U.S. President Donald Trump intervened on behalf of rapper A$AP Rocky who was arrested and jailed earlier this month following a street fight with 2 Afghan migrants in Stockholm, Sweden on June 30.

In a Friday tweet, Trump said he had "a very good call" with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, and he assured Lofven that he, Trump, would personally vouch for the rapper's bail.

"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," Trump tweeted.

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

But Fox News called Trump's statement a "hollow offer" since the Scandinavian country does not have a bail system.

The prime minister's press secretary, Toni Eriksson, told U.S. news media that Lofven and Trump's conversation "was friendly and respectful and lasted about 20 minutes.”

But he said Lofven advised Trump that "in Sweden everyone is equal before the law and that the government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings."

Trump's call with Sweden's PM came after a Swedish judge ruled to keep Rocky in jail for the foreseeable future or until his next hearing.

Trump said his wife Melania Trump and influential friends in the Black community urged him to intervene on Rocky's behalf.

Melania brought the matter to Trump's attention after speaking with musician Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian-West.

A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been held in jail for 3 weeks in Sweden. The 30-year-old rapper reportedly said race is not a factor in his ongoing incarceration.

Despite the president's goodwill gesture, many celebrities are not so sure of his intentions. They criticized Trump for his policies affecting immigrants at the border.

Director Ava DuVernay, who is a Democrat, took to Twitter to say, "nobody cares about your token concern."

And singer Justin Bieber, also a Democrat, thanked Trump for his help before tweeting, "can you also let those kids out of cages?"

But Rocky's hometown congressman Rep. Adriano Espaillat welcomed the president's help. In an interview with TMZ on Sunday, Espaillat graciously said any help is appreciated.

    Auntie is back....yeah!!!

  • WhoKnew

    Going off the rail…

    First of all, Sandra “Marrrrcus Busta Rhymes Apple Bottom” Rose we’re glad you’re okay. You had us worried. It was like being “Home Alone”. The Garden was off the chain cutting up and acking a fool (and that was just me). Secondly, now that we know you’re okay. You’ve got some black ass nerve going off without telling us and leaving us stuck in the sister and brother Curry story. Next, I have some off topics to get off my chest from Friday’s lonely desertion.

    1. The Ersher herpes lawsuit is going forward and he is trying to block the release of his medical records because he prolly has a Webster’s dictionary of STDs he don’t want revealed like DAYUUUM you got all that.
    2. Dump is still a dumb MoFo. This forever idiot is going to bat to help free a grown man he could give zero phucs about in the name of publicity but won't uncage babies and children.
    3. The In-a-net did a “who you got” facial challenge comparing Metamucil Melania and Caitlyn “Can’t Get A Wo/Man” Jenner. It was a tie since they look like twins.
    4. Should men with dead eyes be a red flag to a woman? Not sure. Russell Wilson “seems” like a good man but he has “dead beady eyes”. Puff Puff pass Diddy definitely has dead eyes and is def a red flag. This fun sucker is incapable of feeling emotions/love for anyone.
    5. Anyone at the weekend wedding where Dump was kissing people should immediately get a tetanus shot, a shot for rabies, scabies and ALL STDs. They should also get a shot for perpes. That’s the shot you get when you have perp tendencies and so do your friends.
    6. So a white guy with head herpes is crying racism because when he was arrested in Sweden for cocaine possession/use and assault he was released the next day whereas AR has not been released.
    7. Sandra “Marrrrcus Kiss My Black Ass” Rose went to get her back BLOWN all the way out. You betta werk it, guh. We thought you were one-hump Sandy. Come to find out you got at least 3 humps in ya. Hump one…hump…two…hump three…werk it, guh.
    8. It’s hotter than July out chere…oh, wait. It is July. That explains it.

    I lost my love for Tyrese but he went OFF and I agree with him. He says many people have started to work for Cocky and if he gets off 45 will get credit to win the black vote. I’m just waiting to see what 45 wants in return from Kimye for all his help with prison reform. When the election gets closer, will they be campaigning at front and center for him??

