rapper has received an abundance of support from his fans and fellow artists alike including Meek Mill, Diddy, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone and his two close friends Tyler The Creator and Schoolboy Q have both expressed their disappointment in Sweden by saying they'll never perform in the country again.
Perhaps the biggest call for support came from Kim Kardashian who has now set her focus on criminal justice reform and Kanye West who enlisted the help of President Trump to intervene on the case. TMZ reported that Kim first lobbied the case to the White House through Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner who then passed it on through the Trump administration.

The president took to twitter to announce that he had spoken with Kanye and will now speak with the Prime Minister of Sweden to resolve the case and bring Rocky home.
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!

It sounds like a scary predicament to be in but we can only hope A$AP Rocky is back home in America soon for the sake of his friends and family.
