Sweden Wants Extension of Rapper's Detention After Fight

  • Jared Kushner and A$AP Rocky

The president commented publicly on the case at the White House after reports revealed that he was working to resolve the case after the rapper was arrested in Sweden on July 2 after a street brawl.

President Trump said he has received a flood of appeals to help secure the release of ASAP Rocky after the American rapper was arrested in Sweden. We are going to be calling.

"Actually, the one that knew about A$AP Rocky was first was our First Lady - she told me, 'Can you help A$AP Rocky?' You want to give a statement on that?" the president said, to which the first lady replied, "I've been working with the State Department".

One of which is that the citizen of the non-native country has to serve a sentence in his home country, or has to go back to his native land to face a criminal trial.

That's the nail in the coffin on three-plus weeks of jail time without charges, as prosecutors have long argued the rapper (real name Rakim Mayers) is a "flight risk" on account of his American background and now-canceled European tour.

On July 9, a source close to the rapper told PEOPLE that the Swedish jail where A$AP Rocky was being held is "inhumane" and "horrific". A$AP Rocky's lawyer has called the fight a matter of self-defense, claiming that the two men "followed, harassed, and physically assaulted" his client.

NY rapper A$AP Rocky isn't coming back home quite yet. "Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated", Kim tweeted this afternoon.

The Justice Department announced on July 19 that roughly 3,100 USA inmates, including many convicted of drug offenses, will be released early from federal prisons for good behavior under a criminal justice reform law signed a year ago by Trump.

Trump said Friday that members of the African American community had brought ASAP's detainment to his attention.

"We have worked intensively with the investigation and need more time, until Thursday next week in order to complete the preliminary investigation", Suneson said. US representatives Adriano Espaillat (NY-13), Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08), Joaquin Castro (TX-20), and André Carson (D-IN) released a joint statement saying they have reached out to the Swedish government.

Some celebrities who have reached out to the White House in support of the detained rapper were Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West - both of whom have previously met with Trump on other matters.
