A$AP Rocky is getting the presidential treatment from Donald Trump in his prison cell
Remember recently when we wrote about A$AP Rocky being in a disease ridden cell? Well now he’s going to get the presidential treatment as Trump himself is working to get him out, as per Kanye West’s decree.
A$AP Rocky has been held up in a Swedish cell for around three weeks now. Though his release could be around the corner.
When you’re an internationally famous rapper like Rocky, worth several millions of dollars, you can usually pull a few strings to get yourself out of a jam.
This time however, that didn’t seem to happen as Rocky has been held up in a Stockholm cell for some time now on charges of assault.
Thankfully though, the Kardashian West power couple swooped in to help the young rapper. West asked to his wife to sort some things out. She contacted Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a high ranking White House official.
Thank you @realDonaldTrump , @SecPompeo, Jared Kushner & everyone involved with the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky & his two friends. Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated https://t.co/Ym1Rzo5Z6c— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 18, 2019
Suddenly, Rocky’s situation made it to Trump’s own ears, and of course his Twitter account.
Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$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
Trump has said he’s speaking to the Prime Minister of Sweden to see what can be done about Rocky’s situation.
The rapper was arrested initially on charges of aggressive assault, though this was then changed to regular assaulted. He, his guard and some of his entourage were hounded on the streets of Stockholm by two men.
The men threw their headphones at the guard and attempted to punch Rocky, at which point the rapper and his friends tackled the offending man.
Still though, Trump is hoping to see it “quickly resolved!”
Surely then everyone is happy, people were calling for justice for the rapper after all.
However, Justin Bieber isn’t happy.
Bieber, a friend of Rocky’s, tweeted that he wanted Rocky out, though he also pointed out the hypocrisy of the matter, suggesting that Trump still allows for the unjust incarceration of migrant children being kept in detention centres.
Just recently, it was revealed Trump’s administration intends to put upwards of 1,400 migrant children in a camp used in WWII as a place to detain various migrant peoples.
It begs the question of where Trump’s priorities really are huh? If only Kanye West would pick up the phone for those children.
