Donald Trump tells Sweden to release A$AP Rocky and focus on 'its real crime problem'

music news 26/07/2019

After news that rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault and could face up to two years in prison, US President Donald Trump has again weighed in on the situation.

Rocky was involved in an alleged assault in Stockholm on June 30 and has been in custody in Sweden since July 3.

Trump previously revealed he was working with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven to resolve the situation after being asked for help by Kanye West.

A string of recent tweets show that Trump isn't backing down anytime soon - even though the situation doesn't seem any closer to resolution.

Rocky was billed to appear at Tomorrowland this weekend but has been forced to miss the festival alongside a number of other European tour dates due to his imprisonment.