    Oh please he made minimal effort. We all know this is how the call went:

    Trump: Can you Release that rapper so it looks like I sometimes care about minorities every once in a while?

    Prime Minister: No, This press makes look like we're tough on all crime. But Maybe we could discuss why you think he should be release.

    Trump: No, that's okay. So, how's the weather?

    Later to American Public

    Trump: I tried my hardest to convince the PM. I built a solid case of why Mr. Rocky should be released and it's possible it'll work, I'll even post bail if I have to.

  • RespectSelf

    lol

  • WhoKnew

    I am not a threat to him or anyone and certainly do not wish him any hurt or harm so they'd be wasting time and taxpayers money. The man has made public sexual comments on TV about his biological daughter. The man has made public sexual comments about women in general and things he's done to women so his own "history" tells "his story".

  • TamG

    How about votes? A politician who wants votes. What a novel idea.

    Trump explicitly and repeatedly asked for the Black vote in 2016. And continually touts the improved employment rates for minorities since taking office. Not sure why it’s a surprise now that he still wants the votes. For a “racist,” he sure doesn’t seem hesitant about appealing to minorities. ?

    it is pathetic that those that can, do not help those that are in jail under false pretensions. No they help someone with a history of criminal activity for their own needs = publicity.

  • WhoKnew

    Morning!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Here's the family-friendly version, with the profanity edited out:

    "Why, because I'm Black? So every time something happens because I'm Black I gotta stand up? What am I, Al Sharpton now? I'm A$AP Rocky. I did not sign up to be no political activist," Rocky was quoted as saying in a July 2016 interview with The Breakfast Club. "I don't wanna talk about no Ferguson because I don't live over there! I live in Soho and Beverly Hills. I can't relate. I'm in the studio; I'm in these fashion studios. I'm not doing anything outside of that. That's my life."

  • Carrington

    Name the person who expects the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES to intervene when a rapper has been arrested....
    WHO would've called him a racist if he had not intervened? He's called a RACIST because it's MONDAY.... and because he IS. But, point us to the calls for the President to step in with regard to A$AP Rocky while we wait. He's involved because he involved HIMSELF. MELANIA asked him (so HE says) not the black community. You think, with ALL the $hit happening within black America that a rapper who jumped someone overseas and got arrested is at the top of our list for Presidential intervention?

    There are far more important issues in the world that need addressing. How about taking the babies and children out of cages and reunite them with their parents? Or how about the war on drugs? Or how about raising the minimum wage so that families can afford food and rent? Those are "needs" not "wants".

  • Anyway

    In the words of Paul Mooney, this is his "nig*a wake up call". This headscarf-wearing MF made it clear, that he's not concerned about black lives. Therefore, I don't care about him or his issues!

    I hope ASAP is allowed to leave soon. The fact that it was a migrant who started this kerfuffle is very concerning. Middle eastern people who call themselves people of skin colour when it is convenient but get away with ish because of their complexion for the protection is a disgrace. Black people always have an issue when people ,don't have the same victim mentality as them. Free ASAP and arrest that POS for even trying him in Sweden.

  • WhoKnew

    Oh hell no. If he said that then leave his ass there. We live in this world together and sometimes you have to have compassion for others who don't live in the high-end high-rent neighborhoods like Beverly Hills and SoHo or can afford to be in a fashion studio. Those same people most times live outside of your community and comfort zone. Think "I can't breathe". Think the water in Flint Michigan that killed people. Think about someone else for a change.

Once he's free, he'll go back then being the same uncaring, pos he's always been. Notice Jay Z & ROC Nation legal eagles didn't involve themselves on his behalf. They know where ASAP stands.

