A$AP Rocky to Remain in Swedish Jail for Another Week

ASAP Rocky was born in New York and had a breakthrough in 2011 with the release of the mixtape

Trump told the White House press pool on Friday that his African-American friends called him to help get the rapper released from Swedish jail, saying that others should support his attempts to help as well.

Kardashian West linked to a TMZ report that clarified that Trump is aware of "President A$AP Rocky's legal sitch in Sweden". They say they'll make a final decision next Thursday ... although given their original press release early Friday, it seems the die is already cast - they're going to indict A$AP.

When asked by Trump to give a statement on the situation, the first lady said they are working through the State Department and "we hope to get him home soon".

"So I personally don't know ASAP Rocky, but I can tell you that he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country", he said. And when I say African-American, I think I could really say from everybody in this country.

The weird part about the release was that it stated that prosecutors wanted to keep Rocky, born Rakim Meyers, in jail until next Thursday as they continue to investigate what happened in the street brawl that landed him in jail. "So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!" he tweets.

The first video the artist shared to his social media platform showed what appeared to be the beginning of the street incident that later led to the arrests.

U.S. Representative Adriano Espaillat of NY, where Mayers was born, has also urged his release.

She said their "commitment to justice reform is so appreciated".

Meanwhile, although Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have lobbied President Donald Trump to intervene in the situation, Swedish officials have insisted they have not had any communication with the White House. "As long as the preliminary investigation is ongoing, I can not give any further comments", prosecutor Daniel Suneson, who has taken over the investigation, said in a statement. It said that Kardashian reached out to Trump's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, after West suggested she do so.

Who else is trying to help him?

"Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A AP Rocky's incarceration", he stated.

"The court decided that the artist will remain in custody until July 25 because of the flight risk", Daniel Suneson, the prosecutor in charge of the case, said in a statement.