    Sweden has always been a beacon of Hope for many immigrants from around the world BUT had to say "Hold-Up" due to the fact that many immigrants coming into the country (especially some from North Africa) who are Destroying the cultural fabric of said nation.
    They are coming in to Sweden with the purpose of eventually taking it over!
    [I want to say that most immigrants coming into Sweden are wonderful; law-abiding people who are doing the most to contribute to Swedish society in a constructive way. However, there are a few who are intent messing it up for the rest of the people - - as they do here in America - - and YOU Already KNOW Who and What I am Talking about}

    Sweden Denies That The White House Contacted Them About A$AP Rocky - https://newsone.com/3882520/sweden-white-house-asap-rocky/

    Oops! ???

  • The Art

    Exactly! Some foreign countries have extremely low tolerance for street violence. I'm disappointed that he allowed himself to provoked that far. But, that's his problem now.

  • Seldomseen

    Still don’t know who this young man is....but that scarf on his head reminds me of ET in that bike basket going home.

  • Carrington

    What he said, VIA his MOUTH, is that his WIFE asked him to intervene. So, what's "provably" wrong about discounting the REAL ISSUE here, which is the ORIGINAL POINT that he would've been called a racist for NOT intervening. You can use every red herring in the book, but until you address THAT - don't address me.

    Says WHO? He was just as racist BEFORE the election. Isn't this the person who repeatedly attempted to diminish the first black President as illegitimate and someone who cheated to get into the white house - and refused to let it go for his ENTIRE term?

    Isn't this the man who was sued by his Atlantic City employees for being racist? ISN'T this the man who was sued BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT for having management at his luxury building mark applications with "C" for "colored"... isn't this a man who spent his hard earned money to have the CP5 executed for raping a white woman, but the SAME President who, when asked about a murderous dictator who has executed his own family members, referred to him as a "smart cookie, whom I like very much" yet referred to the first black President as a "bad, or sick, guy"...

    He wasn't a racist to WHOM prior to the election? People like you, and Kanye and Jim and Steve, who were feverously trying to convince black folk that he'd be the best thing for us? The same people who, now that SOME of you realize you were willfully ignorant, are trying to subtly admit that you were dead assed wrong by "subtly" reporting the FACTS about him now?

    What made him NOT racist prior to the election? All he did PRIOR to the election was pander to black folk in an effort to build his brand. To suggest that a man who smiled with other rich black folk for photo ops and money making opportunities isn't racist because those photos live on in perpetuity for all of eternity is ridiculous.

    That's like suggesting that the local racist in the office doesn't come to the conference room when they're having cake and ice cream for Sharonda's birthday. Or, that the racist teacher doesn't come into the teachers lounge or smile at the black students or teachers.

    You can be a racist and still function in a world with black folk.

    ""Why, because I'm Black? So every time something happens because I'm Black I gotta stand up? What am I, Al Sharpton now? I'm A$AP Rocky. I did not sign up to be no political activist," Rocky was quoted as saying in a July 2016 interview with The Breakfast Club. "I don't wanna talk about no Ferguson because I don't live over there! I live in Soho and Beverly Hills." - That's why trump bothered to say anything. Rocky's on record saying he doesn't give a damn about injustice in trump's america, putting him in the same sunken place as Kanye. He can rot over there cause I don't know nothing about Sweden, I'm here in the ATL. Next.

    Where are the trolls that usually stan for trump? Don't know how to spin this one? lol

    You can't blame for not believing what "the president" says. I'll take your Time article with a grain of salt.

  • Li-Wright

    A lot of black people and entertainers feel the same way. They don't want to be caught up in pol and race talk. And even today I heard from TMZ that ASAP doesn't want to use race as an excuse.

  • Applebootay

    I definitely believe that being held w/o being charged is that BS...no matter what planet you're on. 2 weeks for a scuffle that was instigated by the victim is long enough...no one died or seriously injured..and trust if he haven't learned his lesson...Karma know where he lives...SOHO and Beverly Hills...lol

  • E Ethel Ballys

    ASAP Rocky didn’t punch a cop in the face or bill rush him when ordered to stop.
